Formalising the Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 3960 as an Officer's watch is a solid, polished, hunter-style hinged case back, which opens to reveal a second, engraved caseback celebrating the anniversary. Underneath is the manual-wound 215 movement comprised of 130 parts and offering a power reserve of 44 hours. In total, two thousand examples were made in yellow gold, 150 in white gold, and 50 in platinum.
In 1989, Patek Philippe celebrated its 150th anniversary and released a number of commemorative watches to mark the occasion. Included among these exceptional timepieces was the Ref. 3960, the first ever Officer's watch in the Calatrava collection. While the design followed the basic principles of the Calatrava line, this model stood out from the crowd with its straight-lugs, gold screwed bars (instead of spring-bars), turban-style crown, and rare enamel dial with painted Breguet numerals, blued steel hands and subsidiary seconds dial. The case measures 33mm in diameter and 8mm in height, despite the presence of a double caseback.
