Reference 344/1, such as the lot here offered, was launched in 1967, the exact same year of the Patek Philippe Ellipse and was the first piece in the Golden Circle series and was produced for about a decade. This very lot strikes at a first glance for the beauty and aesthetic quality of both case and dial. The three-body solid case has rounded bezel and snap on back and has been manufactured in precious 18k white gold absolutely perfectly preserved. To the watch is linked the untouched integrated bracelet also in 18k white gold with subtle woven decoration and the original Patek Philippe claps with stamps. The satin blue dial has applied white-gold baton indexes and white-gold baton hands with absolutely no presence of signs. The caliber is the 23–300, rhodium plated, stamped with the seal of Geneva Quality Mark and another very special feature is the presence of the Certificate of Original of the time and check when purchased. With Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin confirming the movement, case material, caliber, reference and the sale in 1972 and completed by its original check.
