The Other Platinum Patek Philippe Reference 2497P

This is a pretty profound find, and chances are, you have never seen these photos before of the other platinum Patek Philippe Reference 2497P. In other words, there are only two known examples of this Patek Philippe watch in the world.

I have already published extensive photos of the other Platinum Reference 2497, and this is the first time I am showing the other known example which has diamond markers instead of Breguet markers.

The two known example of this watch represent the only perpetual calendars made by Patek Philippe up until the early 1980s. That is pretty profound if you think about it, that Patek Philippe only made two complicated platinum watches in the 1950s, and did not produce another until the 1980s.
