  • Catalogue Essay

    With an illustrious heritage in manufacturing some of the most revered chronograph wristwatches in history, Patek Philippe was once again in the spotlight in 2010 when they introduced the ref. 5170, featuring the firm’s very first in-house chronograph caliber CH 29-535 PS. Replacing its former ref. 5070 (fitted with the firm’s last Lemania based caliber CH 27-70), the ref. 5170 features a Calatrava style case measuring a comfortable 39.5mm diameter compared to its previous reference featuring a 42mm diameter case.

    Initially introduced in yellow gold in 2010, the reference has witnessed a few variations including examples encased in white gold, pink gold and last but not least platinum. Differing from the rest, the platinum ref. 5170 was the last iteration featuring a refreshed dial with baguette diamond-indexes and an attractive blue fumé dial. In production for less than three years, the platinum example was the very last variant of the reference. In 2019, Patek Philippe discontinued the ref. 5170 and replaced it with an entirely new ref. 5172G.

    The present example Patek Philippe ref. 5170P is very well-preserved with minimal wear and accompanied by its Certificate of Origin.
