Catalogue Note

Patek Philippe introduced the ref. 5070 in 1998 after nearly 30 years of hiatus from the production of chronograph wristwatches by the firm.  This model was an instant success. In fact, the last chronograph model produced prior to the 5070 was the ref. 1463, production of which ceased in the late 1960s.  The design of the ref. 5070 takes inspiration from the split second chronograph, ref. 2512.

The calibre 27 70 157 is widely recognized as one of the best chronograph movements and is based on a Nouvelle Lemania ébauche specially developed for Patek Philippe. The movement was used only in the refs. 5070 and 5071 (the white gold diamond-set version of the 5070).

The 5070 was originally launched in yellow gold only, but after three years, the firm introduced pieces in white gold. This was followed by pink gold in 2003, and platinum in 2008. Production ceased in 2010 with the introduction of the ref. 5170.
