  • Catalogue Essay

    Reference 5050 is a retrograde perpetual calendar and is sought after by collectors. The present watch is a very rare variant because it is fitted with a highly unusual gray dial.

    Originally discontinued in 2002, the present watch was made after the reference was discontinued in an extremely limited number of pieces for Patek Philippe's biggest clients. Offered in excellent overall condition, and retaining all accessories, the watch visually has a look that is hard to beat.

    5050型號1990年代面世後,於2002年正式停產。2009年日內瓦沙龍再推出約30枚5050黃金款式腕錶,其特別之處是全部採用寶璣式數字時標及寶璣式時分秒針錶面設計,並搭載324機芯有別於早期的315機芯,有黑、灰及銀白三種面盤顏色,每款共十枚。今次拍品來源自第一手原收藏家,配件齊全品相如新。

    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.
