Lot Essay

Preserved in excellent condition with hard enamel signature, the present timepiece is an extremely rare reference 3433. According to our research, Patek Philippe produced only 5 pieces in platinum from which only 3 are known from the market.

Reference 3433 was launched in 1960 and was the direct successor to reference 2551. It was fitted with calibre 27-460, newly introduced in the same year. Cal. 27-460 is the new name given to the final evolution of cal. 12-600, considered by many one of the best automatic movements ever made in the entire history of watchmaking.
