Lot Essay

Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in 2000 and its subsequent sale on April 3rd of the same year. Further accompanied by a Patek Philippe presentation box, Patek Philippe leather envelope, product literature and outer packaging.

Of all the color and dial variations produced for this reference 5070, the present model is certainly the most eye-catching. Its bold aesthetic is noticeable by its large yellow gold case and applied gold numerals that shine amidst the deep black dial. After the yellow gold production came the white gold, pink gold and finally platinum. The yellow gold production was discontinued in 2003.

To the best of our knowledge the present watch has never before been offered in public and is furthermore offered in superb condition with crisp hallmarks to the case.
