  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 2005, reference 5146 is fitted with an annual calendar function. The model replaced reference 5035, which was launched in 1996 and at the time, the first serially produced annual calendar model ever made. Before this innovation, watchmakers were offering either highly complicated perpetual calendar pieces or relatively simple triple calendar watches. Reference 5146 maintains intact the aesthetic canons of the original reference 5035, distinguished by three subsidiary counters at 2, 6 and 10 o’clock. This architecture coupled with the distinguished slate grey dial and the timeless Calatrava proportions of the case creates a supremely elegant timepiece.

    Offered without reserve, the present example cased in platinum is preserved in excellent condition and was most likely worn a few times only. It is offered as a complete set with its Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin stamped Beyer and dated May 2, 2013, setting pin, product literature, wallet, fitted presentation box and outer packaging.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
