Random Act Of Beauty! Patek 2526

Today's "Random Act Of Beauty!" is the legendary:

Patek Philippe ref. 2526.
Introduced in 1953, the ref. 2526 was Patek Philippe's first automatic offering. The piece features the 30-jewel caliber 12-600 AT (automatic) movement. The case and dial design of the piece is still  relevant today. Echoes of the design are even found in the current collection "Calatrava".  This beautiful piece is one of the most desired non complicated pieced from the company and commands quite a sum at auction. One of the most interesting and significant features is the Porcelain/Enamel dial with applied markers. This feature is interesting, as most other Patek watches from this period featured metal dials with only a few applied baton markers. Another interesting variant found in this piece is the double "P' on the crown as opposed to the more commonly found Calatrava cross logo.
