We’re thrilled by this unique creation by Patek Philippe for Only Watch 2015. Combining three "grand" complications prized by collectors - a tourbillon, minute repeater, and perpetual calendar with retrograding date, the reference 5016 was made between 1993 and 2011.
Reintroduced as a "pièce unique" specifically for Only Watch 2015, this special 5016 features a gorgeous blue enamel dial with applied gold Breguet numerals - an unprecedented configuration for the historic firm. It is also the first and only version of this watch to be produced in one of the rarest and most coveted metals for a complicated Patek Philippe watch - stainless steel. Measuring 36.8 mm in diameter, the 5016’s Calatrava-style case is appreciated by collectors due to its modern yet timeless proportions.
One of the Only Watch charity auction of 43 unique timepieces taking place on 7 November 2015 in Geneva, it will be sold to raise funds for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
