Introduced in 1998 to replace the ref. 5050 and produced for only 8 short years, the present 5059 shares with its sibling the same self-winding caliber 315 S-QR. The lot offered here is a specimen in yellow gold with four-body hinged case back, rounded band and bezel, and straight lugs with gold screwed bars, all in exceptional conditions. The dial is white with painted radial Roman numbers, retrograde date and moon phases with feuille hands. The retrograde complication forces the hand to fly back to its original starting point, a very difficult function to put in a watch. Furthermore, it is offered with its original certificate, booklets and setting pin.
