More about Patek Philippe 3796J Calatrava 3796 Manual Wind 18K Yellow Gold

This is an 18K yellow gold Patek Philippe Calatrava 3796D. The two-body solid case is polished, with a clou de Paris hobnail bezel, a brushed case back, gently curved lugs, and oxidized stick-baton hands. There is an outer track with minute divisions and a subsidiary small seconds dial at 6 o'clock. The black leather strap has a matching 18k Yellow Gold Buckle. It's water resistant to 30 meters.

The manual winding calibre 215 movement is rhodium plated with fausses cotes embellishment; it's stamped with the Seal of Geneva quality mark. It's constructed with 18 jewels, a shock absorber mechanism, a straight-line lever escapement, and a self-compensating flat balance spring. It has the patented Patek Philippe Gyromax balance that compensates for cold, heat, isochronism, and 5 positions. The dial, case, and movement are all signed.

The Calatrava line was first introduced in 1932 after the Stern brothers purchased the company. These are still Patek's signature models. They are extremely thin, with polished wide bezels or hobnail relief around the dials that give the impression of a fine gold coin.
