  • Catalogue Essay

    Released alongside reference 5105 to commemorate the reopening of Patek Philippe's salon in 2006, reference 5565 was the first Calatrava reference to be produced in stainless steel for a very long time.

    While the watch is incredibly sleek with a dual finished dial, the back of the watch pays homage to Patek Philippe's historical roots. The case back features an engraving of the Patek Philippe building, along with three key dates from the company's history. While 1839 commemorates the founding of the firm, 1892 represents the date of the building's restoration and reconstruction. Finally, 2006 marks the year the building was renovated and redesigned.

    The present watch, in like new condition, truly marks an important moment in time for Patek Philippe, while paying tribute to the most important dates within the company's history.

    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.
