Footnotes

  • The reference 3970 was inspired by the iconic reference 2499 and produced in 4 series after its launch in 1986. Originally it was fitted with a snap on case back. Around 1988, the model was modified to a water-resistant version with screw back, such as the present example. In 2004, the reference 3970 was replaced by reference 5970.
