Patek Philippe watches have always been recognized as the collectable piece par excellence. 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 special piece here offered has been realized in platinum and is preserved in almost unworn conditions. The most important feature is the spectacular dial with silvered turned into a rosè color and absolutely rare white-gold Breguet numbers and hands for both time and subsidiary dials. Inside the moon phase dial. The perfect combination of the platinum case, silvered dial, black lettering and gold details is 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 Original Box, Booklets, Time Machine, Setting Pin and Certificate of Origin confirming the material, movement and dial, make this watch unique in its kind.
