HANDS Original


Dial, case and movement signed. DIAM. 35 mm. THICKNESS 10 mm. REFERENCE 3504 is a very unusual reference and has only ever appeared at auction once in the last 30 years. With a case resembling most Patek Philippe of the time, the combination of a white gold waterproof case with a center-seconds is certainly unusual and contributes to the more modern look of this reference.
