  • Catalogue Essay

    Reference 3411 is incredibly rare. Launched in 1959, the reference remained in production until the late 1960s. Most examples were was cased in yellow gold. White gold examples in comparison hardly appear on the market, and only a few have surfaced to date. This Calatrava has been preserved in very good condition, with a strong hallmark to the band.
