Description

Here is one of Patek Philippe's heavy hitters - the reference 5074 - featuring an oversized case, automatic winding, minutes repetition, perpetual calendar, and the preferred black dial. This is an awe inspiring watch, and In the upper-most echelon of collectable Patek Philippe watches. Patek's engineers had a specific goal for the reference 5074, to present collectors with the finest and purest repeating tone of any watch from any manufacture ever. Such an undertaking required not only extensive knowledge of, and research in, metallurgy and acoustics but also the combined learning of all of the preceding generations of Patek's master watchmakers, who kept meticulous notes on the construction of every preceding repeating caliber produced by the firm. When you hear the 5074's tone, you are hearing the culmination of 160 years of experience constructing the world's finest movements in a few short seconds. While the 5074 is considered the successor of the reference 3974. In fact, both watches share the same movement, except that Patek uses a Cathedral gong in the 5074 which produces a louder repeating tone. Patek launched the yellow gold 5074 in 2002. They introduced the rose gold 5074 at the 2005 Basel Watch Fair. Philippe Stern believes that rose gold produces the best repeater tone due to the porosity of the copper alloys. In fact, Mr. Stern reserved the rose gold minute repeaters for his best customers. Patek customers likewise consider the rose gold repeaters to have the best tone and consider them the most desirable repeaters. Not only is the 5074 a remarkable horological accomplishment, it is also gorgeous. The 18k rose gold case measures 41mm in diameter by 12.5mm thick. The combination of the rose gold case and black dial with rose gold hands and numerals has a unrivaled richness. Dial is black with applied rose gold arabic numerals and leaf style hands. The subdial at 3 o'clock displays month and leap year; the 6 o'clock subdial displays date and moonphase and the 9 o'clock subdial shows day and 24 hour time. Subdial hands are also leaf style, and the subdials are traced in gold. Movement is the Patek Philippe automatic winding Caliber R 27Q. This caliber features micro-rotor construction, Cathedral gongs, 39 jewels, power reserve of 48 hours, 467 individual parts, and is stamped with the Geneva Seal. Strap is hand-sewn Patek crocodile with an 18k Patek tang buckle. Watch is new with box and papers.
