Free Worldwide Insured Shipping with FedEx / Authenticity Guaranteed / 14-days Inspection Period / 1-year Warranty

Extremely rare and unusual timepiece - original Patek Philippe "officer's watch" manufactured and delivered during the first world war. It features very special half-open case made of 18k gold with oversize bezel part protecting crystal and dial, and fancy lugs with screw-in bars. Fancy crown and beautiful sector dial with Breguet numerals complete unique design of the watch.

Back in the beginning of the century Patek Philippe was experimenting with shapes and designs like this, to develop one of the most recognized watches - Calatrava Ref.96. Later in 1989, commemorating the 150th anniversary Patek Philippe introduced "Officer's watch" Ref.3960 inspired exactly by philosophy of WWI watches like this. A truly investment grade timepiece is accompanied by original Patek Philippe buckle and extract from Patek’s archive.

Professionally serviced in September 2016. The watch comes with generic strap, vintage 18k solid gold Patek Philippe buckle, and extract of archives. Technical warranty: 1 year.
