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. Scholars seem to agree that about 220 pieces were made before being discontinued , 200 in yellow, white and pink and 20 in platinum. A great opportunity to purchase a complete white gold 5020, with only a few having ever appeared at auction.
