评论 [Review]
The Patek Philippe 3970 is divided into three specific ‘sequences’: the first sequence uses a push-back case with a diameter of 36 mm. This sequence is the least recognized model with less than 100 surviving ones; the second sequence uses solid spins The pendant case back is also from the appearance of this series, Patek Philippe began to launch a diamond-set version of 3971, which is very similar to the 3970 appearance, but uses a sapphire screw-in case back.
Patek Philippe has also received many orders for 3970’s transparent case back. The third sequence is 3970E, where the letter E is the acronym for French waterproofing, which means that the watch is waterproof. In view of the fact that the second series of 3970s has received many orders for custom transparent casebacks, the 3970E is sold with two styles of casebacks. In the Hong Kong auction of Antigoron on June 27 last year, a brand new 3970EJ was sold with a commission price of 570,000 yuan.
3970 has long been discontinued, and the subsequent model is the 5970, which has a bullish price all the way. In my opinion, whether it is 3970 or 5970, there is still room for second-hand price increases.
