Not only am gonna be talking about Patek
Philippe, but in today’s terms, a smaller
Patek Philippe, but it’s not bad.
Stick around. I’m gonna talk about it.
Hey guys, welcome back to SwissWatchExpo.
I’m Jonathan. This is Taking Time and you
probably know by now my love-hate relationship
with the likes of Patek Philippe. I love,
you know, the likes of the Calatrava line and
their higher-end chronograph movements and stuff
like that. Don’t really, I’m not really a big fan
of their sports line and stuff like that. Anyways,
we’ve got something here that is just oozing
classic. We just got this in, this is the,
Excuse me, Patek 3998J. This is in yellow gold.
This is a 35-millimeter watch. Now, you usually
see me talking about larger watches. Well,
on this occasion, I like this because this is
the gold standard. No pun intended being a
gold watch of dress watches. Patek really
started out very, very strong whenever they came
out with this in 1989 and they ran it for almost
20 years, which is, you know, in the watch
industry, unless it’s like a really, really
popular watch, like the Rolex Submariner or the
AP Royal Oak like you don’t see that happening.
You’ll see the watch
and changed models and everything like that.
But this ran for almost 20 years, almost
completely untouched, which is just crazy
to me. And it’s got a workhorse movement, the
caliber 315SC which is an automatic movement,
but this is an example in a 35-millimeter case.
And whenever I say that it’s classic I think the
trend is going back to smaller watches and this
being a dress watch. It’s just gonna be like the
end-all-be-all-like staple in your collection.
That, I mean, you’re going out for a date night.
Doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman,
this is gonna be like the absolute perfect one
that is just gonna make the night go total bliss
anyways. What’s also rare is that we’ve got this
in with box and papers and I did a little bit of
research and we’ve got this at a ridiculous price
for having it with box and papers and the
condition that it’s in. You know, we’re just, I
don’t know why we’re posting it at this price, but
we are. Usually, it’s auctioning for well over.
But yeah, we’ve got this in stock. Ready
to go. I’d love to talk to you about it. So
do what you need to do. Get this on your wrist,
you know, like, subscribe. Give me a call.
