  • Catalogue Essay

    When Patek Philippe launched reference 5235G at Basel World in 2012 it was nothing less than a sensation. In fact, it has been nearly one century since the venerable Geneva manufacturer last made a watch featuring a regulator dial.

    Reference 5235G is most likely one of Patek Philippe’s most minimalistic and cleanest designs of the last few decades. Nevertheless, it still offers a substantial number of most practical indications, along with being fitted with an all-new movement. Besides the very smart regulator dial-layout with the hours and seconds placed on vertically aligned subsidiary dials and consequently allowing the minute hand to stand alone in the centre, it also features a complete annual calendar with apertures showing the week day, month and date.

    The satin-finished dial features a two-tone configuration and the Patek Philippe signature is delicately engraved into the dial plate on the right side of the centre.

    The present watch, still sealed and never worn since its sale in early 2014, represents a very rare opportunity as this reference is one of the most difficult to obtain and is “blessed” with one of the longest waiting lists of the firm’s production.

    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.

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.
