  • 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.

Ref. 5101R-001
Art deco in design and feel, the reference 5101 embodies the DNA of truly remarkable Patek Philippe wristwatches. First launched in 2003, it was the first wristwatch that combined a double-barrel 10-day power reserve with a tourbillon and later that year, the 5101 won the “Aiguille d’Or”, or Golden Hand, prize at the Grand Prix d’Horologerie de Genève – the Grand Prix’s highest honour. Clean and discreet in its dial design it allows the owner to have the satisfaction of knowing the watches technical prowess without advertising it. The present example, found in superb condition is complete with full accessories including certificates and presentation box.
