This example of Patek Philippe's landmark reference 3939 is one of the true stars within this family. In fact, unknown within the collector's community and fully confirmed by the Certificate from Patek Philippe, the present watch can only be regarded as a one-of-a-kind masterpiece and therefore is an important addition to any distinguished watch collection. In over 30 years of international auctions and throughout literature, no other reference 3939 fitted with such a unusual mother-of-pearl dial with Breguet numerals has ever been shown, offered, or been mentioned on the market. Being part of the very last production of this reference, one must conclude that it was a special order executed according to the precise ideas of one of the firm's most important and demanding collectors.
One of the most elegant and subtle of the Patek Philippe grand complication timepieces, reference 3939 unites the sonorous charms of a two-gong minute repeater with the gravity-defying precision of a tourbillon escapement. In keeping with its eternal style, reference 3939 ignores the contemporary trend for larger cases, measuring 33 mm. in diameter, an achievement for such a technically sophisticated timepiece.
Offered in unused condition we are delighted to present this extrodinary watch for sale.
