Further exponent of the Calatrava family, the reference 3435 wristwatch surprises for its simple elegance and clean beauty. Launched in 1960 until 1970, the reference 3435 was created to replace the preceding reference 2584 of which it differs by a smaller case. According to scholars, fewer than 500 pieces were made with this reference in total. The present lot is a very fine specimen in 18k pink gold with a two-body case, inclined bezel, straight lugs and snap on back in great conditions with clear hallmark on the lug. The silver dial has applied pink-gold baton indexes and Arabic 12, subsidiary seconds dial and gold baton hands. To further enhanced this gorgeous timepiece, a precious tile-style Patek Philippe bracelet. Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in pink gold in 1966 and its subsequent sale on 30 November 1967.
