I always thought of the 3940 and the 3970 as siblings, complementing each other. Same basic style and era but differently executed. Both have a given place in a diverse Patek collection. You could argue though, in the name of diversity, one of them should get another strap...

Will you go for the 5970 as well? Or the 5004?

Maybe get some Patek straps with the quick release pins

In different and you can switch around as you like. (Iā€™m only guessing they are the same size between the lugs?)

I have the quick release pins but unfortunately the PC is 19 whereas the PPC is 20

 By: VintageCollector : September 8th, 2019-10:53
But I really should get a few straps anyway.

Ah, sorry.

Switching straps is a lot of fun as you probably already know. However this color is really a great match for both pieces.

Meant PCC, not PPC of course [nt]

Beautiful Duo :-)

I think both pieces are classic. I would suggest having the 3940 to have a small grain (Flank) dark leather strap. The current 3970 strap looks great.

I've also been thinking about mixing it up with my straps and favor a more casual look. I have a blue Hodinkee shell cordovan strap on my 5040J, which plays nicely off the moon disc and dresses it down a bit, and a very casual medium brown calfskin strap ...
