1962 Patek Philippe Vintage Mens Handwound Watch, Ref. 2573 - 18K Gold

Patek Philippe

Item No. 6492SH

We are proud to offer this very fine Patek Philippe mens watch that has its first original Patek band and buckle.

With its understated silver face and timeless case with partially hidden, downward turned lugs, it showcases a classic and elegant vintage Patek style.

Powering the watch is its illustrious Patek Philippe 10 ligne movement, stamped in two places with the prestigious Poinçon de Genève, unquestionably among the finest hand-winding movements ever built.

It presents in beautiful condition. Its thin Patek Philippe case is gorgeous mint - it still has wonderfully crisp lines.

Its silver dial shows only very light aging and is a partial or full nice vintage reprinting. All parts are original to the watch down to the dial, hands, and winding crown. And its movement is very clean. Photos of the inside available upon request.

A watch that was given as a gift, it appears to have spent most of its life safely stored away and still has its original band and buckle. While it's always special to have a Patek that has a Patek band, it's also usually one put on by a collector in more recent times - how often do you find a Patek that still has its true original band and buckle from the factory? It's very cool.

One of our watchmakers has freshly cleaned and oiled the movement and replaced the set lever with a correct new-old-stock Patek original.

Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to the watch's performance.
