In production from 1995 to 2003, the reference 5041 is undoubtedly the rarest and probably the least produced modern perpetual calendar. With a total production believed to be from 30 to 40 units only, the ref. 5041 (available in white gold only) had various minor differences in comparison to its sister reference 5040.
- The bezel: while reference 3940 has a rounded bezel, this reference has an enlarged, at bezel. - The dial: only available in black on reference 3941, its differences lie mainly in the outer minute markers (rather than a rail track, it has simple dot markers) and the Breguet numerals rather than Arabic numerals.
