Throwback Thursday: Patek Philippe ‘The Garrard’s 2497’

Not all watches are created equal, and this is even the case when we are talking about Patek Philippe. Among its rich history, does reference 2497 hold a special place. This perpetual calendar was launched in 1951, together with reference 2499, which also features a chronograph. It took over from reference 1526 and set itself apart from its predecessor by its more lavish and generous styled case, which has a diameter of 37mm.
