    With Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated 12 December 2007, leather wallet, slip case, fitted presentation box and outer packaging.

    Reference 5070 was the first chronograph-only reference produced by Patek Philippe since the reference 1463 was discontinued in the late 1960's. It was introduced in 1998 in yellow gold only, then beginning in 2001 in white gold, in 2003 pink gold and since 2008 it has only been produced in platinum. It is thought that for each version color that production ceased after reaching 1000 pieces.

    To the best of our knowledge, this watch is fresh to the market.

    For another example of the Reference 5070 in pink gold, please see Lot 2679 in this sale.
