Lot Essay

A successor of the celebrated reference 3970 and virtual "grandchild" of Patek Philippe's legendary reference 2499, reference 5970 was introduced to the market at Baselworld in April 2005 and remained in production until about 2010. The model immediately enjoyed enormous popularity among collectors and was available in white gold or pink gold only until early 2008 when the production of these two versions ceased. Reference 5970 in yellow gold was in production only in 2008.

Reference 5970 is equipped with the movement based on a Lémania ébauche, heavily modified and finished by Patek Philippe and 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.

Fresh to market, factory sealed and as-new, this ref. 5970G is complete with all accessories and it represents one of the final 5970s in white gold ever made. Leaving the factory in early 2008, this watch sold by an American retailer in November 2008.
