    Accompanied by a Patek Philippe winding box, certificate, manual and corrector.

    Reference 5059 was introduced in 2002 to replace the reference 5050 (see lot 2649 and 2990). Reminiscent of its predecessor, the reference 5059 possesses the intriguing complication of a perpetual calendar mechanism with retrograde date hand, and is one of the few perpetual calendar wristwatches with centre sweep seconds. Furthermore it is united with another venerable Patek Philippe tradition - the "officer's"-style case featuring a hinged gold dustcover that protects the crystal display back.

    The model was available in all precious metal (see lot 2982 for the rose gold version) with Roman numerals on a porcelain-white dial. Production ceased in 2006 and was replaced by the reference 5159.
