  • 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.

Ref. 5070G-001
It is no secret that Patek's reference 5070 chronograph is a favourite of ours here at Perpetual, the dramatically stepped case and symmetrical subdials refer to some of the great chronographs of the 1940's whilst the oversized case and cleverly sculpted case back keep the proportions decidedly modern and comfortable. A brushed opaline dial with black gold hands and markers provide exceptional legibility (another reminder of the golden era of 'instrument' style wristwatches) and a historic, Lemania based, chronograph calibre beats inside. Presented with the original certificate, wallet and polished wooden box.
