  • Catalogue Essay

    At the Baselworld 2017, Patek Philippe celebrated two anniversaries such as the 20th anniversary of the Aquanaut. However, with that said, Patek Philippe also introduced two debutants the ref. 5372P in blue and a version with a salmon dial. Extremely impressive, the perpetual calendar single button split-seconds chronograph timepiece features for the first time in the lineage a single button chronograph on top of all the other complications featured in the timepiece. Adopting a case design with countersunk and satin-finished flanks that is relatively similar to the split-seconds chronograph ref. 5370 measuring 43mm in diameter, the ref. 5372 impressively measures a smaller case dimension at 38.3mm diameter. Differing from all its other counterparts and predecessors, the dial no longer features day and month windows above the signature at 12 O’clock and is instead replaced by moon phases above the signature at 12 O’clock with a day aperture positioned at 9 O’clock and its month aperture located opposite at 3 O’clock. Extremely attractive with a comfortable case dimension compared to the less complicated ref. 5370, the ref. 5372 is certainly a desirable grand complication Patek Philippe timepiece.

    The present example Patek Philippe ref. 5372P-001 features a blue sunburst dial and is offered in absolute pristine “like new” overall condition and accompanied by its full set of accessories. Furthermore, it is the first time that the present reference is being offered at a PHILLIPS auction.
