Lot Essay

Patek Philippe introduced the reference 2552 in 1954 and discontinued it in circa 1960. This model is one of the few references that house the automatic caliber 12-600. These models feature a thick stepped round bezel, hence the nickname "Disco Volante," or flying saucer. The movement on this example is stamped, "HOX," indicating it was made for the American market.
