This absolutely spectacular Patek Philippe Flame Lugs 2431 dates from the early 1950s.

The so-called flame lugs create an extraordinary look and make the watch a striking eye-catcher. The reference 2431 was introduced around 1948 and was only in production for a few years. Without a doubt, this 18k yellow gold case is one of Patek Philippe's most imposing designs. At the same time, the watch offers a timeless elegance thanks to the silver dial with small seconds at 6 o'clock, thin "feuille" gold hands and gold hour markers.

This Patek Philippe Calatrava is an extremely valuable collector's watch. Not only because of the preserved condition, which is absolutely impressive considering the old age of over 70 years. But also due to the certificate of origin with a stamped movement number from the year of sale.
