Footnotes

  • The Ref:5050 was Patek Philippe's first perpetual calendar wristwatch featuring a retrograde date made in series and was introduced at the Basel Fair in 1993, cased in yellow gold only. From 1995 onwards it was also available in pink gold, white gold and platinum but still exclusively with the silvered dial.

    Production of the Ref:5050 was stopped in 2002 and is today a highly sought after model for collectors.
