Rare, collectible, exceptional. The Patek Philippe Ref.2551 is sharing one nickname with the Ref.2552 - "Disco Volante" thanks to its' specific shape of the case. The shape of the case was caused by specific needs: a two-piece case with screw-down caseback needed to accommodate the first ever automatic movement made by Patek: caliber 12-600. This particular watch is notable for its' great condition and charmingly aged dial which turned into champagne tone over decades.
