Chronograph | 5170G-010 | grey gold | Black dial
The Patek Philippe reference 5170 was first introduced seven years ago, as the latest chapter in a legacy of great manually-wound, two-register chronographs. Replacing the Lemania-powered 5070, the reference 5170 was originally produced exclusively in yellow-gold, as the 5170J, before later adopting the grey-gold case featured in this example, titled the 5170G-010.
The reference 5170G-010 in particular, harks back to much admired Patek Philippe chronographs of the 1940s, displaying leaf-shaped hands (reminiscent of early ‘dress watches’), with a stark black dial and applied, 'oversized' Breguet numerals – classically sized, at 39.4mm in case diameter.
The 5170G-010 has a black, opalescent dial with two, uniform subsidiary dials at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock respectively. The dial is classically understated, balancing the outer-minute track perfectly. The watch displays five hands - hours, minutes, and seconds for the time, with seconds and minute hands for the chronograph; the latter of which - instantaneously jumping every 30 minutes. Overall, the dial layout is cleanly designed, with the chronograph highly-legible in a variety of lighting conditions. The 5170G-010 also has a stop-seconds feature, making accurate synchronization when the crown is pulled, all the more convenient.
The reference 5170G integrates Patek Philippe’s very first in-house chronograph movement, boasting a number of patented innovations and technical refinements, designed to improve functionality and dependability, over that of previous Lemania-based calibres. The calibre CH 29-535 PS movement is based on the classic architecture of column-wheel control – a hallmark of exceptional mechanical chronographs. It features a large, four-spoke Gyromax balance-wheel with four poising weights, beating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 A/h), with a guaranteed power reserve of 65 hours (58, with an activated chronograph).
As with all contemporary Patek Philippe watches, it has the Patek Philippe seal, guaranteeing its accuracy to -3 and +2 seconds daily, keeping time better than the industry benchmark chronometer grade movements. The movement is beautifully finished, with exquisite chamfering on all angles, polishing and decoration, in the form of Geneva striping.
This example comes as a full set with an original Patek Philippe, gloss black, alligator strap; our Barcelona and Madrid suede straps; sealed Patek Philippe white-gold deployant; new white-gold Patek Philippe buckle and its accompanying box and original paperwork.
Viewings can be arranged in Central London by appointment.
