    Property from the Estate of an Important American Collector

    The reference 5170, cased in yellow gold, was introduced in 2010 housing the first in-house, “simple” 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 pushers have extremely satisfying haptics. The present example is offered in excellent condition from the original owner’s family, with all of its original accessories.

  • 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.
