Description
Here is the watch that defines "classic", in the pairing of the perpetual calendar and chronograph complications. Every detail of the 3970 is perfect. From the design, workmanship, production and finishing, and the overall aesthetic of the watch - it's just awesome. There was a discussion on a watch forum recently, where the question was posed: what makes a Patek Philippe expensive? You need not look any further for the answer than a reference 3970. The time, the skill and the caring that goes into the production of one of these wristwatches must be immense.

Case is solid 18k white gold with dimensions of 36mm diameter by 13mm thick. Sapphire front and display back crystals. "Stepped" lugs. Pump style round chronograph pushers. Oversized winding crown.

Dial is silver with white gold leaf style hands. The perpetual calendar day and month are displayed in apertures below 12 o'clock; the 3 o'clock subdial displays 30 minute chronograph totalizer and leap year indicator; the 6 o'clock subdial displays the date and moonphase; 9 o'clock indicator displays constant seconds and 24 hours time.

Beating inside is the outstanding and prestigious Patek Philippe Caliber CH 27 70 Q with the Geneva Seal proudly stamped on its balance bridge. Technical details: 24 jewels, 353 individual parts; 60 hour maximum power reserve, Gyromax balance beating at 18,000 beats per hour. Movement provides day, date, month, moonphase, leap year, 24 hour indication and chronograph, in addition to the normal 12 hour time.

Strap is a medium brown crocodile with 18k white gold deployant clasp. Watch is as new and will be delivered with second caseback, stylus, box and papers.
