  • Catalogue Essay

    To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the relationship between Patek Philippe and one of their most prestigious retailer, Gübelin, a special edition of the ref. 5134 were released in 2004. Evidently, the retailer’s signature is proudly positioned in parallel with the Patek Philippe designation on the dial. A total of four variants were also made, with 40 examples in platinum, 50 examples in yellow gold and 45 pieces in pink and white gold. A celebration of two powerhouses, Patek Philippe is known to only design special anniversary pieces for a handful of its trusted retail partners and notably, Gübelin is one of Switzerland’s oldest and most esteemed retailers founded in 1854.

    This platinum variant dressed in black is superbly elegant, the silver print and the subtle finishing on the dial matches perfectly with its white gold hour markers and silvered second-time-zone hand. Turning the watch over, the caseback once again celebrates the retailer’s heritage by proudly presenting “GÜBELIN 1854 - 2004" that encircles the Patek Philippe in-house movement.

    Presented in excellent overall condition and accompanied by its original Gübelin accessories, this platinum Calatrava Travel offers a fantastic opportunity for collectors to own such a rare and elegant timepiece.
