Description:

PATEK PHILIPPE CALATRAVA REF. 3466 TOBACCO DIAL

Reference 3466 is a rare model manufactured by Patek Philippe for approximately ten years, from the early 1960s to the early 1970s. Made exclusively in stainless steel, it was marketed by Patek Philippe as a sportier alternative to the Calatrava models. This watch features a screw-down caseback, offering greater water resistance compared to other Calatrava models with snap backs. Additionally, the Ref. 3466 is powered by an automatic caliber, eliminating the need for manual winding and making it more suitable for an active lifestyle. Today, this watch is highly sought after by collectors due to its short production run and its 35mm case size, which is particularly appreciated by modern collectors.

The present Patek Philippe Calatrava ref. 3466 is an excellent example of this rare reference. Its overall condition is great, retaining the original factory case dimensions with no extensive polishing over the years. The most attractive feature of this watch is undoubtedly the dial, which has developed a captivating “tobacco” hue over time, making this watch exceptionally special and almost unique. The rich yellowish patina adds an exclusive touch, setting it apart from other similar examples. The 27-460 movement is in good working order and is very well preserved. The watch comes with an original Patek Philippe strap and matching buckle. Accompanied by a Patek Philippe extract from the archives, it confirms that the watch was produced in 1965 and sold in 1968.
