Reference 3979 was produced in 1995 and only in yellow gold. It is interesting to note that its self-winding movement, caliber R 27 PS, consists of 342 parts.
The design of reference 3979 was inspired by an earlier minute repeating wristwatch by Patek Philippe, ref. 2524/1 from 1957, which is illustrated in Huber & Banbery's Patek Philippe Wristwatches, Second Edition, 1998, p.319, pl.447a-c.
For an illustration of a reference 3979 and a description of the movement, see op.cit. p.320, pl.478a-c.
