    Produced from 1994 to 2010, the reference 5016 remained the most complicated watch ever produced by Patek Philippe until the firm introduced their 'Sky Moon' in 2001. Its central retrograde date is a very appealing feature of this reference, which it shares with the reference 5013, 5050 and 5059 and 5159, along with the calendar layout and moon phases combined with constant seconds. The present watch has a powerful looking black dial with the much sought after and attractive pink gold Breguet numerals which will not go unnoticed amongst any collector.
