    With Patek Philippe winding box, Certificate of Origin, product literature, interchangeable fullback and corrector.

    Launched in Basel Fair 1993, reference 5050 was the first Patek Philippe perpetual calendar wristwatch to feature a retrograde date - a remarkable complication where at about midnight of the last day of the month, the date hand automatically disconnects from the drive train and instantly rebound to the first day of the month.

    Made until 2002, the total production number is estimated at around 1,100, cased mainly in yellow gold but also available in rose gold (lot 2326), white gold and platinum, all with an opalescent silvered dial.

    The model is illustrated in Patek Philippe Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, 1998 edition, p. 296 & 297.
