Patek Philippe 5050G, Perpetual Calendar, White Gold


This Patek Philippe 5050G is distinguished by its simple, yet distinctive, retrograde mechanism, displaying the date near the centre of the dial, with day and month apertures on either side. Originally introduced in 1995, the retrograde date is considered one of the most difficult complications to execute, combining both exceptional mechanics with aesthetic simplicity.
