  • Catalogue Essay

    Collectors consider the Patek Philippe reference 5370 split seconds chronograph 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, Breguet numerals as well as a very well balanced case design tick all the right notes. The movement has nothing to shy from the beauty of the dial. Fully developed inhouse, caliber 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.

    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 is preserved in unworn condition and is accompanied by its Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin signed Hausmann Condotti and dated 20th November 2017, leather portfolio, photo, product literature, leather folio, hangtag and second caseback.

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.
