  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe's reference 5020, launched in 1994 and discontinued in 2002, is known to collectors as the “TV screen” due to it’s particular cushion shape. It’s avant-garde design set it apart from other perpetual calendar chronograph watches produced by the brand at that time, however due to it’s unusual case shape the response was lukewarm from clients resulting in low production numbers over the years. The model was made in all gold metals as well as platinum and research indicates Patek Philippe made approximately 150 examples in platinum.

    Serviced in 2008 and under the request of the previous owner during a factory overhaul, Patek Philippe provided an additional silvered dial with Breguet numerals. Further enhancing the attractiveness and desirability of the present lot. This is without a doubt one of the most collectible modern Patek Philippe modern complication.
