Heavyweight Bout: Patek Philippe Reference 5170P vs. 5070P (Plus 5070P-013 'London' Edition ...

How does it stand up to my Patek Philippe Reference 5370P split-seconds chronograph? I addressed that topic briefly in my "Why I Bought It" article on the 5170P, but may return with another report after I have the benefit of more wrist time with both First things first: falling in love with Patek Philippe Reference 5070P It was seven or eight years ago that I first saw a Reference 5070P in the metal at one of our gang's regular luncheons that happened to have a "Chronograph" theme.

To my eye the modified dauphine hands with lume on Reference 5170 are one thing that I might have changed but they are a clear shift from Reference 5070's leaf hands Maybe if somewhere in the Patek Philippe vaults in Geneva there were a Reference 5070P with the more modern fonts and printing proportions of the "London" edition and the blue-grey color of the original Reference 5070 I'd be tempted to sell off a number of watches and get down on bended knee to ask for it For now, I'll be more than happy to wear my new-age Reference 5170P and borrow my pals' pieces from time to time!
