Catalogue Note

The caliber R 27 PS is illustrated in Huber, M, Banbery, A, Patek Philippe Wristwatches, 1998, p. 320.

The Ref 5029 was launched in 1997 and made to commemorate the opening of Patek Philippe's factory in Geneva. The model was produced in a highly limited edition of 30 examples in three metals: 10 pieces in yellow gold, 10 pieces in platinum, and 10 pieces in pink gold like the present lot. 

This understated timepiece is dressed in the iconic Officier case, manufactured by the celebrated Jean-Pierre Hagmann, whose case maker’s mark, JHP, is stamped on the inside of the hinged case back.

This model combines the time honored tradition of minute-repeating watches with the contemporary desire for self-winding wristwatches. In order to fulfill both of these demands, Patek Philippe designed the cal. R27PS movement which utilizes an offset rotor to allow space for the minute repeating gongs. Ensuring the chime’s clarity of sound is a significant challenge in the creation of any minute-repeating timepiece. To meet this challenge, Patek Philippe tested a multitude of alloys, finally developing new acoustic steel for the sole purpose of minute-repeating gongs.
