Description
Unlike ex heads of state, the 5970 does not need to let history decide on its legacy: it's price has risen significantly, thank you very much, and this trend is unlikely to change for this discontinued classic.

The Patek Philippe 5970 is a thoroughly modern interpretation of Patek's classical pairing of the perpetual calendar and chronograph complications. This is a gorgeous watch in every respect. The case is at once more modern and more vintage in appearance than its predecessor (the 3970). It's a bolder, more massive case with vintage lines.

Let's start with the 18k rose gold case. The dimensions are 40mm diameter by 13.5mm thick, with three piece construction. The bezel is quite tall and massive, while the center section bows quite broadly to allow room for the large caliber, and the screw down case back seals everything securely. Lugs are flared, which imparts a vintage style, which is reinforced by the rectangular shaped chronograph pushers. The watch is delivered with a sapphire crystal display back and a second, solid caseback. Domed sapphire crystal in front. Water resistant to 25 meters.

Dial is silver with rose gold hands and applied hour markers. Days and months are displayed underneath 12 o'clock, nine o'clock subdial displays constant seconds and 24 hour indicator, three o'clock subdial displays leap year and 30 minute chronograph counter, and the moonphase and date are displayed above six o'clock.

While I'm sure some people prefer the solid back, I can't imagine hiding this amazing caliber. The Patek Philippe Caliber 27 70 Q is a sight to behold. Manual winding with 24 jewels, power reserve of approximately 55 hours, beating at 18,000 beats per hour. This truly superlative caliber provides a perpetual calendar and column wheel chronograph construction.

Strap is rich brown, hand-sewn crocodile with an 18k rose gold Patek clasp.

Watch is complete with box, papers, sold case back and stylus.
