Patek Philippe produced their first minute repeating wristwatch in the early 1920s, and has since continued to impress with their innovative designs and craftsmanship.
Reference 5033 was first introduced to the market in 2002, encased exclusively in platinum. The annual calendar minute repeating wristwatch remained in production until 2012. According to scholarship, less than 80 pieces of reference 5033P were produced, making this a very exclusive timepiece to own.
