Description

The Patek Philippe perpetual calendar chronograph did more than just usher the Geneva brand into the 21st century.

As much as the marketing teams of Swiss watch brands like to use the word “iconic” to describe every other launch, there are but a few timepieces made in the 21st century that can legitimately stake claim to being considered a modern classic. However even the most cynical watch connoisseurs will agree that Patek Philippe’s reference 5970, a perpetual calendar chronograph made between 2004 and 2010, is watch that ticks all the boxes on the checklist for being considered a modern classic. To borrow a term from the world of classic car collecting, the reference 5970 is a youngtimer – a watch that’s not old enough to be termed vintage but has already attained timeless appeal.

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 (2004-2011).

After the 5970P’s release, a bejewelled sibling bearing reference 5971P was added to the catalogue with a 36 flawless white Top Wesselton baguette-cut diamond bezel, around the last year of its lifetime to spice things up, a handful of bezel set with rubies, sapphires and emeralds were offered to VIP customers, these references were not offered on the public catalogue.

One of those, the elusive Patek Philippe reference 5971/13P-010 is not just a watch; it’s a whispered conversation between art and time, a dance of elegance and precision. Introduced in 2010, this limited production, with only very few in existence, is a rare jewel in the crown of horological masterpieces.

Encased in its heart is the soul of the revered 5970, but with a twist that sets it apart in the realm of luxury timepieces. The bezel of the 5971/13P-010 is adorned with 36 spectacular baguette-cut emeralds, each gem a testament to nature’s beauty, meticulously hand-selected and set to create a symphony of vibrant green hues. These emeralds aren’t mere embellishments; they are the stars in the night sky, illuminating the platinum case with an otherworldly glow.  The pin buckle wasn’t forgotten, it is also adorned with 6 baguette emeralds.

The black lacquered dial is a canvas where functionality meets fantasy. Emerald hour markers sparkle like distant galaxies, casting a radiant light against the darkness. The perpetual calendar complication, a marvel of mechanical ingenuity, gracefully displays the passage of days, dates, and months, along with the leap year, all harmoniously orbiting around the elegantly displayed moon phase.

But the beauty of the 5971/13P-010 is not just in what you can see but also in what you feel. The manual-winding mechanical movement, the heartbeat of this masterpiece, is renowned for its precision and reliability, echoing the steadfast rhythm of time itself.

Completing this masterpiece is a strap of the finest hand-stitched alligator leather, as black as the deepest ocean, with an emerald incrusted pin buckle. The Patek Philippe Reference 5971/13P-010 is more than a mere timepiece; it is a bridge between the ephemeral and the eternal, a luxurious testament to the art of watchmaking, reserved for those who not only appreciate the finer things in life but who are also custodians of time’s most elegant expressions.

Without a doubt one of, if not the most collectible crown-jewel of the 5970s lineage.
