PATEK PHILIPPE, PLATINUM REF 3445P WITH DIAMOND DIAL

CASE DIAMETER: 35mm
DIAL: Silvered, diamond-set indexes, subsidiary seconds, date
MOVEMENT: Automatic
FUNCTIONS: Date
CALIBER: 27-460
BOX: No
PAPERS: No
ACCESSORIES: Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming manufacture date of 1964 with diamond hour-markers and sale date of May 6, 1964; Please note this lot is the property of a private individual."

"Of all versions of reference 3445, the present watch is undoubtedly one of the most important, rarest and most desirable of them all. One of the exceedingly small series of only 12 known examples of reference 3445 in platinum, the most prestigious and costliest of the reference, it is furthermore highlighted by 8 round and 3 baguette diamonds as hour markers, fully confirmed by the Extract from the Archives.

The superb condition is hard to be comprehended without closer inspection. To find a watch of this importance in unpolished condition with crisp hallmarks is exceptional. A crisp hallmark can be seen to both the top left leg and right case side. With its dial showing a warmer tone to enhance the beauty of the three baguette and eight brilliant-cut diamonds, it is a collector’s dream piece. Furthermore, the movement is stamped HOX, indicating it was originally intended for the American market.

Known by collectors as the “monodate”, Patek Philippe's standard reference 3445 is considered as one of the most convincing and timeless designs ever created for any wristwatch. It is free of any decoration and was never intended to be fashionable. On the contrary, with a production spanning two full decades it has proven to withstand passing trends and the ever changing moods of consumers. Consequently, it comes as no surprise that reference 3445 was made in all different colors of gold but also, in an extremely small quantity, in platinum.

Reference 3445, Patek Philippe's first calendar watch made in series, was in production from 1961 to 1981.

The model and its caliber 27-460M movement are illustrated in: Patek Philippe Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, first edition, pp. 172 & 173.
