Vintage wristwatches with chronographs or perpetual calendars cased in stainless steel are amongst the world's scarcest timepieces in the field of watch collecting. In fact, no other manufacturer other than Patek Philippe is known to have ever made steel wristwatches with this complex calendar mechanism prior to the 1980s. Some of the world's most coveted watches such as the mythical reference 1518 or 1526 in steel have broken world record prices as they are part of the ultimate "achievements" in watch collecting. It comes to no surprise that Patek Philippe has translated its vintage successes into modern realities, and such is the case with the present reference 5004 in steel.

This watch, absolutely fresh to the market and for the very first time ever offered at auction here at Christie's, is an exceedingly rare example that until today, was never made available to the public and only offered to Patek Philippe's most loyal clients.

This reference 5004 impresses by its pristine condition, offering bold striking looks. The combination of steel and the rarity it represents for this model, including the freshness to the market render it a true collector's watch for the years to come.
