- A FINE AND RARE WHITE GOLD PERPETUAL CALENDAR SPLIT SECONDS CHRONOGRAPH WRISTWATCH WITH MOON-PHASES
REF 5004G MVT 879601 CASE 2997121 MADE IN 1998
- white gold
The calibre 27 70QR ingeniously combines both a split seconds chronograph and perpetual calendar functions. These calendar functions allow the watch to accurately provide a 24-hour display with leap year indications and an accurate moon phase device. The split seconds chronograph provides simultaneous measurements of separate events starting at the same time and is facilitated by Patek Philippe’s patented split seconds disengagement mechanism which is accurate within a fraction of a second. This watch is a first series model, having been one of the first 500 to enter circulation.
