  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 2006, reference 5524 is without a doubt one of the most polarizing models made by the brand. At its inception, so wide was the stylistic gap dividing this model from all the rest of Patek Philippe's production that the entire community was taken truly by surprise. The model fills a niche in the Patek Philippe offering - that of Pilot timepieces - that had been disregarded by the brand for 175 year - with the exception of the two vintage pilot wristwatches, now residing in the Patek Philippe museum.

    Eminently readable and unarguably aesthetically striking, the present example is one of the very few specimens of this reference to bear the Tiffany & Co signature, furthermore confirmed - obviously - by the Certificate of Origin, and even still retaining the Tiffany outer packaging and shopping bag.

    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.
