Patek Philippe: A favourite from my collection 😍

I strongly prefer the 3970 over the 5970 because of its -for my eyes - Mich better dials design. Even on my big wrists the 3970 is perfectly wearable. The best perpetual calendar chrono from PP so far…of course I’ve taken 2499 out of competition as it’s unobtainable. 2499 is a class of its own 😄

I´m curious to see it on my wrist and how large it really is, e.g. compared to the new Cartier Tank Must w
