  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 2012 in white gold, reference 5940 is the successor to reference 5040. These two models offered an option to Patek Philippe clients looking for a perpetual calendar with moonphases (one of the brand’s most appreciated complications) in a different case shape than the standard round one. Originally offered in yellow gold, the white gold version was introduced in 2014 but with a silvery white dial. The present black dial version was released the following year.

    Boasting a strong Art Deco influence, the model is defined by its cushion-shape case with the dial amplifying the old-school vibe of the timepiece thanks to the Breguet numerals. Another detail - much less obvious - brings to mind to the Belle Epoque with the date ring featuring unusually a Dauphine style font more typical of the 1920s.

    Offered by its original owner and complete with all its original accessories, the present watch is a remarkable offer for connoisseurs of fine timepieces.

    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.
