Lot Essay

US$170,000-250,000

With Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated 27 December 2007, additional case back, setting pin, instruction manual, product literature, fitted presentation box and outer packaging.

The present reference 5004 offered here for sale is preserved in excellent overall condition.

Deriving from reference 3970 which is the true and legitimate successor to the mythical reference 2499 (please see lot 5008), reference 5004 embodies not only the essence of Patek Philippe's design legacy of the post war decades but also the savoir faire of their skilled master watchmakers who managed to add another highly complex mechanism to a traditional sized watch without disturbing its proportions. To many collectors, reference 5004 is one of the greatest wristwatches ever made and is often mentioned as the watch with the most promising future on the market.


Manufacture of reference 5004 was launched in 1994 and is today discontinued and replaced by reference 5204 released in March 2012 at the Basel Fair.

Reference 5004 is illustrated in Patek Philippe Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, second edition, p. 312.
