Essay: Introduced by Patek Philippe in 1946 the reference 2440 is also known as the "clubs" model, and is considered one of the rarest shape watches amongst collectors. Created with a large rectangular case, the name "clubs" derives from the prominent double drop flat shape lugs, reminiscent of clover leaves, as well as the "club-shaped" hour indexes at 3 and 9 o'clock.
The reference 2440 was made in yellow and rose gold and Patek Philippe ceased production in 1953.
