Only 179 2497s were made, and of those, only approximately 20 are known to have been made in rose gold–and of those not up to 1/2 have gave the impression back in the marketplace. It is likely one of the most rare and collectable Patek wristwatches of all time. So rare, it’s almost overwhelming for the collector to behold. Additionally, this is likely one of the uber-rare Wenger made cases–measuring a fairly massive 37mm diameter by 13.2mm thick–a full millimeter larger than the Vichet made cases. Inside case back shows Key ‘1’ designating Wenger production.This watch features a 100% original mint+ condition case and the more desirable original untouched 1st series silver indelible dial with applied rose gold Arabic numerals and dot markers.
