PATEK PHILIPPE YELLOW GOLD MINUTE REPEATING WRISTWATCH, REF. 3979J
Produced from 1989 – 2002, less than 100 pieces were made in total in yellow, rose, white gold as well as platinum. To date, approximately 29 yellow gold, three white gold and five platinum have appeared on the market. It is interesting to note that the presently offered example is movement number 1’904’002 meaning this is the third example made and one of the earliest examples of a ref. 3979 to exist. Movement 1’904,000 was never sold and is at the Patek Philippe Museum in Geneva.
