Catalogue Note

Reference 5970 was launched in 2004 and replaced with reference 3970 which had been in production since 1986. As the natural successor to the legendary Patek Philippe lineage of perpetual calendar chronograph models, the 5970 is clearly influenced by each of its preceding references. Equipped with a movement based on a Lemania ébauche (which was heavily modified and finished by Patek Philippe) calibre 27-70Q, reference 5970 houses the same movement as 3970. However, the case of the 5970 is considerably larger and more contemporary than its predecessors, with a diameter of 40 mm. In production for only 6 years, reference 5970 is the last perpetual calendar chronograph of the company featuring the Geneva seal on the movement. Since 2009, Patek Philippe has replaced the Geneva Seal with a higher-standard seal of its own.

This lot is available in excellent condition with an additional case back, setting pin and its original certificate. This present watch is true classic that is highly sought after.
