  • Catalogue Essay

    The present watch, reference 5105, was released to celebrate and commemorate the reopening of the Patek Philippe's Geneva boutique in 2006. Released in a limited edition of 100 platinum examples, the present watch is very rarely offered on the market.

    The production of reference 5105 is also accompanied by a very compelling back story. During renovation work, Patek Philippe employees found 100 pieces of calibre 9'''90 movements buried in a wooden chest. These movements, originally made in 1959, are now featured inside reference 5105 to celebrate Patek Philippe's illustrious history.

    The present watch is offered in excellent overall condition and must have been lovingly kept in a safe for almost ten years, only surfacing today for the enjoyment and appreciation of the watch community.

  • 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.
