PATEK PHILIPPE SET OF FOUR 3970’s WITH SPECIAL DIALS 18K AND PLATINUM
TO BE SOLD AS SET ONLY!!!
We are proud to present this unique set of Patek Philippe 3970 perpetual calendar chronograph wristwatches. The set is comprised of four watches, one in each metal that the 3970 was produced in: 18k yellow gold, 18k rose gold, 18k white gold and platinum. In addition, each watch has a special diamond dial.
Patek Philippe created this set of second series 3970s for an important Asian collector. Remarkably, Patek took the customer’s order for the special dials at a time when bespoke Patek watches were unheard of.
As wristwatches, the 3970s have a special place in Patek’s history. This set is the most important set of 3970s in existence.
The 3970 case is 36mm in diameter and 13mm thick. Sapphire crystal. Solid case back. “Stepped” lugs. Pump style round chronograph pushers and large winding crown. If there were a perfect watch case, it would be the 3970 case which, apart from the stepped lugs, has no embellishments, perfect proportions and perfect lines.
In this set, the platinum watch features a very rare salmon diamond markers dial, white gold watch has grey diamond markers dial, rose gold watch has black diamond markers dial and yellow gold watch has silver diamond markers dial. The dials share timekeeping and calendar indicators per the usual 3970 layout: 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 hour time.
Beating inside the 3970s 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.
All watches have crocodile Patek Philippe straps with Patek buckles matching the metal of each case.
