  • Catalogue Essay

    From the year 2000, special editions of reference 5110 World Time wristwatch were released, featuring particularly interesting and sometimes unique location or time zone dials. For example, we know of the ‘Mecca Emerald Green’, the Munster, Singapore or Taipei editions, whereby one city would be highlighted in a different colour by special request. This particular example features Doha in red which replaces Moscow.

    This particular watch would have been made by special request by the government of Qatar, possibly for visiting dignitaries or as gifts. The watch is therefore accompanied by the relevant matching paperwork confirming the special edition dial and box, and remains unopened in its factory plastic seal.

    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.
