1986 Stainless Steel Patek Philippe Ellipse (Ref. 3931) "Beyer" Cosigned Dial W/ Archive
There is the saying that “You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation.” and we think this couldn't be truer with this stainless steel Elipse Ref. 3931. Some of the rarest and most sought after Patek Philippe watches were manufactured in stainless steel, this is because the vast majority of Patek watches are produced in precious metals, excluding the Nautilus of course.
This Ref. 3931 remains fully original and features a beautiful and untouched white porcelain dial, that is cosigned with the retailer Beyer. Cosigned dials are some of the most collectible dial variants for vintage watches, as their production and availability are very scarce. This watch also includes its original strap and buckle, and comes complete with an "Extract From The Archive". This watch is powered by the impressive Patek E23-C inhouse quartz movement.
This Patek is classic, timeless, and also versatile. Having a traditional dress watch appearance with the stainless steel case makes this watch universal within your wardrobe, whether it be paired with a tuxedo or casual attire.
