Top Reasons to Buy a Patek Philippe 5970
The Patek Philippe 5970 is one of the most expensive watches ever made by world famous watchmakers Patek Philippe. There is no denying the fact that this watch can not be afforded by all buyers. However, there is hardly a better choice if you are planning to buy a luxury watch. This is one of the most beautiful and gorgeous watches ever made by any manufacturer throughout the two century old history of watch making. The Patek Philippe 5970 is an amazing combination of chronograph and perpetual calendar, two of the most legendary complications from Patek Philippe. No wonder this is one of the most sought after modern timepieces that are still in production.
The Patek Philippe 5970 was introduced by the company after they decided to discontinue their previous model with chronograph and perpetual calendar, reference 3970. The case of the 5970 model is one of the top reasons for you to buy it. The case made of solid gold or platinum has a diameter of 40 mm and a thickness of 13.5 mm. There is an attractively massive bezel and a domed sapphire crystal. There is sufficient space for the large caliber because the central section can be bowed quite broadly. Everything is sealed securely by the screw down case back. A vintage styling has been imparted to the Patek Philippe 5970 by the flared lugs. This vintage appearance has been further reinforced by the use of rectangular chronograph pushers. These chronograph pushers are surely going to remind you of the legendary ancestors of this model like reference 2499 and 1518. You will love your new Patek Pphilippe 5970 from the moment it is delivered to you, whether you have the solid case back, or the sapphire crystal display back installed. The water resistant case provides protection from water up to 25 meters.
Many of you may prefer watches with a solid back. However, with a caliber as amazing as the one in the Patek Philippe 5970, you would never want to hide this beautiful caliber. The exposed 27-70 Q caliber provides a different appeal altogether and is truly a sight to behold. The manually wound movement of Patek 5970 is nothing less than a work of art. With 18,000 beats per hour, power reserve for more than 50 hours, this superlative caliber easily outscores most others commonly used in modern day watch making. Some other reasons for you to buy the Patek Philippe 5970 are its white gold made hands, date and moon phase indicator, and leap year indicator.
