SOLD - Patek Philippe Calatrava ref. 3537 Rare Rose Gold Example with Gold Linen Dial Vintage 1970
Collectors agree, it is getting extremely difficult to find a completely original Patek Philippe Calatrava, especially in excellent (close to near mint) condition. The Calatrava ref. 3537 being offered here is the rarest of all of this model with a solid 18k rose gold case combined with a gold dial and linen texture. This watch has its original Patek matte black alligator strap, original 18k gold Patek buckle, original minty unmolested dial, original clean overhauled movement, original hands and applied indices and original case finish. This is a collectors dream. Even if you're not a collector, you have to admire how fine this watch is. Remarkably this 33mm (not including crown) dress watch has a larger presence on the wrist due to to its incredibly slim profile (under 7mm in depth including the slightly domed crystal) and super discreet bezel. This puts the 3537 in the ultra-thin category which is a recognized complication in itself. Powered by the trusted and reliable Patek manual wind cal.23-300, this piece is as classic as it gets with its perfectly round case and straight lugs. The purist in you will not be disappointed. A great find at a fraction of the price of a new Calatrava, don't let this one pass you by. Sale price is firm and includes free insured domestic shipping. Thank you and enjoy.
