Lot Essay

The present ref. 5013P is an epitome of Patek Philippe's outstanding craftsmanship - the dial design is certainly one of the most attractive seen on this rare reference by Patek Philippe. The 'powerful' looking black dial with the sought after and attractive Roman numerals will not go unnoticed amongst collectors.

This charismatic dial was made on special request by the first owner - although the Certificate of Origin states that the dial fitted on this reference was the standard version of silver colour with Breguet numerals.

The present watch is one of the most attractive references 5013 - its desirability resides in the exclusive black dial, further enhanced by the extremely well-preserved condition. It is furthermore believed that only 45 references 5013P were produced from which 15 are identified back to the market. According to our researches, the present timepiece is the only example known in platinum with black dial and Roman numerals. Furthermore, the watch is offered with an additonal silvered dial.

Reference 5013
Part of Patek Philippe's "Grand Complication" series, reference 5013 is the first minute repeating wristwatch featuring an automatic movement combined with a perpetual calendar and retrograde date. At the time of its introduction in 1992, it was the firm's most complicated wristwatch ever made. It is fitted with Patek Philippe's legendary calibre R 27 PS QR, self-winding with minute repeating, distinguished by a chime of exceptional quality. Extensive researches in metallurgy and acoustics where necessary to achieve a sound of such perfection and unrivalled purity.
