  • Catalogue Essay

    The reference 3919 was released in 1985 and remained in production until 2006. It was available in all three gold metals and came with and without bracelets. One of the most recognizable characteristics was the hobnail bezel (Clou de Paris) featured on the Ateliers Réunis case, key code number 28. An intriguing design, this is no longer available on the current model. It is interesting to note that the original certificate is stamped by the retailer Orologeria Svizzera, Firenze, which was the Panerai retailer in Florence and therefore it would have been for a very special client that they would have obtain and sold a Patek Philippe wristwatch.

    Fresh to the market, the present model is in excellent overall condition and is an early model dating from 1986. This is a rare opportunity to own a modern classic that is now 33 years old and retains the freshness it did when it left the Patek Philippe factory.

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
