Property of the original German owner. Ref. 5020 The so-called "TV Watch" (1995-2001) Reference 5020 is fitted with caliber 27-70 Q, like the famous Ref 3970. Due to its unusual shape and its similarity with the more traditional 3970, it was not produced in large numbers. Ref. 5020 was available in yellow, pink, and white gold, as well as platinum. This example complete with all its accessories was sold in 2000, shortly before it was discontinued even though the Patek certificate code indicates 1994 which actually makes it the 8th case number produced. The watch was not popular upon its launch and many examples such as this one remained unsold for years (in this case 6 years) before collectors understood its rarity.
