Footnotes

  • Introduced in 1995 the 5004 was based on the reference 3970 perpetual calendar chronograph, the successor to the iconic 2499.

    Adding the split second function to the already highly intricate calibre 27-70 required a total of 407 hand finished components, making it one of the most complicated Patek Philippes ever produced. It is believed only 12 examples where manufactured each year before being discontinued in 2009, although a short run of an additional 50 examples was produced in stainless steel in 2011.

    Since superseded by the larger reference 5204 and the cushion shaped single button chronograph 5951, the 5004 represents one of the finest examples of understated haute horology due to its compact dimensions and conservative design. Considered by many collectors to be the ultimate execution of the chronograph complication from one of the greatest manufacturers, the 5004 has only increased in desirability since the last examples were produced.

    This particular example offered in the attractive classic combination of silvered dial with Arabic numerals, dates from the first series of production with a movement number between 879501 and 879999.
