If you see the 2nd photo I posted above, the open case back shows 21 jewels. Ref 3697.
For the limited edition ones, they have a solid case back with Breguet engraved portrait.

As far as I could remember 3697 was made around 1996 for the Hong Kong market to commemorate the 1997 handover of Hong Kong from Britain to China. Two hundred pieces were made in yellow gold.  White gold versions were also produced, although I am unsure about the number, and 75 were made in platinum with a solid engraved back.
The model which was produced in 1997 to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Abraham Louis Breguet is 1747.

Thanks for the information. The yellow gold version comes with solid case back or open case back for the 1996 Hong Kong edition? [nt]

Do you know what material is used for the dial?

3697 and 3690

Dial is silvered gold. The limited BA and BB models come with display back (3697). Regular production models In BA, BR, and BB have solid case back (3690). Attached is an old pic of my 3690BR.

What a knowledgeable community we have! Thanks, Gentlemen! [nt]

Thanks, great information. I have been offered the 3697.

The watch doesn't come with paper, only a green breguet box and an invoice from the original purchase from an AD in Singapore, according to the seller.

Further info on 3697

Just dug up my computer files. 3697 BA/BR/BB (200 pieces each) and 3690 PT (75 pieces) were made simply for the Hong Kong market, and not to commemorate the 1997 handover as I have wrongly stated earlier.
Another reference 3999 BA (97 pieces) were made in 1997 for the Hong Kong market to commemorate the handover.

Thanks. Interesting to know. Surprisingly the local AD in Singapore from them to sell locally. [nt]
