  • Patek Philippe. Ref. 5970P-001

    Circa: 2009

    Case Material: Platinum
    Diameter: 40mm
    Bracelet/Strap Size: 9 inches
    Dial: Black, baton numerals, three subsidiary dials, date
    Movement: Manual, Cal. CH 27-70 Q, stamped with the Geneva seal, 24 jewels
    Functions: Perpetual calendar, chronograph
    Accessories: Patek Philippe leather envelope, product literature, certificate of origin confirming date of sale on May 30, 2009, additional solid case back, setting pin, tie-tag, Patek Philippe presentation slipcase, and Patek Philippe presentation box

    Reference 5970 was introduced to the market at the Basel Fair in April 2005 and replaced the celebrated reference 3970. The model immediately enjoyed great popularity amongst collectors and was available in white gold or pink gold only until 2007 when the production of these two versions ceased. Reference 5970 in yellow gold was in production only in 2008. Since 2008, the model was available exclusively in platinum.

    At the 2011 Basel Fair, the reference 5970 was replaced by the smaller reference 5270 which additionally has a day/night indication on the dial, as well as a separate leap year cycle and is equipped with the in-house caliber CH 29-535 PS Q.

    Reference 5970 is the last perpetual calendar chronograph of the company featuring the Geneva seal on the movement as Patek Philippe began stamping their movements with the Patek Philippe Seal from mid-2009 as a new quality benchmark for its mechanical timepieces. Despite having been manufactured in recent years, reference 5970 is already today considered a great classic and will not only provide enormous pleasure on its future owner's wrist, but will also be a pillar in any collection focusing on Patek Philippe's history of complicated wristwatches.

    The watch presently offered is single-sealed in its original plastic Patek Philippe sleeve.
