  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe launched the reference 3800 in 1981 with a smaller case dimension measuring 37mm to cater towards a wider unisex audience.

    The reference 3800 bear much of the same aesthetics as the 3700 however an additional seconds hand has been applied. First launched in stainless steel, the reference was available in various case and dial configurations with some more common and some rarer.

    The present example encased in platinum fitted with a blue ribbed diamond indexed dial is a rare variant of the reference and presented in absolute excellent overall condition with very minimal signs of use and wear and is further complete with the original certificate and an Extract from the Archives issued by Patek Philippe confirming its year of manufacture in 1995, fitted with a 3rd series cal. 330 SC.

Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand.
