PATEK PHILIPPE GOLD AND BLUE ENAMEL MANUAL SKELETON REF. 3885J
Patek Philippe skeleton watches are the ultimate form of transparency in watchmaking — there is nothing to hide! Every component that can be made from gold is gold. Every square millimeter is cut and decorated by hand. Even the escapement is presented in an aesthetically pleasing way. With a traditional Patek Philippe movement, typically only the watchmaker can enjoy the hidden pleasure of hand finished parts, especially in solid back watches. With a skeleton timepiece, everything is on view. This ref. 3885 features a translucent blue enamel that surrounds the skeleton caliber 177, a masterpiece of ‘vintage modern’ watchmaking.
This example is accompanied by its original box as well as its original Certificate of Origin.
