Patek Philippe, Reference 3940 and Reference 3941 This reference is launched in1985. When Patek Philippe first launched this new series of watches, Ref. 3940 was the model bearing a metallic snap-on case-back, while Ref. 3941 was equipped with a screwed sapphire crystal back. Very soon, the reference number of this model was standardised to Ref. 3940, sold either with one or two screwed backs; one of these backs could be a screwed metallic case-back, while the second, (non-compulsory), a screwed sapphire crystal case-back. In consequence, very few examples bear the Ref. 3941. Bibliography Huber, Martin, & Banbery, Alan, Patek Philippe Wristwatches, 1998, pp. 292-294.
