  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe is renowned for their legendary line of perpetual calendar wristwatches with moon phase dating back to 1941 with the release of the first serialised model, the reference 1526. Complicated and sublime in its “Calatrava” style case, this model was the first in a series of important 20th century timepieces demonstrating Patek Philippe’s excellence in horology. The reference 5136 was released in 2003 as a new perpetual calendar wristwatch for the new millennium, and an upgrade to the reference 3945, which was first introduced in 1987 with bracelet, and a larger, more contemporary case design.

    The reference 5136 was available until 2008 in both yellow and white gold with superb, detachable gold bracelets, powered by the automatic caliber 240Q movement with microrotor. The present example from circa 2004 is accompanied by the original Certificate of Origin, and stamped Beyer Chronometrie AG. The reference is rarely seen in the marketplace with only approximately 20 known examples.
