  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe Calatrava ref. 5000G was launched in 1992, initially produced as a limited edition of 1000 piece in white gold only until 1994. Boasting a clean profile and sublime simplicity, the dial features a rich black canvas with white Arabic numerals and classic railway track. The reference later released different variants in yellow gold, pink gold with black and white dial, as well as a limited edition of 100 pieces for retailer Hausmann & Co’s 200th anniversary with Breguet numerals. Powering the watch is the calibre 240 with micro-rotor and features an excentre subsidiary dial at 5 o’clock similar to very early Patek Philippe pocket watches. Preserved in excellent condition, the present example from the early production is accompanied by the Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming its production in 1992.

  • 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.
