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

This is a 1988 18K yellow gold Patek Philippe Calatrava 3796J. It has an alligator leather strap with a gold tang buckle, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. The 30mm two-body solid case clou de Paris hobnail bezel, and gently curved lugs, are polished. It has a solid brushed case back, gold dauphine sword hands, and applied "boat-shaped" gold baton hour indices. There is a gold dot outer track with minute divisions and a subsidiary small seconds dial at 6 o'clock with black markers and a gold indicator hand. It's water resistant to 30 meters/100 feet, it has a 44-hour power reserve at full winding, and the 7mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.

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, 130 components, a shock absorber mechanism, a straight-line lever escapement, and a Spiromax self-compensating flat balance spring. It has the patented Patek Philippe Gyromax balance that compensates for cold, heat, isochronism, and 5 positions. The mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vph (4 Hz).

This Patek Philippe Calatrava 3820J is extremely thin, with polished hobnail relief around the dials that give the impression of a fine gold coin. It was introduced in the 1980's.
