  • Catalogue Essay

    The reference 5020’s avant-garde design and tasteful proportions sets it apart from other perpetual calendar chronographs created by the brand. At the time of its launch, reference 5020 was too unconventional for Patek Philippe’s clientele and only elicited tepid response. Consequently, production remained extremely limited, making the model exceptionally scarce. Today, the reference is highly popular and sought-after thanks to its rarity, iconic look and complex movement.

    Instantly recognizable and eternally classic, with time rendered the model has become one of the most collectable and coveted perpetual calendar chronograph models created by Patek Philippe. The present lot is complemented with Certificate of Origin, box, setting pin, additional caseback and other accessories. The present example in 18K yellow gold is fresh to the market, and the 17th example of the model in yellow gold ever offered at auction.

    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.
