In 2006, Patek Philippe introduced the reference 5140 perpetual calendar as a replacement for the legendary 3940. Since this time, there have been 4 or 5 variations of the 5140 from different dial variations to different case combinations but Patek Philippe has never interfered with the supreme calendar work that made the 5140 one of the most classic wristwatches made by the firm today.
The watch has seldom been worn and is offered in close to new condition. The watch is furthermore complete with all original accessories.
