  • Catalogue Essay

    The reference 5170, cased in yellow gold, was introduced 2010 housing the first in-house chronograph movement by Patek Philippe. It replaced the 12-year run of the reference 5070, the first Patek chronograph to be produced since the discontinuation of the iconic vintage reference 1463 in the late 1960s. The reference 5070 was significantly larger than the 5170, at 42mm in diameter, and housed a Lemania-based chronograph movement modified and finished by Patek Philippe.

    The white gold version of the reference 5170 was introduced in 2013, with the distinctions of having a dial with applied Breguet hour markers and pulsometer scale. With a slim yet sizable case profile, the 5170 is highly discreet and wearable - a perfect watch for the office, board meeting, or for weekend wear. Stamped with the Patek Philippe Seal, the caliber CH 29-535 PS winds smoothly and beautifully, and the chronograph buttons have extremely satisfying haptics. The present example is offered in excellent condition from its original owner, with all of its original accessories.
