Lot Essay

With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in 1994 and its subsequent sale on November 1st of 1995. Further accompanied by a Patek Philippe case back, setting pin, leather folder, product literature and winding box.

Introduced at the Basel fair in 1993, reference 5050 was the first Patek Philippe wristwatch manufactured in series to feature a retrograde date.

First available with a silvered dial with applied Roman numerals, an aperture for the phases of the moon and outer railway minute divisions, growing demand from clients lead Patek Philippe to introduce a second series of the reference. The second version, such as the present timepiece, featured applied baton indexes, a modified moon phase display in form of a subsidiary dial, outer beady minute divisions and the addition of the designation “Automatic”. The third series was crafted with applied Roman numerals, pearled minute divisions and a moon-phase aperture.

Discontinued in 2002, reference 5050 is highly sought-after and considered as a modern classic. The present timepiece is furthermore offered in excellent condition and with all its accessories.
