Patek Philippe 3940J, Perpetual Calendar, The "X", Yellow Gold


This Patek Philippe 3940J distinguishes itself thanks to its unusual "X" leap year indicator at 3 o'clock, replacing the cross or empty space usually found there. It is one of only four known pieces to feature this, with two of those understood to be owned by Thierry Stern, the Honorary President and owner of Patek Philippe, and the other being delivered to a Patek Philippe retailer and friend of Stern's. Rare and elusive, this is the only of the four "X" 3940 watches to house a German dial, seemingly making this a unique piece.
