  • Catalogue Essay

    The serially-produced perpetual calendar chronograph is one of Patek Philippe's most historical and iconic models to date. Its roots date back to 1941 with the creation of reference 1518. Today, the Genevan manufacture continues the tradition by producing an exclusive and updated take on the complicated wristwatch. Reference 5270 was first introduced in 2011 and is the largest perpetual calendar chronograph ever made by Patek Philippe. The successor to reference 5970, reference 5270 most notably displays the Patek Philippe seal.

    The present watch, sold in 2016, is cased in pink gold and accompanied by all its original accessories such as certificate of origin, additional case back, setting pin, product literature and presentation box. Launched in 2015, the pink gold reference 5270 notably displayed a silvered dial, and removed the "chin" detail seen on white gold versions.

  • Artist Biography

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
