In the realm of horology, the Patek Philippe ref. 2594 is a rare gem, crafted with precision and grace. The ref 2594 started production in 1958, and graced the wrists of discerning collectors until the late 1960s, showcasing a symphony of case styles. The flat bezel of the watch was a canvas of design and over 10 different versions were produced with various bezels including flat, decorated, diamond, hobnail, and patterned. The ref. 2594 shares its shape and style with Patek's illustrious ref. 2552, affectionately known as the "Disco Volante" – a moniker coined by Italian aficionados, translating to "flying saucer." There's an argument to be made that the 2594 is even more flying saucer-like than the Patek that bears the nickname. The wide bezel is most definitely a distinguishing feature and really makes an outsized impact on the wrist presence of the watch. Adding an extra layer of distinction to this ref. 2594 is the presence of the coveted "Serpico y Laino" signature gracing its dial, accompanied by the prestigious S&L stamp adorning the case back. Serpico y Laino, a paragon of watch retailing in Caracas, Venezuela, reigned supreme in South America from the 1930s until its closure in 1966.

This ref. 2594 is in overall very good vintage condition. The case is strong with just minor scratches. The wide bezel has some scratches as well as a few very faint indentations. The caseback shows its original brushed finishing and has the coveted S&L stamp only stamped for watches sold at Serapico y Laino. The dial is overall clean. As can be seen on the pictures, there is a noticeable small stain between the 7 and 8 o'clock index as well as some minor blemishes around the 3 to 5 o'clock edges. The sunken hour markers are in excellent condition, having developed a slight patina. The hands are in excellent condition too. The dial, case, caseback, crown, and movement are signed by Patek Philippe. Inside the caseback, there is a hallmark stamp depicting the number "2" inside of a key, indicating the casemaker was Frédéric Baumgartner SA. The movement was recently serviced by a former Patek Phillipe watchmaker in Tokyo on October 2023. Currently it is running at an excellent +2.2 seconds per day. The watch comes with a 3 month movement warranty from us. The watch comes with its original Patek Phillipe signed yellow gold buckle. It also comes with a Patek Philippe extract from the archives and Patek Philippe service watch case.
