Catalogue Note

Patek Philippe launched Ref. 3970 in 1986 with a snap-on case back. Two years into production, Patek modified the design to a screw-down water-resistant type case back. Production of the model ceased in 2004. Ref. 3970 was created following the success of the exceptional and iconic ref. 2499. One main difference between the two models is the addition of the leap year indicator to the 3 o'clock subsidiary dial and 24-hour indicator to the 9 o'clock subsidiary dial.
