More about Retrograde 5059J Perpetual Calendar 18K Yellow Gold
This is an 18K yellow gold Patek Philippe Retrograde Perpetual Calendar 5059J. It has an Officer's style wide rounded bezel, yellow gold screwed bars, a white enamel dial and black oxidized gold feuille hands with a second sweep hand, 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 and the case is 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. 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 yellow gold fold-over deployment clasp. The 12.2mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. This Patek Philippe Retrograde Perpetual Calendar 5059J has a mechanical automatic self-winding caliber 315/136 movement that's rhodium-plated with Cotes de Geneve 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 5059J. 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 5059J was introduced in 1998 and it was discontinued in 2006.
