Lot Essay

One of the stand-out Patek Philippe special-order watches that are the jewels in the crown of the Champion Collection, this probably unique reference 5020 with stunning confirmed brown dial and with the great exclusivity of its own reference number - 5020J-016, can be considered to be one of the most important examples of the already extremely rare reference 5020 cushion-shaped perpetual calendar chronograph. Almost certainly made by special request as an ‘out of series’ piece with unique brown dial, its highly individual aesthetic places this watch as one of the most desirable of Patek Philippe’s 21st century perpetual calendar chronographs. Furthermore, it is preserved in like new condition and is accompanied by the full set of accessories.

The standard production 5020 – manual winding perpetual calendar with chronograph, was introduced in 1994 and discontinued in 2002. The case of the present watch dates from 1994 and its movement, caliber 27 70 Q dates from 2010. Therefore the case is from the first year of production but the movement was made almost 8 years after production of the 5020 ended. Such ‘out of series’ watches were created using new old stock cases with movements that are unrelated in date. They were usually made on the specific instructions of Mr. Stern for very special clients, such as the owner of the Champion Collection. The probably unique brown dial and the fact that this watch was provided with a specific individual reference number confirm its legitimacy as a fully formed model in its own right and as such, an extreme rarity and prize catch for the Patek Philippe collector.

Reference 5020 was available in yellow, pink, and white gold, as well as platinum. It is believed that only 750 examples of this reference were ever made in total. Thanks to its generous proportions and distinctive shape, reference 5020 is easily distinguishable from other Patek Philippe wristwatches and takes a unique position in the production of perpetual calendar chronographs.
