Lot Essay

Consigned by an important private collector, the present reference 3970E from the fourth series is distinguished by its excellent overall condition and the presence of the original accessories. The combination of the white gold case and the silvered dial render this model a particularly attractive and desirable variant. To the best of our knowledge, the present example has never been offered in public before.

Reference 3970
The Patek Philippe Ref. 3970 was the successor to the Ref. 2499, arguably the greatest perpetual calendar wristwatch produced by any company. The Ref. 3970 remained in production until 2004 and is broken down into four series, each slightly different than the other. The present example is a fourth series reference and it is believed that about 2,000 pieces were made in this series.
