The prices quoted on the Patek website run rather notoriously low. By the time your 3940 has gone through the full maintenance regime that they will recommend, it’s gonna cost right in the neighborhood of $3000.
in New York for service. For a 3940 they would take 16 to 22 weeks to fully service and maintain the watch. It’s a lot of work and from what they tell me, there are only a very few people that can service one of their perpetual calendars. The cost of servicing a 3940 through Patek is quite expensive
While I am certainly happy that the watch went for huge money ( which will serve a good cause) I find the watch itself to be a major “Yawn”. Doesn’t look like a Patek. Doesn’t look like much of anything other than “Busy”. I don’t “ get it”.
