  • Catalogue Essay

    Reference 5004 was first introduced in 1996 and the present white gold example was manufactured in that very first year. It has been preserved in excellent overall condition, still retaining crisp gold marks under the lugs, which are nicely fluted. The dial is in immaculate condition, and the watch still retains all original accessories.

    Reference 5004 joins the ranks of its other contemporary colleagues such as the reference 5016, 5013 and 3970 and 3939. The reference was discontinued in 2012 and has an increasing demand and popularity amongst collectors whom are new to Patek Philippe or veterans who have been collecting for 30 years.

    Patek Philippe

    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.
