  • Catalogue Essay

    Reference 5105 was launched in 100 pieces in 2006 to celebrate the reopening of Patek Phillipe’s historical salon in the heart of Geneva after renovation.

    Acquired by Patek Phillippe in 1891, the Salons on the Rue du Rhone building was totally renovated by acclaimed architect, Jacques-Elisée Goss (1839-1921). In 1907-1908, a fifth floor was added - a project undertaken by Henri Goss, son of the original architect and the last main renovation of the historic building was finalised in 1996 with the stately Salon Napoleon III being carefully restored to reflect its original style.

    The reference 5105 with its streamlined Art Deco case and two tone dial is a superb tribute to Patek Philippe’s ref 492 from the 1930. The movement housed within is a vintage 9'''90 manufactured in 1959 which was, according to legend, discovered in an old wooden chest before the watchmaking department moved to Plan-les-Ouates in 1996.

    Furthermore, the tooling for the manufacturing of the case were discarded so Patek Phillipe would never remake this case shape again.
