  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 1960 and produced until 1970, the Patek Philippe reference 3435 is a gorgeous vintage watch with a characteristic snap-back case back. The reference 3435 was created to replace the preceding reference 2584 of which it differs by a smaller case. Adding an element of rarity, the reference was mostly made in yellow gold, and only a handful of examples were produced in platinum and pink gold. Less than 500 examples were made with this reference in total. To our best knowledge, the present watch is fresh to the market, making it a great timepiece to own.

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
