Essay: Introduced in 1948 by Patek Philippe the reference 2431 in is affectionately known as the so-called ‘Flame Lug’  by collectors. The 18ct gold case of the reference 2431 has a substantial stepped case and flared lugs and is one of the most sculptural case designs ever used by the company. Without doubt, the design is one of Patek Philippe’s most iconic from the period and the heavy gold case lends the watch an impressive weight.
