5070 ( no other title needed :-) )

these are old pictures which I took long ago.
My AD had one 5070P and called me when it was delivered. The watch was ofcourse sold but at least I could take some pics of this dreampiece



























And because I read too many questions on this site if a Patek is really so much better than Rolex ...
Look at these macro movement shots. The finishing is unbelievable

note that these are pics from another 5070, the red gold.
Also pictures I took long ago but since the movement shot from the platinum 5070 were not that good I'll show these.
Ofcourse the movement in a 5070 red, yellow white or platinum are exactly the same.

So if somebody ever asks again if they are better ... this answers your question.
If you don't know how much effort this takes ... read some books about high-end watchmaking

Love the 5070P, it's a work of art. THanks for posting.

Also happens to be one of Ken's many "entry-level" pieces!

Fantastic pics. 5070P is one of the best PPs.

The 5070 is an incredible piece. One of my all time favorite chronos. It is also powered by a Lemania movement which is awesome
