PATEK PHILIPPE MANUAL SKELETON ELLIPSE REF. 3880J
Just back from a complete service at Patek Philippe in Geneva, this ref. 3880J skeleton Ellipse wristwatch is ready to wear in all its crispness. Although Patek fully serviced it, they will not issue an archive for this example since the inside of the case is not numbered. The asking price reflects that the fact this beautiful example will not be issued an archive. Look closely at the details on the movement and you will see the fine art of engraving at its fullest. Only a handful of these watches could be made annually and it is believed that a maximum of a few hundred were produced from the entire production run from 1980 through the late 1990s. Today, less than 30 examples of the ref. 3880 are known to exist.
