  • Catalogue Essay

    Combining a flyback chronograph and annual calendar complication, reference 5905 was introduced in 2015. Borrowing aesthetics from annual calendar reference 5205, reference 5905 provided a more complicated upgrade to the beloved model. This platinum model most notably features a diamond between the lugs, denoting Patek Philippe's use of platinum. The model was available either with black dial or blue dial.

    Offered in like-new condition and without reserve, the present timepiece is complete with its Certificate of Origin dated February 2, 2016, setting pin, product literature, leather wallet, presentation box and outer packaging.

    Most notably, the original owner painstakingly purchased a platinum Patek Philippe deployant buckle to replace the pin buckle, adding another facet and touch of luxury to this sought-after timepiece.

  • 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.
