  • Catalogue Essay

    Produced in 1994 with a short production run for about 8 years, Patek Philippe’s reference 5020 is also known as the “TV screen” due to it’s particular cushion shape. It’s avant-grade design set it apart from the other perpetual calendar chronograph at produced by Patek Philippe during that period.

    However, due to the it’s unusual case shape the response was lukewarm from clients resulting in very low production numbers over the years. It is believed that about 200 examples were made varying across 4 different metals, reference 5020 was produced in yellow gold, pink gold, white gold and platinum. To our best of knowledge, less than 20 pieces were cased in platinum throughout the entire production making it exceeding rare.

    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.
