The present lot is fresh to the market. Reference 5070 was the first chronograph-only reference produced by Patek Philippe since the reference 1463 was discontinued in the late 1960’s. The reference was introduced in 1998 in yellow gold only, then in white gold in 2001, followed by pink gold in 2003. From 2008, the reference was produced only in platinum. It is thought that for each metal or gold colour, the production ceased after reaching 1000 pieces.
