PATEK PHILIPPE SELF-WINDING ‘GOLDEN CIRCLE’ BRACELET WATCH, REF. 3604J
The ref. 3604 ‘Golden Circle’ was launched in 1971 to complement the popular Ellipse family. Many mistakenly refer to this reference as an Ellipse but it is not, it is a separate collection in its own right. Made in 18K white gold or yellow gold, a variety of dial options were available such as blue, gilt, silvered, and of course the forever popular ‘vermeer’, or brown color. This 3604/1J bracelet is stunningly preserved and makes a positively reptilian statement on the wrist. This example is one of the last ref. 3604s to leave the factory.
