Replacing the reference 5039, reference 5139 was released in 2008 and features a very traditional perpetual calendar layout, powered by the automatic calibre 240/114. Aside from the Officer's-style straight lugs, it is most notable for the "Clou de Paris" pattern, a fine ring of engraving on the bezel which adds depth and sophistication to the wrist. It is also 2 mm bigger than the previous reference.
