18ct vintage Patek Philippe watch reference 2460 from the 1950's

A brief history on Patek Philippe:
Polish watchmaker Antoni Patek started making pocket watches in 1839 in Geneva. Along with his fellow Czech-born Polish partner Franciszek Czapek,however this was short lived. They separated in 1844, and in 1845 Patek joined with the French watchmaker Adrien Philippe. Philippe was the inventor of the keyless winding mechanism. Patek Philippe & Co was founded in 1851 and since then Patek Philippe have become famous for high grade movements such as the perpetual calendar, split-seconds hand, chronograph, and minute repeater in watches.

Making watches for such people as Pope Pius IX, Queen Victoria, Victor Emanuel III of Italy, Christian IX of Denmark, and Albert Einstein. Patek Philippe also made the worlds most expensive timepiece – The Henry Graves Super complication. Made in 1933 for the prominent banker Henry Graves, Jr. The ultra-complicated pocket watch has 24 functions and was the result of Graves’ friendly horological competition with James Ward Packard. After Graves’ death, the watch was auctioned at Sotheby’s in December 1999 for US$11 million to Sheikh Saud Bin Mohammed Bin Ali Al-Thani of the Qatari royal family, at that time the most expensive timepiece ever sold. Most recently, the watch sold at Sotheby’s Geneva Auction on November 11, 2014 for a record breaking US$24 million.

The Calatrava takes its name from the Calatrava cross, the cruciform symbol first used on the marching banners of the Calatrava knights who defended the Calatrava fortress against the Moors in 1158. The Patek Philippe Calatrava was first launched in 1932 and has remained one of their most iconic and sought after models.

And as Patek Philippe have said for over twenty years, "You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation"
