Catalogue Note

The reference 5004 was first launched in 1996 and then later discontinued and replaced by its successor, reference 5204 in March 2012 at the Basel Fair. Reference 5004 was originally inspired by the profound reference 3970 perpetual chronograph, hence the physical resemblance of both references. That said, the reference 5004 consists of a very difficult split-second chronograph function which made the manufacturing process incredibly challenging. Due to that,  Patek Philippe was only able to  produce 12 of such references per year. Unlike any previous reference 5004 with "special dials" that has appeared in the market before, the present watch is consigned by an extremely important and prominent collector who displays a well-demonstrated and sophisticated taste when selecting watches for his collection.

Presented in an undoubtedly superb condition, this watch embodies Patek Philippe's design and legacy. It is arguably one of the most important 5004s to have appeared in an auction in recent years.
