Perpetual Calendar Chrono "Rose Gold"
Rare "Transitional 3 Series"
We are extremely proud to offer such a rare & important complication, which epitomises the very best of Patek Philippe. The 3970E is a 'Grand Complication' of the highest order, a manually-wound perpetual calendar with chronograph. Closer inspection of our particular example reveals that this rose gold 3970E, (retailed in December 1992) is no regular 3rd series. Infact it belongs to a very small group of early production 3rd series that still featured 2nd series characteristics. So what we have is a rare cross-over model fitted with the beautiful opaline dial (not silvered like regular 3rd series), feuille hands and rectangular batons of the earlier era 3970's, presented in the the upgraded case that offered better water-resistance and the additional solid rose gold case back.
This beautiful 90's grand comp is offered as a complete set, including its polished wood Patek box, Patek certificate, instruction manual, setting stylus, burgundy wallet and Extract from the Patek Archive confirming every important detail.
