Catalogue Note

Launched at the end of the 1950s the reference 3415 had a particularly short production period, perhaps less than 2 years, and was discontinued in 1960. Of the production, as is often the case with Patek Philippe, the majority were housed in yellow gold cases. Indeed of the pieces made, approximately 370, it is estimated that a few as 40 pieces were made in pink gold and of those only 3 have returned to the market.

The present lot is offered in very crisp condition and still retaining its original PP crown was manufactured in 1958, making this example perhaps one of the earliest iterations known.
