  • Catalogue Essay

    The reference 5140 came to market in 2006, replacing the previous reference 3940. Though Patek Philippe’s automatic perpetual calendar movement, the caliber 240 Q, remained intact, the case dimensions increased from a classic 36mm to a more contemporary 37.2mm. Additionally, the design and text of the dial were updated to match Patek Philippe’s other contemporary offerings and to allow for enhanced legibility. The slim profile, fluid and iconic Calatrava case, and practical function make for a highly desirable timepiece for the modern man or woman.

    Patek Philippe discontinued all the case metal and dial configurations of the reference 5140 by 2016, and replaced it with the reference 5327 which is currently in production. The present offering, encased in 18K pink gold and bearing a striking bronze-colored dial, was first produced in 2010. This example in hardly-worn condition and complete with its original paperwork and additional hard caseback offers an attractive proposition for those in pursuit of technical excellence, daily wearability, and subtle glamour.

  • 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.
