Catalogue Note

Patek Philippe's reference 3603, in production from 1973 until 1982 was amongst one of the largest rectangular wristwatches ever made by the firm.

The Beta-21 calibre was developed by a consortium of watch companies, including Patek Philippe, at the Swiss Electronic Research centre or CEH (Centre Electronique Horloger) in Neuchâtel. It was the first quartz movement for wristwatches with analogue display. The present watch, is one of these rare examples and comes completel with its original certificate.
