Catalogue Note

Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming the date of sale on January 27th, 1999, Certificate of Origin, instruction manual and presentation case. Exemplifying the true art of watchmaking, the Ref. 5004 is the ultimate example of understated horology. The production of the Ref. 5004 commenced in 1995 and ceased in 2009, it was the most complicated model in Patek Philippe's line of chronographs for over a decade.

Composed of 407 miniscule parts, the watch houses a calibre CHR 27-70Q, and ingeniously combines a split seconds chronograph and perpetual calendar functions. The split seconds chronograph allows the simultaneous measurement of multiple events beginning at the same time and employs Patek Philippe's patented split seconds disengagement mechanism, accurate within a fraction of a second.
