Equipped with an identical and still exquisite enamel dial, the Patek Philippe Calatrava ref. 2577 Replica is starkly different from the ref. 2526. Launched in 1956 and produced for only a brief period, the ref. 2577 is powered by the hand-wound cal. 10-200, a fairly numerous 10”’ movement found in dozens of references.
More unusual is the angular case, with sharply sculptured lugs that extend downwards at a pronounced angle and a flat, sloped bezel. The shape immediately evokes the ref. 3448 perpetual calendar, introduced just a few years later in 1962. Though is a smallish 35mm case Patek Philippe Replica Watches in diameter, its styling allows it to wear slightly larger.
A prominent “Freccero” above the subsidiary seconds in black lacquer – the lettering at 12 o’clock is in gold print – indicates this was originally sold by Freccero y Cia, the jeweller in Montevideo, Uruguay, which is still in business though no longer a Copy Patek Philippe Watch retailer.
While this is the only pink ref. 2577 that’s double signed, the Fake Patek Philippe Watches shows more age than its peer at Christie’s. The case still retains its original shape, including the broad bevels on the lugs and the brushed finished on its flanks, but the surface is covered in scuffs with the occasional, painful dent.
Like the example at Christie’s this has a handful of faint but visible flaws on the dial, namely three hairlines on the lower half around the hour markers.
