Interestingly the 3974 is the one model that Reginald ‘Pete’ Fullerton (the grandson of Henry Graves – see following lot no.345) was unable to secure. Having determined to assemble a collection showcasing the finest example of each and every Patek Philippe perpetual calendar ever made, Fullerton wrote to Patek Philippe on August 29th, 1988:
“I noticed a picture of a wristwatch to be made in 1988 and numbered 3974. Obviously you are holding out on me. What can you tell me about this little gem? The ghost of Henry Graves, Jr. tells me to look into this matter.”
