    Appearing on the auction market for the very first time, reference 5399 was created to mark the 5th Anniversary of Patek Philippe's entry into China and the inauguration of its Boutique in Shanghai. The model's rarity is unparalleled - it was created as a limited series of 25 pieces only. It displays a striking rose dial that is further complemented by black oxidized markers, similar to that of the steel reference 5004. A hobnail bezel furthermore adds flair to this incredibly attractive timepiece.

    Incredibly rare and particularly sought after, rose or "salmon" dials are usually granted only upon special request by Patek Philippe. For the manufacture to launch this particular dial configuration is a momentous event, and the opening of the Shanghai Boutique is no exception.

    Previously only known to the horological cognoscenti, this model's appearance on the auction market is unprecedented and a particularly noteworthy occasion.

    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.
