Finding a Patek reference 3450 in such breathtaking condition is a real stroke of luck!
Bought on March 29th, 1985 at the Patek Philippe Salon in Geneva itself, the watch has survived the years in a pristine state and is in exceptional condition - with sharp, faceted lugs, a smooth bezel and crisp hallmarks on the outside of the case. The dial is also in remarkable condition without even the slightest wear and tear.

From 1981 to 1986 only 244 examples of this reference with automatic calibre 27-460QB were produced, most of them in yellow gold with some very few copies in rosé or white gold. The successor of reference 3448, reference 3450 comes with a modified leap year indication. The watches of the first series had Arabic numerals for the first three years and a red disc for the fourth year; the second series had Roman numerals that were visible in a small window at 4 o'clock.
The leap year function is operated by calibre 27-460QB (Quantiem Bissextile), a modified version of automatic movement 27-460 which was introduced in 1962.
Case: very good
Dial: very good
Movm.: very good, capable of running
