ψ This image is of a similar watch of the same model for display purposes only and is not the actual watch being offered for sale nor included in this lot.
The endangered species strap is also shown for display purposes only and is not for sale. The actual watch for sale will be supplied with a calf leather strap.

The present yellow gold reference 5970 is offered double factory sealed and has therefore never been worn.

Reference 5970
A successor of the celebrated reference 3970, reference 5970 was introduced to the market at Basel World in April 2005 and remained in production until about 2010. The model immediately enjoyed enormous popularity amongst collectors and was available in white gold or pink gold only until 2007 when the production of these two versions ceased. Reference 5970 in yellow gold was in production only in 2008 and 2009. From 2009 until the end of production, the model was available exclusively in platinum.

Reference 5970 is the last perpetual calendar chronograph of the company featuring the Geneva seal on the movement as Patek Philippe began stamping their movements with the Patek Philippe Seal from mid-2009 as a new quality benchmark for its mechanical timepieces.

To the best of our knowledge, this lot has never been offered at auction and is fresh to the market
