Reference 3417 was Patek Philippe's first anti-magnetic wristwatch produced in series and was made in stainless steel only. Launched in 1958 it was produced for two years using caliber 12'''400. As of 1960, the model was fitted with caliber 27-AM 400 until the end of production in the late 1960s.
The present model was made especially for the American market, as seen by the import stamp HOX to the movement. As one of the last 3417's to ever be made, this example does not feature the "Amagnetic" script signature of the earlier examples. This model has gained popularity and is highly sought after by collectors. Post Lot Text
