The 2481 was in production for nearly a decade from 1950 to 1960, with most examples in yellow gold, with a more limited production in rose gold, one example is known in platinum.
With its 37mm case diameter, it is one of the largest vintage Patek Philippe ever produced, a trait that is nowadays making this model more and more sought-after. Equipped with the celebrated 27SC caliber, the best sweep seconds caliber available at the time. The fascinating case design still retains a "Calatrava" feeling, but with the adoption of unusual, avant-garde solutions such as the concave bezel and the heavily stepped lugs, it is a timepiece that, thanks to the visionary genius of Patek Philippe's design artists, can be worn and appreciated daily even today, more than fifty years after its conception.
