  • Catalogue Essay

    The present Patek Philippe reference 5057R Cortina is the only piece made for an Asian retailer found in this Double Signed auction.

    Made in 1997 in only 100 pieces in pink gold to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Patek Philippe’s Singapore based retailer Cortina, the present reference 5057 is a medium complication featuring a power reserve display at 10, date and moonphase between 7 and 8 as well as an offset seconds subdial between 4 and 5 o’clock.

    Even though these features already existed in Patek Philippe watches, notably the reference 5054, Patek Philippe created a new case design for this limited edition, featuring short angled lugs and a beautiful guilloché bezel with Clous de Paris motif.

    Giving life to the watch is Patek Philippe’s automatic micro rotor cal 240PS IRM G LU bearing the prestigious Geneva seal.

    In very attractive condition the watch has hardly seen any wrist time and the gold hallmarks on the lugs are perfectly crisp. Presented full set with Attestation of Limited Edition, Certificate of Origin, box and product literature the present watch will certainly delight the esthete.

    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.
