  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 2006 in pink gold and in 2008 in white gold, reference 5396 has earned itself a special place in the modern Patek Philippe panorama. A perfect synthesis of heritage value and modern watchmaking, it features the supremely useful annual calendar - a Patek Philippe invention first released in 1996 - and an extremely elegant and understated Calatrava case, seemingly directly inspired by the first calatrava reference ever: reference 96. The dial design as well fully incorporates Patek Philippe DNA with the windows at 12 and the subsidiary counter at 6 incorporating the moon phases. Such a historical laytout, featured on landmark models such as references 2497, 2438, and 3448 and 3450, is modernized by the addition of the 24-hour indication and the date window at 6. The present iteration featuring anthracite grey dial and Breguet numerals is without a doubt one of the most distinguished and eye-pleasing to be found on this reference.

    Offered by its original owner, the presence of absolutely every part of its original sale kit - including numbered sale tag, numbered factory plastic sleeve and cardboard box and numbered envelope- and its virtually as-new condition are the final icing on this highly appealing horological cake.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
