  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe created its very first perpetual calendar wristwatch in 1925, and has never stopped innovating since. With the launch of its very first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, reference 1518, and serially produced perpetual calendar, reference 1526, the brand has stepped into the modern era of watchmaking by producing contemporary versions like no other.

    Launched in 2016, this variant of reference 5496 displays a satin silvered dial with applied gold markers, which is housed in a hefty platinum case. Housing a perpetual calendar function, the reference also displays a retrograde date at 12 o'clock, along with moonphases at 6 o'clock.

    Offered in excellent and pristine condition, the present watch is offered without reserve and is accompanied by its Certificate of Origin dated August 11, 2017, setting pin, leather wallet, product literature, winding box and outer packaging.
