-Description

Patek Philippe is a watch brand founded in Geneva in 1839. The company uses its unparalleled quality and technical expertise to make watches without any compromise.

The independence of the family business and the reliability that all watches can be repaired create a value as an asset that can be passed on from generation to generation.

In addition to the fact that it continues to be the world's premier manufacture, the brand is also synonymous with luxury watches due to the extremely small number of watches produced.

This watch is the Calatrava reference 3574, the pinnacle of classic dress watches and the symbol of the brand.

Reference 3574 iwas only produced for a limited period of time, from 1970 to 1974. It is said that only a few hundred were produced.The material is only steel and it has a waterproof screw back, which is unusual for a Calatrava.

The case is a 35mm tonneau-shaped case. Not only Calatrava Even when you look at Patek Philippe as a whole, it can be said to be a quite unique design. It has the impression of being a sporty dress watch, and is only 8mm thick.

The dial has a sandblasted blue dial. It is written as "Crystal-blue dial" on the archive.

The hands and indexes are made of 18k white gold and guilloche-engraved.The engraving patterns differs between hands and indexes are also different, showing the exquisite finishing techniques typical of Patek Philippe.

Reference 3574 is available in three variations: silver dial with sunray finish, silver dial with tapestry engraving of the Calatrava pattern, and this blue dial.Among collectors the blue dial is considered the rarest 
variation.

The movement is the hand-wound Cal. 23-300 PM, the thinnest of Patek's 10 line (23mm diameter) movement, a successful thinning of the Cal. 10-200 calibre with a gyromax balance.

Reference 3574 has not been underrated because there are few records of it, but it is a rare pre-Nautilus steel-only watch with a water-resistant Calatrava, a blue dial and guilloché hands and indices that are full of character.

It comes with the extract from the archives acquired in December 2023
