John Goldberger's Ultra Rare Patek Philippe Reference 2497

John Goldberger's Ultra Rare
1954 Patek Philippe: 37mm Reference 2497

John Goldberger is one of the top horological collectors and experts in the world. He lives in Italy and he is a good friend of mine. When John found out I launched my Patek Philippe Blog, he sent me a really nice congratulatory message:

Dear Jake,

My compliments for your new Patek blog. Earlier this week you showed off a very rare platinum Patek Philippe Reference 2497! I sent you some detailed images of this beauty.

Ciao John

Beside being a top horological collector and publisher, John also publishes watch books. I did a podcast recording with him back in 2008 on regarding his amazing boon named 100 Superlative Rolex Watches.

John recently published an amazing book on stainless steel Patek Philippe books, which I plan to do a review on as soon as I get a chance. Here is a copy of the cover of his beautiful book:
