Lot Essay

The Ref. 5004 was Patek Philippe’s first serially produced split-seconds perpetual calendar wristwatch. Produced between 1996 and 2012, it is one of the most important high complications the Geneva brand produced in the modern era. Powered by a Lemania-based movement, the watch was produced in four metals during its 16-year run – yellow gold, pink gold, white gold, and platinum, the rarest of the lot is of course, platinum.The 5004 was eventually replaced by Ref. 5204, which was unveiled during Baselworld 2012.
