  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 2005, reference 5296 was made in tribute to Patek Philippe’s celebrated Calatrava collection produced in the 1930s. The reference, produced in white or pink gold only, is inspired from a historical Calatrava made in the 1930, which is on view at the Patek Philippe museum. Although the reference is still in current production, this reference remains particularly popular amongst collectors due to its timeless design and well-proportioned two-tone sector dial.

    Fresh to the market, still sealed and completed with all original accessories, the present watch is exceptional.

    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.
