Catalogue Note

Launched in 1994, the 5020 is also known as the TV screen due to its particular cushion-shaped case. The reference was only in production for about 8 years and was available in yellow, pink or white gold, as well as platinum. The reference was a commercial failure at the time and fewer than 200 pieces in total were made, and only 7 pieces in platinum are known to have been made during this 8 year period.

This example, without any shadow of doubt, can be considered the most important 5020 ever to appear on the market and this is the 8th known example. What renders this example fantastic is the special blue dial with Breguet 12, tachymetre scale and luminous numerals and hands. This dial is further signed with the monogram of the original owner at 6 o'clock. In addition, the watch is fitted with a heavy removable Patek Philippe platinum bracelet. All of these attributes not only make this watch unique and they are also confirmed on the original Certificate of Origin.

Unlike any previous reference 5020 known, the present watch is consigned by an extremely important and prominent collector, who always displays a well-demonstrated and sophisticated taste when selecting watches for his collection. Presented in extremely excellent condition, this watch faithfully embodies Patek Philippe designs and legacy and is arguably the most important 5020 ever.
