Grail has arrived!! 3940R perpetual calendar

I've been a reader of the forum since 2011 and am very excited to make my first post- pics of my new 3940 R in rose gold!!!!!!! The patek perpetual calendar, particularly in rose gold, has always held major grail status for me- something mythical among watchmaking in my eyes.

Upon unboxing it, the watch has exceeded all my expectations! The rose color is unique and subtly changes appearance throughout the day. The size feels excellent in rotation with my other daytonas and rolexes

After chatting with a Patek historian, i was surprised to learn only 1,500 of the 3940 were produced in rose gold. I was drawn to the strong Patek DNA in this watch, not only in its aesthetics and mythology, but also in the fact that the 3940 was daily wearer of Mr. Stern himself! Thanks for reading and now the obligatory wristshots !!!!

Yes yes yes!!! Amazing choice and reference and size!

Now...blow a grand on 5 bespoke Camille four-net straps. Trust me - it's worth it.

PS: Is the historian Mr. Reardon? If so, tell him I said hi :)

yes indeed i am friendly with him...... thanks for the tip regarding the straps they look excellent! i purchased a number of straps from ABP paris about ten years ago for some of my other watches back when they were making "special tanning" alligator....... the camille looks superior thank you very much!

Congrats. I had the yellow gold version for a while.

And I sold it.

Because I'm an idiot.

Don't worry, I'm sure you'll get a better one in the future. Like me and my 3970 :)
