This vintage Patek Philippe Ref# 3979J is from 1989. Accompanied with a certificate of origin, box and second case back. This example is in excellent condition with extremely crisp hallmarks.

The 3979J minute repeater automatic watch, features a 33.4 mm case. This is a yellow example with white porcelain dial and yellow gold buckle. Functions include hours, minutes, seconds and minute repeater.

The reference 3979 represents the first automatic minute repeating wristwatch produced by Patek Philippe. Launched as the successor of reference 2524/1. The vast majority was cased in yellow gold. Originally made to celebrate the company's 150th anniversary in 1989, production of this model continued subsequently, until it was discontinued in 2002. The minute repeating mechanism uses 'Cathedral gongs', so called because their long length created a deeper sound and particularly long reverberation. The length of the gong in a standard repeating mechanism corresponds to almost precisely one turn in the movement whereas those of the 'Cathedral' mechanism exceed that length, as a result a much richer and fuller timbre is achieved for this exceptional piece.
