    To the best of our knowledge the present watch has never before been offered in public.

    Patek Philippe produced the reference 3477 from approximately 1963 until approximately 1966. The model may have only been produced in yellow gold and is considered an extra flat model.

    A similar model is illustrated in Patek Philippe Wristwatches, by O. Patrizzi, Volume 2, p. 227, pl. 936.
