Arguably the last true “legacy model” made by Patek Philippe, reference 3796 was introduced in 1982 in lieu of the discontinued ref. 96, the frst and original Calatrava. The two models look exactly identical when on the wrist. The minor diferences are the sapphire glass, the new calibre of reference 3796 and the caseback which is now waterproof and with a small fap for easier opening. The present example not only is preserved in absolutely mint condition, but it furthermore is dressed in the famboyantly elegant “PoP” - pink on pink confguration, marrying a pink case and a pink dial.
