HANDS Original


Dial, case and movement signed. DIAM. 35 mm. THICKNESS 10 mm. Probably one of the best examples of a yellow gold 3445 that we have ever offered at auction. Still fitted with its original Patek Philippe leather band and buckle, the case is in close to new old stock condition with perfect deep hallmarks to the case indicating virtually no polish at all and a beautifully preserved large wide bezel.
