  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 2005, the Patek Philippe ref. 5146 features an annual calendar complication and is the second annual calendar reference serially produced by Patek Philippe. Replacing the ref. 5035, the first annual calendar reference introduced in 1996, the new model featured a rather similar aesthetic. Prior to the release of the annual calendar wristwatch, collectors had to choose either between the super complicated perpetual calendar wristwatch and the simple triple calendar, there was nothing available in between. The introduction of the annual calendar wristwatch certainly filled a spot in the industry where it was needed.

    Encased in an elegant 39mm diameter 18K white gold Calatrava style case, the ref. 5146 carries a rather traditional and timeless appeal. Fitted with an attractive ivory lacquered dial, the hue matches perfectly with the luminous hands and applied yellow gold indexes and numerals. With its dial layout symmetrical, the legibility is clear and practical. The present example Patek Philippe ref. 5146J features the rare and desirable retailer signature of Tiffany & Co. on the dial discreetly below its power reserve indication at 12 o’clock. Fresh-to-the-market and the first example to appear with the Tiffany & Co. signature, the present timepiece is absolutely well-preserved with very minimal wear. It is a great opportunity for collectors to acquire an elegant and rare timepiece manufactured by Patek Philippe and stamped by Tiffany & Co.

    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.
