PATEK PHILIPPE WHITE GOLD HOBNAIL CALATRAVA WRISTWATCH REF. 3796D
The ref. 3796 was launched in 1982 to replace the legendary ref. 96 and stayed in the line until 1999. While the ref. 3796 by itself was a staple in the time only offering at the time, the ref. 3796D was variant that was rarely seen especially in white gold. The letter ‘D’ denotes ‘Décor’ which describes the the clous-de Paris or hobnail bezel which was to become a signature look for the Calatrava with the arrival of ref. 3919 in 1985. The beautifully crafted case by Atelier Réunis in Geneva of this 3796D remains as exquisite as when it was first crafted. Never before seen by Collectability, this white gold Ref. 3796GD is ready to be a classic and important addition to your collection, complete with original Certificate of Origin.
