Patek Philippe Power Reserve Ref. 5054J
They say you can’t have it all but this watch comes incredibly close.
Patek Phillipe is a brand that we are very familiar with due to its mastery in luxury watchmaking. This mastery and undisputed supremacy also stems from the consistency with which the company has applied its philosophy of excellence since it was founded in 1839. That spirit is embodied in the ten values that represent the essence of Patek Philippe and will continue to do so for generations to come: Independence, Tradition, Innovation, Quality and craftsmanship, Rarity, Value, Beauty, Service, Emotion, and Heritage.
We are very proud to have this Patek Phillipe 5054J from 1999 on offer. The dial of this reference provides an abundance of information such as the power reserve, moon phase, small-seconds, and of course the date complication. Filled to the brim with information, yet extremely legible and aesthetically calm, and thoughtfully balanced. This is all possible because the movement is powered by caliber 240/164, which you can admire when you flip open the case back. When flipped open you can understand the essence of the ten values. Time literally flies away when you stare at the 18k gold micro-rotor accompanied by the moving balance wheel.
This watch measures 35mm and is executed in an 18k yellow gold officers case, meaning that it features a round case, an enlarged crown, a hinged case back, and a white dial. It is equipped with an original Patek Philippe strap and buckle, together with the fact that the watch comes with the original box and 2023 service papers.
We happily invite you to come to our store and try on this watch.

Patek Philippe has devoted itself to the manufacture of complicated watch movements from the get go. In 1889, the Swiss powerhouse was the first to patent a perpetual calendar pocket watch mechanism. Then in 1902, a patent was filed for the first double chronograph. In 1923, they introduced the first split-second chronograph wristwatch. The first perpetual calendar wristwatch would follow in 1925.
And if you are this good at something, it only makes sense you try and push it to the max. In 1989, Patek showcased its Caliber 89. A whopping 33 complications crammed into a 1.1kg movement with 24 hands. Sensibly, they opted for the pocket watch form-factor, as this beast would not fit on even the biggest of wrists. It would be twenty-seven years before Vacheron Constantin took over the record of the most complicated watch movement.
Patek Philippe is famous for its world time calibers as well as its perpetual calendar chronographs. An example of their first iteration of the latter, the Ref. 1518 from 1941, was sold at auction in 2017 for an eye-watering $11.14 million.
Complicated Pateks are grail watches for many fanatical aficionados. Whether in vintage or modern guise, these are some of the finest examples of watchmaking you will find. A combination of mechanical magic, finishing artistry and timeless design mesmerize even the most seasoned of collectors.
