  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 2012, the reference 5204 is the successor of the reference 5004. With a newly designed case and a refined dial, the 5204 maintains certain traits as the 5004, although much has been changed. The case size was enlarged from 36.7 millimeters to 40 millimeters with regards to keeping up to date with the current trend for larger watches. The hour markers have also been refined from the Arabic numerals seen on the 5004 to now baton numerals seen in the current reference 5204. The most significant change on the dial from the previous reference is the positioning of the moon phase indicator, as it is now upside down and ironically resembling a "smile". Housed inside the significantly larger case is the new Patek Philipe in-house cal. CHR 29-535 PS Q. The caliber in the previous reference was essentially a heavily modified Lemania based caliber 27-70 Q.

    The 5204R was introduced 4 years after the launch of the first model in platinum, in Baselworld 2016. The present example is single sealed and has never been opened. The watch is completely brand new with the full set of accessories including the original Certificate of Origin.

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.
