Patek Philippe 150th Anniversary Solid 18K Yellow Gold Officer's Calatrava 33mm Men's Watch Ref. 3960J W/Original Alligator Band in Wooden Display Box (Only 2000 Ever Made) - This magnificent timepiece was made by the world renowned watchmaker Patek Philippe, and was finely crafted of solid 18k yellow gold. This Officer's Calatrava watch was made to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of Patek Philippe, and is one of only 2000 ever made. Prior to 1989, Patek Philippe never ventured towards a military style model, but this changed in 1989 with the first-ever Officer's Calatrava Watch. This model (Ref. 3960) really stood out in the Calatrava line with screwed-in bars between the lugs instead of a springbar, a fancy crown, classy Breguet numerals and hands on a clean white dial, and the hinged caseback which called to mind classic pocket watches from the company's heritage. The stunning watch features: distinctive Officer's 33mm three part case constructed of solid platinum, snap-on caseback with engraved inscription protected by hinged dustcover, Turban style crown, Swiss handmade 18 jewel/215 calibre manual wind movement, porcelain white dial with black Breguet figures and subsidiary seconds subdial at 6 o'clock, original steel "Breguets" hands, original sapphire crystal, water resistance up to 2.5 atm, and original Patek Philippe brown alligator band with solid platinum buckle. The watch is in beautiful condition, and will come in a wooden display box. The watch will also come with archival paperwork from Patek Philippe with embossed seal. Reference number: 3960J, case number: 2.863.796, movement number: 768.84. The watch measures 9" in length.
