Constantly in production until the present day, this dynasty of chronograph with perpetual calendar and moon phases was born in 1941 with the legendary 1518 replaced only a few years later by the equally iconic 2499 (in 1950) and after that by the 3970. The 5970 were introduced in 2004 by Thierry Stern as the successor to the reference 3970. In devising the 5970, Thierry wanted to create a watch that would cater to the younger generation while also inheriting the legacy that defined Patek’s remarkable history. The Patek 5970 was the last of Patek’s perpetual calendar watches to utilize the Lemania 2310-based movement. The yellow-gold case of the lot offered here is exceptional, equipped with a very elegant Matte silver dial with applied yellow gold faceted baton indexes, subsidiary dials for the seconds, 24 hours, 30-minute register and leap year, graduation for the days of the month, minute/ seconds track and tachometer scale, outer 1/5th seconds track, apertures for days of the week, months and moon phases, compleated by the Yellow gold feuille hands. An icon and a piece of history is offered here for true lovers and enthusiasts. Accompanied by its Certificate of Origin confirming the case material, caliber and the sale on the 13th August 2008.
