Production of reference 3363/2 began in 1965 and ceased around 1971. To the best of our knowledge, only two other examples in white gold have previously appeared in major watch auctions. A catalogue from the period listed it as available in yellow and white gold, with a setting of approximately 1 carat of diamonds. Patek Philippe’s case maker for this example was Ponti Gennari who, interestingly, was based where the Patek Philippe Museum is now located.
Watch is in overall good condition, running and ready to wear!
