  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe launched the reference 5172 in 2019, following a long line of serially produced chronograph wristwatches and replacing its predecessor, the reference 5170. In 2022, Patek Philippe reinvented the existing model in their catalog by releasing the model in white gold with a salmon dial (or, according to Patek Philippe "rose opaline") so beloved by collectors. Displaying a case with multi-stepped lugs and a angled bezel, it boasts a diameter of 41 millimeters, giving it much presence on the wrist.

    The present lots marks the first time this dial and reference combination appears on the market, giving collectors an opportunity to acquire a timepiece which is normally only offered through a waitlist. It is furthermore offered in barely worn condition and a full set, with its certificate of origin, Patek Philippe catalog, presentation box and outer packaging.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
