First introduced in 1995, the reference 5020 had a dial and case reminiscent of a 1960s television set, which is why this is sometimes referred to as the Patek TV set watch.
The reference 5020’s avant-garde design and tasteful proportions sets it apart from other perpetual calendar chronographs created by the brand. At the time of its launch, reference 5020 was too unconventional for Patek Philippe’s clientele and only elicited tepid response. Consequently, production remained extremely limited, making the model exceptionally scarce. Today, the reference is highly popular and sought-after thanks to its rarity, iconic look and complex movement.
Instantly recognizable and eternally classic, with time rendered the model has become one of the most collectable and coveted perpetual calendar chronograph models created by Patek Philippe.
