A Patek certainly can be an elegant timepiece but this 2431 from 1949 literally sets your wrist on fire. This reference is a sought-after and beloved collectors piece and it is easy to see why. The twisted ‘flamed or flared’ lugs are so outstanding yet it still is a sophisticated decoration. The original dial is clean and the overall condition of the case and movement is crisp. Comes with the original Extract of the Archives. What a deal!
