  • Catalogue Essay

    Marking a new and important era for Patek Philippe, the firm introduced the ref. 5170 in 2010 bearing the manufacturer’s very first in-house chronograph movement cal. CH 29-535 PS replacing the former ref. 5070 with a Lemania-based movement. The reference was also one of the very first to bear the newly incorporated Patek Philippe seal marking an end to the Geneva seal era.

    Featuring a classic Calatrava-style case, it differs from the ref. 5070 with a larger 42mm diameter case inspired by the unique ref. 2512 from the early 1950s. Instead, it features a friendly 39.4mm diameter case that was first released in yellow gold. The reference introduced various examples over the course of its production when it was discontinued in 2019.

    The present example Patek Philippe ref. 5170G-010 features a handsome black dial with extremely desirable applied white gold Breguet numerals. From circa 2016, consigned by the original owner and kept in brand new unopened double factory seal condition and complete with its full set of accessories, this specimen of a discontinued reference is a keeper for any lovers of chronograph wristwatches by Patek Philippe.

  • 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.
