  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe reference 5524 was first introduced to the public in Baselworld 2015. Taking inspiration from the past, it was inspired by the manufacture's pilot watches of the 1930s but was extremely sporty in nature: it displayed an incredibly modern dial, along with an enlarged case size. Originally introduced to the market only in white gold, Patek Philippe launched the pink gold version, such as the present example, with a stunning bronze dial in 2018 Baselworld.

    To date, only one other iteration of the present example has appeared on the auction market, underscoring the rarity of this timepiece. The present watch is offered in excellent, barely worn condition and is accompanied by all its original accessories such as the Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated June 28, 2019, setting pin, product literature, presentation box and outer packaging.
