This is an 18K Rose gold Patek Philippe Retrograde Perpetual Calendar 5059R-017 showcased at the London Saatchi Gallery in 2015. It has an Officer's style wide rounded bezel, Rose gold screwed bars, a brown sunburst dial and gold oxidized gold feuille hands with a second sweep hand, applied gold Roman numeral hour markers, and a minute rail around the circumference with a slightly domed sapphire crystal. It's a perpetual calendar with indications of hours, minutes, seconds, date, and day, an adjustment for leap year, and a moon phase sub dial at 6:00. The date window is at 12:00. The perpetual calendar will adjust exactly for short and long months as well as leap years. The retrograde arc on the dial also tells the date. The alligator leather strap has a matching 18K rose gold fold-over deployant clasp. The 12.4mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. The Patek Philippe Retrograde Perpetual Calendar 5059R has a case that's made in four pieces; it has sculpted lines with a hinged half-hunter case back that springs open with the flick of a thumb to reveal a flat sapphire crystal display back. This unidirectional, mechanical self-winding calibre 315/136 movement is rhodium-plated with fausses cotes embellishment and the Seal of Geneva mark of quality. The renowned movement mechanisms were saved from Patek's 5050 perpetual calendar watches to outfit this hunter case 5059R. It's constructed with 31 jewels, a straight-line lever escapement, a shock absorber mechanism, and a 21K gold central ball-bearing rotor. The mechanism oscillates at 21,600 vph, and it has a self-compensating free-sprung flat balance spring. It also has the patented Gyromax balance that compensates for cold, heat, isochronism, and five positions. The power reserve is 46 hours and it's water resistant to 25m. The Patek Philippe Retrograde Perpetual Calendar 5059R model was introduced in 1998 and it was discontinued in 2006. This model was re introduced in 2015 to commemorate the opening of the Saatchi Gallery in London.

I have been dealing with European Watch Company for over ten years, and have purchased several wrist watches, including IWC, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Jaeger-LeCoultre. They were not only fairly priced but arrived in like-new condition, fully warranted by European Watch Company. This company has an attentive, knowledgeable staff, a large inventory, and is a genuine pleasure to deal with.
Just completed my 7th transaction with EWC and for the 7th time the transaction was smooth, flawless and quick. Joshua is quick to respond to any e-mails and answer any questions. Ashley knows how to complete the necessary paperwork to avoid any delays at Customs as I am located in Canada and all paperwork needs to be completed perfectly which she is an expert at. You only want to deal with the best and the team at EWC is the best. There is a Yiddish word to describe the people at EWC and that word is mensches which translates to people of integrity and honour.
After a lengthy search I located the Patek Philippe I desired at EWC, but the decision to make a high dollar purchase over the internet was a difficult one. Through numerous emails with Justin and looking at reviews of EWC I made the decision to proceed and I am now ECSTATIC. The watch is exactly as described and pictured. It was perfectly packaged and shipped FedEx overnight. My watch collection now includes the watch I have been seeking for over a year.In summary, you can deal with the EWC staff with confidence. They are professional, honest and you will receive a quality watch which will put a smile on your face.
I live in San Francisco but the EWC website is the first place I check once I get an impulse for a particular watch. EWC's website is cozy and feels like home. I enjoy the photos, presentation, description and historical notes of each item and really like their next day delivery, so I stay loyal to them. Sometimes I must wait awhile for a watch to become available but can usually find anything I want. Then there are the watches you never knew you wanted until you see them here.
Dear EWC, I have just completed my very first purchase with your company: a mint Lange Datograph. Robert was extremely help throughout the process with the item delivered nicely packed to my Hong Kong address within days. The condition of the watch was absolutely mint as described and has exceeded my expectations, even under a loupe! I will be a return customer in no time. Well done!
