  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 2006, reference 5396 is an annual calendar upgrade of time-only reference 5296. Heavily influenced by masterpieces from the company’s rich history, the model’s case is inspired by the Calatrava cases of the mid-20th century, defined by simple flowing lines. The dial is instead inspired by a different vintage model - reference 3448 - from which it reprises the windows, indexes and moonphases disposition, the main difference being in the subsidiary dial: reference 3448 uses it for the display of the date, while in this instance it features a 24-hour indication, the date reassigned to a third window at 6 o’ clock.

    Offered without reserve, the present watch is preserved in barely worn condition and is accompanied by its Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated 9 August, 2012, product literature, wallet, presentation box and outer packaging.

    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.
