1970s Patek Philippe Calatrava Back-Wind 3580 35mm - Serviced

CHF 6'600.00

incl. tax, plus shipping

Description

This is one of the most unusual models that Patek ever produced. It is certainly the most 1970s design that they brought to the market. With its back-wind crown and a 35.4mm steel case which is somewhere between oval and tonneau shaped, it really has a distinctive look.

It is also a very rare bird as only an estimated 500 pcs of this reference have been produced. This one has been freshly serviced and comes on a new Patek leather strap with a generic whitegold filled buckle. According to the previous owner, the movement had been replaced in the early years. So this cal. 350 is not the first one in this watch. We have priced it accordingly.
