Catalogue Note

First introduced as a limited edition in 1992, the Reference 5000 was produced until 2002. Thanks to its classic size, screw-down back revealing the automatic movement and the eccentric subsidiary seconds between 4 and 5 o'clock evoking some early Patek Philippe pocket watches, the model was an immediate success.
