  • Catalogue Essay

    The design of Patek Philippe’s reference 5124 takes inspiration from the brand’s famous 10-day tourbillon reference 5101 with its elegant stepped case, Breguet numerals and beautifully hand decorated form movement.

    The reference 5124 was launched in 2008, as part of Patek Philippe’s Gondolo collection of cushion, rectangular and square-shaped watches. The present example comes in white gold and features an attractive salmon dial, a configuration that was quickly discontinued, making it one of the rarer examples of this reference.

    Beating within is the manufacture caliber 25-21, its rectangular shape perfectly fitting the case.

    A superbly versatile watch, the present reference 5124 is incredibly appealing thanks to its graphic aesthetics, rectangular art deco stepped case, salmon dial, Breguet numerals and feuille hands. This watch has a devoted following among dandy collecting circles.
