PROPERTY FROM AN IMPORTANT PRIVATE COLLECTOR
This particularly example has a very special feature, one that always serves to captivate collectors; a double signed dial. This 3448, signed ‘Asprey’ beneath the moon phases aperture, comes accompanied by its original box and paperwork including the Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin stamped Asprey & Co Ltd confirming the signature to the dial. What is more it has been preserved in very original condition, retaining strong proportions and crisp edges.
The case design, in comparison to the models it succeeded, displays a clear departure from Patek’s aesthetic, especially when compared to the other perpetual calendar models. The case is somewhat brutalist in appearance, utilising sharper lines and angles to the lugs and bezel, the bezel itself is flat and wider than other models which tended to be softer and more rounded. The combination of these characteristics give the reference a very contemporary feel even today, it is therefore to be expected that the watch remains a hugely desirable model.
