  • Catalogue Essay

    Stylish and bold, reference 5180 features a fully skeletonized movement and dial, along with a luxurious and lavish white gold rice grain bracelet. At the time of launch in 2008, it was an instant hit among the horological community. Patek Philippe's quality of production is second to none, and the bridges and components have been painstakingly hand-engraved, attesting to brand's commitment to excellence. Furthermore, the 39 millimeter case provides a hefty presence on the wrist.

    Preserved in excellent and barely worn condition, the present timepiece is complete with its original accessories, such as the certificate and presentation box.

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
