  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 1996, Patek Philippe's reference 5004 was in production for 15 short years only. This perpetual calendar chronograph watch was, and still remains particularly special because it features a split second complication.

    During this production period, Patek Philippe produced some incredibly special examples, some with gem-set stones, and others with special dials. The present watch is such an example, as it features a special salmon coloured dial coupled with Arabic numerals. The present watch is a unique example, likely made upon an esteemed client's request and fashioned to his or her specifications.

  • Artist Biography

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
