  • Catalogue Essay

    Quiet yet confident, the Calatrava ref. 5000J is a classical yellow gold wristwatch that offers distinctive Patek Philippe detailing and balanced proportions. First debuted in 1992 as a 500-piece limited-edition in white gold, the ref. 5000 was later released in both yellow gold and pink gold. Discontinued in 2004, the present example is most likely the last of its kind.

    The model’s immediate success was not only a tribute to its ideal size but also its sapphire case back that reveals the inner workings of the automatic movement, with emphasis on the cal. 240 featuring a micro-rotor. The present example offers a delicious black dial adorned with hand-applied bassine style Arabic numerals, an internal railway minute track and eccentric subsidiary seconds in yellow gold. The potent combination of these features is a harmonious marriage between the maker’s early pocket watch aesthetics and today’s effortless modern design.

    Do not be fooled by its slim, discrete profile. This three-handed dress watch is a small giant that holds a strong wrist presence while being a versatile timepiece that can fit into any dress cuff or tight sleeve. Offered in excellent overall condition, this Patek Philippe Calatrava 5000J is a timeless piece accompanied by its Certificate of Origin and further supplied with an Extract from the Archives.

  • 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.
