  • Catalogue Essay

    First released in 1992, the Patek Philippe Calatrava ref. 5000 was first launched as a limited edition of 1,000 pieces only in white gold and was discontinued a year after in 1993. Although the reference was released in yellow and pink gold after, the white gold example was no longer featured in the catalogues. Featuring a 33.4mm diameter case, it encases the firm’s famous micro-rotor cal. 240 PS with small seconds at 4 o’clock. Another interesting trait of the reference is that they all came with deployant clasp in the style of the Ellipse.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
