PATEK PHILIPPE SELF-WINDING ‘GOLDEN CIRCLE’, REF. 3604J
The ref. 3604 is a beloved favorite for Ellipse and Golden Circle collectors. Classic, uniquely 1970s in flavor, this automatic watch fits large on the wrist and highlights the quintessential Patek Philippe blued gold dial, recognizable across a room. Made during the 1970s, before being discontinued in 1980, this reference was offered with a variety of dial styles including blue, autumn gold (brown), white, gilt, and waffle textured. This example, born in 1976 and sold on the Fourth of July, features one of the most beautifully aged blue dials Collectability has ever seen. Evenly discolored from its original blue to a purple tone, this watch delights in its fine condition and stunning overall aesthetic.
