  • Catalogue Essay

    In production from 2007 until 2010, reference 5971 is the diamond-set version of reference 5970 - the very last perpetual calendar chronograph wristwatch series to use a Lemania 2310 based movement before the introduction of reference 5270.

    Due to its generous and modern case proportions, this reference is a favorite among the watch community, and has increased in popularity and collectability over time. The bezel is notably set with top-grade diamonds, totaling approximately 4.37 carats. The black dial is further enhanced by diamond-set numerals.

    The watch is furthermore preserved in excellent condition, benefitting from the presence of its original certificate, additional numbered case back, setting pin and wallet.

  • 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.
