An 18k Rose Gold Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Gents Wristwatch, opaline silver dial with applied hour markers, 30 minute recorder and leap year indicator at 3 0'clock, date sub-dial and moonphase aperture at 6 0'clock, small seconds and 24 hour sub-dial at 9 0'clock, day and month apertures at 12 0'clock, a fixed 18k rose gold bezel, an original navy blue leather strap with an original 18k rose gold pin buckle, sapphire glass, exhibition caseback, additional 18k rose gold caseback, manual wind movement, in excellent condition, comes complete with a Patek Philippe box and Papers Dated December 1992.

N.B. Since its initial introduction in 1986 to its end in 2004, there have been 3 series of the 3970:

First series:
An estimated run of only 100 watches, all in 18k yellow gold. It featured leaf shaped hands, applied hour markers, sub-dials that were slightly off colour and a snap caseback. This series is considered extremely rare.

Second series:
Produced approximately between 1987 to 1990, there are two variations to this series; The first variation visually look similar to the first series, although the sub-dial were now textured as opposed to a different colour. The main difference was the solid screw caseback, making the watch water resistant. It was later on, through the request of clients, that a second variation with a sapphire exhibition screw caseback was made. These are also considered very rare.

Third series:
Manufactured between 1991 and 2004, the 3970 now came with straight shaped hands, with silver, black and diamond variation dials. It also comes with both a solid and exhibition sapphire caseback. This model reference also includes an E for etanche or water resistant.

The watch displayed here is a third series timepiece and would make an excellent addition to ones collection.
