  • Catalogue Essay

    Reference 2584 is one of Patek Philippe’s rarest time-only models, the prestigious Asprey signature adding extra charisma and desirability to this reference of classic beauty.

    Made for a very short period, only 52 reference 2584 in yellow gold are known, of which the present model is the only one bearing the Asprey signature to appear on the market. The inside caseback correctly features London hallmarks and is stamped A&Co.Ltd (for Asprey & Co.).

    This model is powered by the now iconic automatic Patek Philippe caliber 12-600, considered by the cognoscenti as being the most beautiful vintage automatic wristwatch movement ever designed. It is not only finished to the highest degree, as attested by the Geneva seal, but it also features a Gyromax balance and an 18k gold guilloché rotor.

    Furthermore, the reference 2584 features an ingenious snap on back with raised borders fitting snugly into the case and thus increasing the water resistance.

    Not only is the present yellow gold reference 2584 with Asprey signature the only one known in this combination, but it is a watch of incredibly suave charisma and is in very appealing condition, and is a superb addition to any connoisseurs' collection.
