    With Patek Philippe slip case. Furthermore delivered with Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch with cream dial, 3 Arabic numerals and baton-cut indexes in yellow gold and luminescent coating in 2005 and its subsequent sale in 29 August 2005.

    To the best of our knowledge, the present watch is fresh to the market.

    Introduced in 2005, reference 5146 replaced reference 5035, now featuring a moon phase display instead of the 24 hour indication and a power reserve. It is fitted with the patented annual calendar mechanism. This useful complication automatically corrects the date for months with 30 and 31 days while displaying the month and the day of the week - and only requires correction once a year at the end of February.
