The reference 5004 is an embodiment of Patek Philippe’s ideology of exclusivity, exemplifying a masterful craftsmanship finished with utmost perfection. Released in 1994 and in production until 2009, the design of reference 5004 deems similar to the references 2499 and 3970, though the reference 5004 features an enlarged case of 36.5 mm in order to house the highly complicated functions within. Consisting of 407 components, the Lemania based calibre CHR 27-70Q empowers a stunning split seconds chronograph on top of the already impressive perpetual calendar. Exhibiting a somewhat vintage look, the reference 5004 is extremely compact and is held at high regards by collectors and connoisseurs.
Complete with all original accessories including Certificate of Origin, additional case back and presentation box, the present watch is offered in like new condition.
