The reference 5170 was launched in 2010 in yellow gold and in 2013 in white gold featuring white pulsometer scale. Replacing its predecessor, the 5170 was updated with a wider case (39 mm), and a new caliber (29–535 PS), modern touches, still remaining faithful to the classic and timeless styling. Introduced in 2013, the piece here offered has been realized in 18k white gold and is preserved in almost unworn conditions. The most important feature is the spectacular dial with white color and absolutely rare white-gold Breguet numerals and hands for both time and subsidiary dials. The perfect combination of gold case, white dial, black lettering and gold details are sensational and this alone would be enough to make this watch unmissable. It is, furthermore, accompanied by its original accessories such as the box, certificate of origin and all booklets.
