    - 2nd series, such as the present watch: applied baton hour markers, pearled minute divisions, modified moon-phase display in the form of a subdial printed 'Automatic'

    - 3rd series: applied Roman numerals, pearled minute divisions, moon-phase aperture

    For further illustration of the reference 5050 please refer to Patek Philippe Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, 1998 edition, pp. 296 & 297.
