    Made to commemorate the re-opening of the Patek Philippe boutique in Geneva in 2006, reference 5565 is most notably cased in stainless steel. It furthermore displays a special engraving on the caseback “Patek Philippe Geneve 1839-1982-2006”, marking three important dates within the history of Patek Philippe.

    Inspired by the reference 565, it recalls the iconic vintage water-resistant model while appearing incredibly modern with its stainless steel case and luminous hands. Fitted with the caliber 215 PS, it perfectly exemplifies the know-how and finesse the Genevan brand is best-known for.

    The reference was made in 300 pieces, and was launched alongside reference 5105, which was fitted with a vintage cal. 9'''90 movement. Both models were only exclusively available through the Geneva salon, and are particularly collectible among Patek Philippe enthusiasts today.

    The present watch is preserved in excellent condition and is accompanied by its Patek Philippe Attestation dated December 30, 2006, commemorative medal, product literature leather wallet and presentation box.

    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.
