  • Catalogue Essay

    Regarded as the master of the complication, Patek Philippe introduced the ref. 5320G-001 at the Baselworld 2017 marking a new era and an entirely new perpetual calendar reference. Taking inspiration from its ancestral greats, the ref. 5320G-001 exudes a strong vintage appeal with modern practicalities. First feature one may notice is the “ivory” lacquered dial that resembles the creamy patina sometimes witnessed on vintage Patek Philippe timepieces due to ageing. Secondly, the applied Arabic numerals are reminiscent of the coveted ref. 1518, modernized with applied luminous material to give the wearer better legibility. Encased in 18K white gold, the timepiece takes 1940s art deco inspiration from the chronometer ref. 2405 with the distinctive and decorative three-tiered stepped lugs.

    Extremely well-executed with aesthetics perfectly in-line with the contemporary taste of collectors seeking for a touch of vintage. Fresh-to-the-market, the present example Patek Philippe ref. 5320G-001 offered by the original owner is preserved in excellent overall condition and only worn a handful of times. With the freshly announced discontinuation of the present variant to welcome the 5320g-011 with a salmon dial in Watches & Wonder 2022. The present timepiece accompanied with its full set of accessories is with no doubt one of the most undervalued contemporary Patek Philippe timepieces.
