  • Catalogue Essay

    Made to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Beyer Chronometrie's Patek Philippe boutique in 2016, this limited edition version of reference 5205 was made in 25 pieces only. Cased in white gold, it most notably displays a beautiful blue dial that perfectly compliments the luster of the case material. Most importantly, the outside caseback bears "Beyer 2016" to commemorate the special event. At the time of production in 2016, the reference had never existed with a blue dial. Such exclusive timepieces were offered to the retailer's very best clients, underscoring its exclusivity. To date, only one other example has appeared on the auction market.

    Consigned by the original owner, this timepiece is preserved in almost like-new condition and was most likely worn once or twice only. It is furthermore offered as a "full set" and replete with the original certificate stamped by Beyer Chronometrie confirming the blue dial, setting pin, portfolio photograph, fitted presentation box and outer packaging.

    Launched in 2010, reference 5205 features an automatic annual calendar complication with instantaneously jumping indicators for the day, date and month. The model was produced in pink gold and white gold.

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.
