  • Catalogue Essay

    Upon its launch in 1994, Patek Philippe’s reference 5020 had a lukewarm reception but today it is a collector’s dream and highly coveted.

    This model was in production for about 8 years, Patek Philippe’s reference 5020, also known as the “TV Screen” due to its particular cushion shape, was an alternative to the reference 3970 featuring the same complications (and mechanically identical): perpetual calendar with leap year, 24 hour indicator and chronograph.

    The reference 5020’s avant garde design and tasteful proportions set it apart from other perpetual calendar chronographs from Patek Philippe.

    The present example, in overall appealing condition is from the first year of production, it is fresh to the market and only the 14th white gold examlpe to appear on the market, it is further accompanied by a setting pin and extra caseback.
