    The reference 5070 was introduced into the market in 2003, initially available in yellow gold, then white and pink gold, and also white gold with diamonds. At the heart of the 5070 is the calibre CH 27-70 manually wound "Nouvelle Lemania" base movement exclusive executed for Patek Philippe.
    To the best of our knowledge, production of the 5070 is limited to 1,000 pieces for each precious metal. The yellow gold version is no longer in production (please see Lot. 3035).
