Catalogue Note

The reference 5004 was released in 1994 and its production ran until 2009. Somewhat similar in appearance to the 2499 and 3970, the 5004 occupies a 36.5 mm case retaining elegant, vintage, proportions. This is especially noticeable when compared to the later editions of the perpetual calendar chronograph such as the reference 5970 which is significantly larger.

The 5004 does indeed feature similar complications too; the perpetual calendar, and the chronograph. There is however an additional, hidden, level complexity to the latter, this being the split-second function exemplified by the over-sized crown housing a third pusher. This model, alongside the reference 5070, marks the last complicated watch made by Patek Philippe to feature an out-of-house movement. 

While this watch is presented without its original box and paperwork it is accompanied by its solid platinum case back. Further to this, this reference 5004 is in original condition with crisp hallmarks the flutting to the lugs.
