  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe ref. 5039 was launched in 1996 and remained in production until 2007 features the manufacturer’s prized self-winding perpetual calendar mechanism via the cal. 240Q with a micro-rotor. Decorated with a Clous de Paris bezel, the hobnail pattern accentuates the lean architecture of the timepiece with an exciting contrast against the silvered dial. Measuring at 35mm diameter, the case offers a well-balanced wrist presence compensated by its elongated lugs. The reference was released with 500 pieces in yellow gold, 300 examples in pink gold and 400 pieces in white gold cases.

    A true connoisseur timepiece with rarified status, the present ref. 5039 in white gold stands out with distinction amongst its peers. Fitted with an exceeding rare blue sunburst dial, the present example is not only fresh-to-the-market, but is the first example known to surface the auction market. Offered by the original owner in pristine condition, the present example is accompanied by the Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin stating the dial in blue and is further delivered with an additional solid caseback and accessories.

  • 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.
