Patek Philippe perpetual calendar pocket watch ref. 725/2J
The ref. 725 was the design inspiration for a long line of Patek Philippe perpetual calendars and perpetual calendar chronographs. It was made in two main series, the first with four subsidiary dials and the second with a triple calendar ‘American-style’ straight line indication.
This example of a ref. 725/2J features the coveted Tiffany & Co. signature with an exceptionally preserved silvered dial with perfectly raised hard enamel. The Arabic numbers and 5-minute dots are developing an attractive patina. The case is in equally impressive condition with crisp hallmarks. This is a superlative example of Patek Philippe’s incredible work from the 1950s.
Fewer than 100 ref. 725s were made in all configurations and fewer than 21 are known in yellow gold; only a couple are known with a Tiffany & Co. signature. Five examples of the reference are now part of the Patek Philippe Museum, a testament to the watch’s importance to the Patek Phillippe lineage.
