Part of the unmistakable Calatrava family, the reference 5120 was launched in 2001 in both pink and yellow gold. This timepiece has a minimalist design and is powered by the legendary micro-rotor automatic caliber 240 in its purest form and features an equally slim case. The bezel boasts a hobnail texture, a traditional Patek Philippe craft, which helps diffuse the light hitting the watch in a unique and elegant way. The classic white dial features a lacquered finish, which the Maison calls "Porcelain".


Sold in 2002, the present yellow gold example is offered on behalf of its original owner and accompanied by its original Certificate of Origin dated May 27, 2002 indicating a purchase at the Patek Philippe Geneva Salon, its original invoice and full documentation as well as its presentation case and outer packaging.
