  • Catalogue Essay

    While Patek Philippe’s reference 5013 spanned two centuries, first released in 1992 and discontinued in 2010, it has the classic charm and iconic style of early 20th-century watches with a tonneau-shaped case and grand complication movement featuring repeat function combined with perpetual calendar and moon phase. The brand has had a long tradition manufacturing repeating perpetual calendar timepieces with exceptional pocket watches reaching back more than 100 years, however this model is a modern marvel with an automatic movement, their first for a perpetual calendar minute repeating watch. There is a contemporary feel with the pink gold case and rare black dial combination, which features a retrograde date hand. A difficult complication to add to a timepiece the feature dates to the late 19th century and follows in the footsteps of V. Piguet.

    In early 2008, Patek Philippe announced they would have a larger US presence with the opening of a salon at the famed Tiffany and Company in New York City. The two have had a long and prestigious relationship reaching back to 1851 when Antoine Norbert de Patek and Charles Lewis Tiffany shook hands and agreed to a special relationship. Since that time many Patek Philippe watches have sported the Tiffany & Co. signature, and while the present reference 5013R does not have the signature, the watch was sold in the first year the salon opened in Tiffany’s and it is stamped on the original Certificate of Origin, along with the name The Henri Stern Agency, the Patek Philippe distributor in the United States.

    The present example is in excellent overall condition and while very lightly polished in the past, the watch the epitome of Patek Philippe workmanship and design. There are nine known examples of the reference in pink gold with three, including this watch, with black dials. This very rare timepiece is an opportunity for a collectors to acquire and appreciate one of the modern masters of horology.
