Catalogue Note

Production for reference 3417 commenced in 1958. An amagnetic model, this designation is sometimes noted on the dial, though it is not uncommon to find examples with no such marking. Debuted in 1958, caliber 12"'AM-400 was Patek Philippe's first amagnetic movement. The watch is fitted with a gold lever so that it could withstand and maintain accuracy near high magnetic fields.
