Patek Philippe Calatrava ref. 3796
Patek Philippe Calatrava 18K yellow gold wristwatch reference 3796 from 1983. Comes with Extract from the Archives.
Patek Philippe Calatrava is the very essence of the prestigious dress watch. The Calatrava takes its name from the ornate Calatrava cross, the cruciform symbol first used on the marching banners of the Calatrava knights who defended the Calatrava fortress against the Moors in 1158. The Patek Philippe Calatrava Reference 96 was in production for over 40 years (1932 – 1973), a testament to its incredible success and popularity. Throughout that time, multiple notable variations were developed: central seconds, small seconds, no seconds, Breguet numerals, steel case, sector dial … What really set the Patek Philippe Calatrava Reference 96 apart, however, was its minimalist, modern dial design, which is still admired & appreciated by watch lovers around the world. The Patek Philippe 3796 we offer you is the 1980s reincarnation of the classic Ref. 96 Calatrava and remained in production until 1999. This reference was created to represent the original Ref. 96 as close as possible, retaining the classic 31 mm case size as well as the tapered lugs of the original.
18K yellow gold case (31mm). Velvet-finish silvered dial with 18K yellow gold sword-shaped indexes & 18K yellow gold hands. Dot minute track. Subsidiary seconds hand. Manual winding cal. 215PS. Fitted to a black leather strap with the 18K yellow gold PP buckle. This watch has been fully serviced & comes with Extract from the Archives. Covered by our 2-year warranty certificate.
