  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 1992, reference 5040 was in production until 2007. The model was available in yellow gold, pink gold, white gold, as well as platinum and is distinguished by its tonneau-shaped case. At the time of launch, it was Patek Philippe's first serially produced perpetual calendar model that featured a tonneau-shaped design.

    Fresh to the auction market, the present example is cased in platinum, which is most notably denoted by the single diamond set between the lugs. It is preserved in excellent condition with crisp hallmarks beneath the lugs and overall excellent proportions. Furthermore, the black dial is confirmed by the Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives.

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.
