PATEK PHILIPPE YELLOW GOLD LADIES BRACELET WATCH REF. 2100J
The ref. 2100J is a watch shrouded in mystery and celebrated for its beauty and boldness. During WWII, this reference was marketed by Patek Philippe all around the world, including in Paris and New York, and did not come at a small price — it originally cost 2700 USD in 1946. (For comparison, this was almost double the retail asking price of a ref. 1518 perpetual calendar chronograph.) Not only is this ref. 2100 exceedingly rare, it is exceptionally beautiful. Placing this watch on the wrist is an experience in appreciation of the case and bracelet making art. Pressing the discreet button hidden on the side of the bracelet to release the spring loaded lid and reveal the dial is just something you need to experience. We can only imagine the woman who originally wore this watch in the late 1940s: pure elegance. To see an identical example with all its original links, just like our example, see the Patek Philippe Museum book, Vol. II, p. 200 or you can simply visit the Patek Philippe Museum in Geneva to see the watch through its glass case. Better yet, you can own one yourself and Collectability is pleased to present you this little bit of history for your wrist.
