  • Catalogue Essay

    To celebrate the 250th anniversary of one of the most reputable Swiss retailers of fine timepieces and a long-time retailer of Patek Philippe, Beyer in collaboration with Patek Philippe released the handsome and rare limited-edition series of the chronograph ref. 5170 in yellow gold of 50 pieces. It not only displays a tachymeter scale, but also features the storied retailer's signature at 6 o'clock. So exclusive was this limited edition, that Patek Philippe created a special engraved caseback and presentation box in honour of the retailer's anniversary. Double signed pieces from Patek Philippe are extremely exclusive and only a few special retailers of the brand have had the privilege to do so over the decades.

    Preserved in excellent condition, the present watch is complete with its original certificate, additional caseback bearing "Patek Philippe No 42/50 Fabriquée pour le 250ème de Beyer à Zürich 1760 - 2010" and Patek Philippe box with a special engraving.

  • 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.
