The Most Prolific Modern Artist In History
...Patek Philippe Coolness...
Finding historic photos of famous people wearing Patek Philippe watches is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
It is difficult to tell exactly which model watch Picasso is wearing in this photo. It is definitely a triple-date moon phase with the digital month and day aperture windows.
When I first saw the image my best guess was that Picasso was wearing an early Patek Philippe Reference 2497 like the one pictured below his photo. Then my friend and leading Patek Philippe collector, John Goldberger chimed in an said Picasso is wearing a triple date calendar by Jager le Coltre.
It definitely appears Pablo Picasso was really into collecting watches and ironically I recently found and published amazing photo of Picasso sporting a Rolex GMT Master while wearing an American Indian headdress on Jake's Rolex World.
