Reference 3604, in production from 1971 to 1980, is a remarkable example of 1970s design: this is the largest cushion-shaped mechanical vintage wristwatch ever produced by Patek Philippe, surpassed in size only by the electromechanical Beta 21. This watch comes with a large case made out of solid white gold with bronze dial. The model belongs to the “golden circle” collection and is affectionately nicknamed “television” by collectors. Reference 3604 was only available in yellow or white gold with either an alligator strap or, more luxuriously, with an integrated gold bracelet such as the present lot with a very nice braided pattern. The conditions of both case and bracelet are simply great while the bronze dial with the date window at 3 o’clock shines incredibly when lit by the sunlight.
