Patek Philippe has diversified the look of the Calatrava right from the start. Within a decade of introducing the Ref. 96, they were already experimenting with fancy cases and lugs, unusual dials, and anti-magnetic “tool watches”. But one style they never ventured towards was a military model.
All this changed in 1989: To celebrate their 150th anniversary, Patek Philippe released a set of retro-styled models, including Ref. 3960, the first-ever Calatrava Officer's Watch. Ref. 3960 really stood out in the Calatrava line with screwed-in bars between the lugs instead of a springbar, a fancy crown, and classy Breguet numerals and hands on a clean white dial. But the sweetest feature was the hinged caseback which called to mind classic pocket watches from the Geneva company’s heritage.- Watch Specifications -
