Catalogue Note

Patek Philippe
Reference 5074 and 5013

When one thinks of attributes that excite collectors of Patek Philippe perhaps high on the list are pink cases, black dials and minute repeaters. Generally speaking they represent the least frequently found characteristics of Patek’s inventory. The overall aesthetic of a watch largely constitutes its case and dial and it must be accepted that there is no more pleasing combination than a crisp black dial and vibrant pink gold case. Add to this one of the most desirable and rare complications, the minute repeater, and you have a watch that will catch the eye of even the most discerning of connoisseurs. Suffice to say the following two lots feature all of these attributes, and to superb effect.

The first, the reference 5013 is one of the rarest complicated watches made by Patek and research shows that as few as 101 pieces were ever produced. Of these, perhaps 20 were forged in pink gold, 6 of which have been identified back to the market. Its tonneau form case provides a very satisfying vintage aesthetic, and was the first minute repeater to feature a self-winding caliber and calendar with retrograde display.

The 5074 is rarer still. Research suggests that less than 100 pieces were ever made and that as few only 8 pieces have returned to auction, and only one of these with a pink gold case. Released in 2001, it has a much sportier look and feel, with a large 42 mm circular case, this watch impresses further housing a perpetual calendar as well as a minute repeater.

百達翡麗
型號5074及5013

「粉紅金錶殼」、「黑色錶盤」與「三問時計」。這三種特質對百達翡麗收藏家而言極具吸引力,在品牌中非常稀有。腕錶的整體魅力來自錶殼和錶盤,乾淨利落的黑色錶盤配搭閃爍奢華的粉紅金錶殼引人注目;加上罕見的三問報時複雜功能,即使是最挑剔的鑑賞家也嘆為觀止。以下兩枚腕錶擁有上述所有特徵,超卓絕倫。

第一枚是5013型號,屬於百達翡麗最罕見的複雜功能腕錶之一,研究顯示產量只有101枚,20枚為粉紅金,當中只有6枚在市場上流通。酒桶形錶殼別具古典氣質,是首款搭配自動上鏈機芯和逆跳日期顯示的三問腕錶。

第二枚的5074型號同樣彌足珍貴。研究顯示產量不足100枚,亦只有8枚重返拍賣場,當中只有1枚以粉紅金作錶殼。2001年推出,2006年停產。大型圓形錶殼的直徑為42毫米,運動氣息濃厚,搭配萬年曆和三問報時功能,令人印象深刻。

Uniting two complications mastered by Patek Philippe, reference 5074 features a perpetual calendar and a minute repeater that stands out with remarkable sonority. Striking with incomparably pure sound, the watch features cathedral gongs that optimize the acoustic quality of a minute repeater. The cathedral gongs are shaped to encircle the movement not just once, but nearly twice, resulting in a rich tone with particularly long reverberation. Furthermore giving the watch better acoustic characteristics to produce melodious chimes of crystal-clear quality.

Due to the complexity of its movement, production for the reference 5074 is extremely limited to a very small quantity per year.

Complete with Certificate of Origin, additional case back, setting pin and presentation box, the present watch offers the finest acoustics and is enchantingly refined and is in excellent condition with hardly any wear at all.
