Description

Best known for their Grand Complications watches Patek Philippe masters the “Haute Horlogerie” and are arguably the best in the industry.
In 1989, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the manufacture, Patek Philippe developed what is one of the most complicated portable timepiece in the world: the Calibre 89 with 33 complications but half a century ago in 1932 they had built the “Henry Graves Supercomplication” which had at that time 24 complications, including Westminster chimes, a perpetual calendar, sunrise and sunset times, and a celestial map of New York as seen from Graves’s apartment on Fifth Avenue.
For decades they did held the title of the most complicated watches built. Mastering their craft they perpetuated the skills and traditions to deliver in their current collection pieces of the highest quality.

The lineage of the 5970 goes back to the great-great grandfather reference 1518 (1941-1954), followed by the reference 2499 (1950-1985), the reference 3970 (1985-2004) and then our model the 5970 (2004-2010) and finally the current production model on the Patek Philippe catalogue the reference 5270 (2010-Present).

 

The present watch reference 5970R-001 is the pink gold version from the 5970 series (2004-2010). This discontinued model has been available from 2004 to 2009 only and overall production was the lowest among the three modern references with similar complications (3970, 5970 and 5270), and houses the last non-manufacture perpetual calendar movement based on a Lemania ébauche although heavily modified and finished by Patek Philippe. It is considered to be one of the best designed cases by the Genevian watchmaker.

Encased in an elegant 40mm pink gold case and displayed against a beautiful matte silver dial are the perpetual calendar, the moon-phase, tachymeter scale and chronograph, measured with pink gold hands and faceted baton indexes, making all functions very legible in contrast.
Another notable characteristic is the “Geneva Hallmark” a quality Seal is stamped on the lower left side of this watch’s mouvement, for the story Patek Philippe has ended the Geneva Seal certification after 123 years, replacing it by their own “PP” Seal from 2009/2010.

To raise the “desirability” bar of any true watch connoisseur, the dial comes with the “Tiffany & Co.” stamp on it, making it extremely rare example sold by Patek’s oldest retail partner in the United States on June 16th, 2005 by Tiffany & Co, New York.

– Our timepiece is available for viewing by appointment only.
