The reference 5035 debuted in 1996 and was made until 2005. This very model embarked on a significant journey for Patek Philippe’s watchmaking history, it is the very first watch with an annual calendar complication by the maison, which means it alternates between 30 and 31 days per month and only needs to be corrected at the beginning of March each year. It immediately gained attention and was awarded as the “Watch of the year” also thanks to its Calatrava style, it has been manufactured in 2500 pieces for each metal: yellow, white and pink gold, as well as platinum. Preserved in very nice conditions, the present pink gold example with concave lugs, screwed-down transparent case back shows nice proportions and deep hallmarks. The mat silver dial has applied gold luminous radial Roman numerals, subsidiary dials for the days of the week, the 24 hours, the months and an aperture for the date at 6. Powered by the caliber 315S QA, this 5035R represents a milestone timepieces for horology history and is sold with its original certificate of origin.
