Fresh to the market, this reference 5059 is in new old stock condition, still in the originally sealed plastic pouch. It has furthermore never been offered in public before.
Reference 5059, introduced into the market in 1998, possesses an intriguing complication: a retrograde date display. The date is indicated by a hand progressing along a 240 arc located within the hour scale between 8 and 4 o'clock. Around midnight on the last day of each month, be it the 28th, 29th, 30th, or 31st, the hand automatically jumps back to the numeral 1.
Reference 5059 was discontinued in 2006 and replaced by reference 5159.
