Coming with the original box, Patek leather etui, description booklet and a letter from the PATEK Archive - 1987.

This is super rare 3971 has got a SNAP sapphire back. This early watch model was manufactured only for a very short time and was soon replaced by the 3970 with a screw down back. Only very few pieces were delivered with this option.
This is a high-end collectors grand complication and of course a great investment piece.

THE legendary PATEK complication (perpetual calendar with chronograph) since the late 1940s with the first sapphire back.

1 year warranty from the GmbH.
