  • Catalogue Essay

    With a renowned reputation for creating extremely well executed and hand finished dials, Patek Philippe launched the reference 5089 as a series of hand finished dials ranging from miniature enamel and hand engraved dials reflecting the scenic Lake Geneva. The reference fitted with a classic Calatrava case houses the robust cal. 240 underneath the hand finished dial. Launched in 2014, the series was launched to commemorate the 175th anniversary of Patek Philippe, along with other grand complication models.

    The present example of a reference 5089G-016 features an elegant hand engraved white gold dial depicting Lake Geneva. The present watch is presented in unused condition and remains double factory sealed and further charmed by the complete set of accessories.

    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.
