The Patek Philippe reference 3970 is considered Patek Philippe's most important watch of the 1990s. Many watch collectors are inspired by the great aesthetics and mechanical complexity of that wristwatch. The 3970 was made in white, yellow, rose gold, and platinum. Reference 3970 is the successor to 2499 and 1518. the current watch is from 2004 and has a platinum case. It is the fourth series of reference 3970. The official name is 3970E. "e" stands for "etanche" (water-resistant in French) and refers to the screw-down case back introduced with the second series of the 3970. the water-resistance of the case has been improved over the first series, which had a snap-in case back. Ref. 3970 is a perpetual calendar and a chronograph in one wristwatch. In addition, it has a moon phase display. The driving force is Patek Philippe's in-house caliber ch 27-70 q. "ch" stands for the chronograph complication and "q" for the perpetual calendar (quantième perpétuel). It is an extremely reliable movement used for all versions of the reference 3970. The white dial is very balanced and clear, although a great deal of information is displayed on it. The counter at 3 o'clock combines the leap year indicator and the 30-minute chronograph counter. At 9 o'clock is the subsecond and 24-hour (or day-night) display. The moon phases and date are visible in the counter at 6 o'clock. Finally, the day of the week and month are displayed in two windows at 12 o'clock. The dial surface has been kept absolutely perfect and clean. The strap is black-colored crocodile leather and the deplorant clasp is platinum. comes with original box and warranty of the time with second case back, regulating nib, tag, leather warranty holder, and all booklets and pamphlets. A watch in crazy condition, this Patek Philippe 3970 has all the characteristics of a collector's watch.
