    Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives.

    Reference 3445 is Patek Philippe's first calendar model made in series. The model was in production from 1961 to 1981.

    The particularity of the present watch lies in its black painted hour markers and hands, believed to be a special request by the original owner to make the dial more legible.
