Patek Philippe watches have always been recognized as the collectable piece par excellence. Over the years it has happened that prominent personalities directly demanded from Patek Philippe the creation of some special specimens made specifically for them. In 2014 the former president of Walt Disney, Michael S. Ovitz asked and obtained a few special watches like the present lot. The reference 5040 was introduced in 1992, remain in production until 2007 and during that time, Patek offered this reference in yellow, white, and rose gold, in addition to platinum. This reference is the first tonneau-shaped with a perpetual calendar model in a 1930s-inspired case measures 36 mm × 43 mm, still remaining to the classic and timeless styling, and the same caliber, the 240Q, which has been used for decades. The unique piece here offered has been realized in precious platinum and is preserved in unworn conditions, still sealed in its box. The most important feature is the spectacular dial with blue color and absolutely rare Breguet numerals. Inside the moon phase dial, slightly above the dates 15-17, is located the special logo with printed the initials of Michael S. Ovitz. The perfect combination of platinum case, blue dial, white lettering and Breguet indexes are sensational and this alone would be enough to make this watch unmissable. If then to the uniqueness of the watch is added the character to which it belonged, the presence of the additional solid case back and its leather book warranty makes this watch unique in its kind.
