"Officier" Ref. 3960
The celebrated "Officier" model was made to commemorate Patek Philippe's 150th Anniversary in April 1989. Reference 3960s design was influenced by the first wristwatches of the early 20th century with a rounded bezel and features an officer-style case back that, when opened, reveals the 150th anniversary engraving and movement number. It was available in a limited edition of 2000 pieces in yellow gold, 150 pieces in white gold and 50 pieces in platinum.
