  • 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 in-house, 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.

    Encased only in platinum and previously only made available with a black enamel dial, Patek Philippe launched the new ref. 5370P-011 in 2020 with a never seen before blue enamel dial replacing the first iteration of the reference in black. Manufactured in low numbers, the ref. 5370P-001 with a black enamel dial will go down in history being the very first reference to feature the firm’s first in-house split seconds chronograph caliber. With an established and important heritage in manufacturing some of the world’s most impressive chronograph timepieces, any split seconds chronograph manufactured by Patek Philippe is a masterpiece to acquire.

    The present example Patek Philippe ref. 5370P-001 from circa 2018 is offered in excellent overall condition with very minimal signs of use and wear. Complete with its full set of accessories and fresh to the market, the present discontinued model is no less than a great catch.
