  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe is appreciated by collectors for their traditional horological past and masterful craftsmanship and design aesthetic. One of their most valued complicated watches is their iconic line of serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph wristwatches. Its roots date back to 1941 with the creation of the reference 1518, followed by the 2499, the 3970, and the 5970 which marked the end of the era of Patek Philippe’s use of outsourced – and superbly modified - movements for the base chronograph calibers.

    In 2011 Patek Philippe introduced the ground-breaking successor reference 5270, which was the brand’s very first perpetual calendar chronograph with a fully in-house movement. There are three recognized series of the 5270, which are as follows:

    First series: like the present model, the hands and numerals are blackened white gold, offering the highest legibility among all the three series. The dial features railway minute divisions combined with Arabic five-minute divisions and was produced from 2011-2013.

    Second series: in production from 2013 to 2015, the hand and numerals are now classic white with a tachymeter scale, which follows the contour of the subsidiary seconds counter.

    Third series: the white numerals and hands are unchanged, but the tachymeter scale now stops where it intersects the running seconds subsidiary dials. The current production 5270 is only available in platinum.

    This first-series reference 5270G is fresh-to-the-market offered by the original owner. The watch is accompanied with its original Certificate of Origin, presentation box, additional solid caseback, product literature, and original packaging. The watch is in excellent overall condition, and a superb example of the earliest iteration of this milestone reference.
