A truly special creation by Patek Philippe, the reference 3561 such as the present watch is a very rare discovery since only 150 examples (all in yellow gold) are thought to have been produced between 1968 and 1970. The two body case with concave lugs is very nicely preserved and its sapphire display back is something unusual for that period. The silver dial is immaculate with applied yellow-gold baton indexes, outer minute divisions, subsidiary seconds and yellow-gold baton hands. This watch is also provided with the extract from the archives confirming its yellow-gold case and its production in 1974 and subsequent sale on the 23rd of January 1975.
