Patek Philippe Genève, Movement No. 771125, Case No. 2848484, Ref. 3940, Cal. 240Q, 36 mm, circa 1995
A gentleman's exquisite automatic Geneva wristwatch with perpetual calendar, leap year indicator and moon phase - with Patek Philippe extract from the archives Case: 18k gold, push back. Dial: silvered. Movm.: 22k gold microrotor movement, Geneva quality hallmark, Gyromax balance.
Reference 3940 was originally produced in 1986 in yellow gold only - production was discontinued in April 2007. No. 1 of the series was dedicated to Theodor Beyer and can be viewed today at the Museum of Time Measurement in Zurich. Number 3940 was replaced by references 5140 and 5327. It remains, however, a particular favourite for all lovers of Patek timepieces and is also best liked by Philippe Stern, who is the father of current Patek Philippe CEO Thierry Stern. The calibre 240-Q with its 22K microrotor in a 36 mm case is forever a classic and its perpetual calendar is still state-of-the-art.
