  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2015, the Patek Philippe reference 5370 split-seconds chronograph is considered by many as being one of the most exciting and desirable watches to have left the workshops of the famed Geneva based manufacture in recent years.

    The beautiful black enamel dial fitted with Breguet numerals is a combination that is and complimented by a 41mm platinum case that ticks all the right notes for the most astute collectors. The movement has nothing to shy from the beauty of the dial. Fully developed in-house, the calibre CHR 29-535 PS features a brand-new isolator that uncouples the split-seconds wheel from the chronograph wheel thus eliminating friction. Furthermore, the brand has developed a system allowing the chronograph and split-seconds hands to perfectly align and ending it with a spectacular finished, with components that have the highest Swiss standard finishing.

    Made in extremely low numbers, the reference 5370 is a resolutely modern watch but with hints of vintage in its design. A proud heir to Patek Philippe’s prestigious chronographs of the past the present reference is set to become one of the brand’s icons of the future. The present watch was brand new and double sealed originally. It was only unsealed on August, 16 2023 in front of Phillips' in-house counsel for the purpose of shipping the timepiece. It is furthermore offered as a "full set" and is accompanied by its Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated December 18, 2015, additional caseback, hang tag, slip case, portfolio photograph, presentation box and outer packaging.
