Lot Essay

Beyond its exceptional appeal as a perpetual calendar cathedral repeater, reference 5074 can be considered one of the most striking stylistic exercises by Patek Philippe. It seamlessly blends the design heritage of vintage horology with more modern solutions. The final result is nothing short of breathtaking.

The dial with its three subsidiary dials and no windows looks back at the timeless and supremely balanced design of the classic perpetual calendars of the past century, such as references 1518 and 2499. The lugs are unmistakably inspired by the celebrated reference 2499, with the outer top edge of each sculpted with a subtle groove. The blank sloped and stepped bezel, instead, is a trait typical of modern horology, as is its impressive size of 42 mm. Remarkably, the model manages to attain a momentous presence on the wrist without appearing excessive or gaudy. This also thanks to the black dial which, when coupled with the warm platinum hue of the case, grants the model an elegance rarely seen on timepieces of this size. The movement chimes the hours, quarters, and minutes on Patek Philippe’s celebrated ‘cathedral’ gong system that gives it a rich and pleasingly clear tone when striking.

The reference 5074 is one of the most technologically complex, aesthetically appealing and hard-to-find modern Patek Philippe references. Believed to have been made in less than 50 pieces in platinum.
