1953 Patek Philippe 18k RG Calatrava 2481 R

$36,950

Case: Excellent and sharp 18k rose gold 37mm stepped case that shows very light wear. The concave bezel also in excellent condition shows very light wear.

Dial: The original "Ruby Sultan" dial was replaced at Patek with this beautiful pearlescent white dial with rose gold markers and matching hands. The dial shows very little if any patina from age.

Bracelet: The Patek 18k rose gold brick bracelet is excellent and has very light stretch for its age. The bracelet will adjust to fit between a 7 and 7.5 inch wrist.

Accessories: None.

Notes: This watch was originally produced as a special order for Saudi Arabia's Patek retailer Red Sea Trading. This 2481 began its life with a ruby dial featuring a hand painted portrait of the King of Saudi Arabia. The original owner of the watch changed the dial at Patek in the 1950's. The watch has been in one family until now.
