  • Catalogue Essay

    From the very first award winning ref. 5035 fitted with the caliber 315 S QA 24H in 1996, the annual calendar has been one of the most ingenious and useful complication that has been in the Patek Philippe collection for over 25 years. With the simplicity of indicating the day of the week, date and month and the delight of correction only once a year, it is an incredibly practical timepiece that can be worn everyday.

    In 2006, the firm launched the vintage-inspired two-tone sector dial ref. 5396 in pink gold, followed by white gold like the present example in 2008. Inside housed a caliber that features a Spiromax balance spring and a Gyromax balance-wheel. The monochromatic contrast of the silvered tone dial framed by the blue sector markings displays exquisite design proportions. The collection continues its brilliance by offering different displays and nuances of style, two years after its release, the reference took on a classic approach with applied indexes much like the reference 3448. Preserved in excellent condition, this is a perfect opportunity to own an early example of a modern classic.

    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.
