A fine 18k White Gold Patke Philippe Perpetual Calendar Split-Seconds Chronograph replica 5004 Wristwatch with Moon Phases.

One watch that embodies everything about the Philippe Stern presidency is the Patek Philippe 5004, a reference that at current prices seems achingly good value. Quite simply this is more than a 3970 with a split second. This is the modern day 2499. After 15 short years during which production was halted to allow the watch makers to concentrate on a separate split-second calibre and perhaps a maximum of 12 per year being produced during that period this is a rare timepiece.

Introduced in 1996, Patek Philippe’s reference 5004 was in production for 15 short years only. This Patek Philippe perpetual calendar chronograph replica watch was, and still remains particularly special because it features a split second complication.

During this production period, Patek Philippe produced some incredibly special examples, some with gem-set stones, and others with special dials. The present watch is such an example, as it features a special salmon coloured dial coupled with Arabic numerals. The present watch is a unique example, likely made upon an esteemed client’s request and fashioned to his or her specifications. With the 5004 that is not a concern, demand has always outstripped supply and as the years pass the numbers available on the open market shrinks as strong handed collectors add them to their own.
And finally a nod to the greatest of all 5004s. To celebrate the retirement of perhaps one of the greatest modern Pateks’ and sold exclusively through its salon in Geneva, fifty examples were produced in stainless steel. Patek communicated no information on this model, but owner’s names were engraved on the glass of the case back to deter sellers. Rumours exist of higher production numbers, but no logic exists as to why Patek would reduce the impact of such a legendary piece and speaking to owners of these it seems hard to even name a tenth of the membership of this exclusive club. So there we have it, the modern day 2499 and one hell of a clever investment.

People often ask me why is the 3970 such value, and the answer is production numbers. What’s more, the premium to 5970 is also too small, fuelled by the love of that particular reference and its constant PR in the horological magazines and social media. A clever investor now pays the premium and buys a Patek Philippe 5004 watch replica.
