Exceedingly rare steel Patek Philippe ref. 3417 “Amagnetic” retailed by Gübelin. The dial of this extraordinary oversized steel Patek reference is enhanced not only by the exotic “Amagnetic” word at 12 o’clock , but also by its big subsidiary second featuring the prestigious retailer’s name.The movement is shielded from magnetism with a soft-iron inner case, designed to resist magnetic fields up to 450 oersteds. Oversized case, untouched dial. Definitely the emblem of the true understated elegance.
Available only in steel, reference 3417 was introduced in 1958 and it represents the first series-produced antimagnetic Patek Philippe. The oversized case was designed for maximum robustness with a screwdown, water-resistant caseback.
