  • 百達翡麗,5070P型號,罕有原廠未開封鉑金手動上弦計時腕錶,年份約2009。附原廠錶盒、證書、吊牌、原廠紙盒、操作說明及皮製文件夾。

    In 1965, Patek Philippe stopped its production of all chronograph models. It wasn't until 1998 did the Swiss watchmaking manufacturer finally release the Ref. 5070 as its first chronograph-only model in the modern era. The production of Ref. 5070 ran for more than a decade, the last version Ref. 5070P was discontinued when Patek Philippe introduced Ref. 5170 with its first in-house chronograph movement in 2010. Thus, the Ref. 5070P ( as the present lot) became the last generation of Patek Philippe's chronograph driven by calibre 27-70 which is based on the Lemania 2310.

    The present Ref. 5070 is a platinum example with blue dial. With only approximately 500 pieces were produced, it is considered the rarest iterations of the reference. With a 42 millimeter case, this Ref. 5070P is relatively larger than other chronograph models made by Patek Philippe. Considering the trend of bigger watches and the fact that discontinued Patek Philippe chronograph have always been popular amongst collectors, this is clearly a watch that will not go unnoticed.
