Had to share. A shot of my 3970P silver dial beside my friend's recently acquired 3970 black dial baton marker, from this morning: And for TWAT-worthy discussion, a few interesting factoids. The 3970 was Patek's flagship perpetual calendar chronograph from 1986 to 2004, but relatively few were made in platinum. Even fewer were made with the black dial baton marker, which was standard for the white gold version. One other lesser known factoid that distinguishes these...
^^^ I should clarify - New York specifically. And a few other states where I'm on the waiting list of ADs. There are rumored to have been SD4000s to have popped up in Las Vegas but unsure if it was via ADs or secondary market resellers.
Bawhawhawhawhaw!Blame it on Rolex and their US AD delivery schedule! Frickin'A!Yes - officially no SD4000s in the US yet. I have even been keeping track of interesting deliveries, like the six that made it to Canada a week and a half ago. All made their way to the US grey market and sold above list.Guess I'm not that itchy to get the SD4000... But if this Belli guy keeps posting more pics I may start listening to 'dem Asian and European dealers...

Oh lookie. Helped a friend acquire this beauty earlier today. Black dial baton marker perpetual calendar chronograph in platinum from Patek Philippe. Rare and despite its black dial and multiple subdials it's very legible because of the lovely proportions and clean layout of the 3970. Of course GoDSSDzilla just had to make his way into the picture.
 I tend to dress "towards the mean" when I go on interviews where I'm being explicitly judged as a candidate for a job (versus, say, interviews for TV or public speaking engagements).  Solid colored suits, shirts; socks on the conservative side.  I would still wear my Corthay Arcas but the ones in burgundy (close to black).  I would wear my Nautilus as it tends to fly under the radar for most.  Funny enough given the industry circles in which I move there are, I suppose,...
