The Patek Philippe reference 2503 features a rectangular case, raised hold hour markers, leaf hands, domed crystal, and oversized fancy lugs. This watch was owned by Andy Warhol and was previously offered in a jewelry and watches auction of “The Andy Warhol Collection” at Sotheby’s in 1988. Andy was renowned for his excellent taste in fine watches and this reference 2503 reflects his taste in elegant watches with timeless appeal. In fact, the remarkable beauty of this watch is reflected in its selection as one of two watches featured on the cover of the auction catalog in 1988. This is a rare opportunity to own a watch once owned by Andy Warhol and would be a great addition to any watch collection.
