  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 2006 as the successor to the reference 3940, the reference 5140 marked a notable evolution in Patek Philippe's perpetual calendar timepieces. While retaining the esteemed caliber 240 Q automatic perpetual calendar movement, the case dimensions expanded from the classic 36mm to a more contemporary 37.2mm. Furthermore, updates were made to the dial design and text, aligning it with Patek Philippe's modern aesthetic while enhancing legibility.

    Characterized by its slender profile, graceful Calatrava case, and practical functionality, the reference 5140 swiftly became a coveted choice for discerning individuals seeking a refined timepiece.

    However, Patek Philippe ceased production of all case metal and dial configurations for the reference 5140 by 2016, introducing the reference 5327 as its replacement, which remains in production today. The present offering, crafted in 18K pink gold and featuring a captivating silver dial, debuted in 2014.

    This particular timepiece, presented in hardly worn condition and accompanied by its full set of accessories, additional caseback and setting pin, presents an enticing opportunity for those in search of technical excellence, everyday versatility, and understated elegance.
