Essay:

Reference 5565 was made in a limited edition of 300 examples in stainless steel. Inspired by Patek Philippe's celebrated reference 565 from 1938, reference 5565 - which was exclusively available in the Geneva Salons - features a stainless steel case and the highly attractive two-tone silvered dial. Reminiscent of the dials from the period, it combines a vertical satin finish center combined with applied black nickel-plated gold Arabic and baton numerals. Its movement is the famous calibre 215 PS, developed in the early 1970s and much appreciated by collectors. The design of the sleek case is derived from the famous reference 565, the screw back is decorated with an engraving of Patek Philippe's building on Rue du Rhône and the inscription "1839-1892-2006", commemorating three key dates in the firm's history.
