  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe always celebrates important anniversaries and has done so throughout its 175 years of history. Whether it is the anniversary of a relationship with a celebrated retailer or advancement in watch manufacturing, the completion of a new factory or celebrating their own boutiques, Patek Philippe always rises to the challenge. They develop and release to the market unusual and beautifully crafted collector’s watches. The following 7 lots are dedicated to Patek Philippe and the limited editions they manufacture.

    The present watch, reference 5150, was created to commemorate the relationship with Tiffany & Co., which is its longest retailers and partner. Their relationship has started since 1851 and in order to celebrate the 150th year of business together, Patek Philippe has created the reference 5150 in a limited edition of 150 examples each in white gold, yellow gold and pink gold. This annual calendar wristwatch, cased in pink gold, features a big ‘T’ at 12 o’clock and ‘Tiffany & Co.’ on the moon phases indicator, which gives a double seal of confidence. Thanks to their well-established relationship, Tiffany & Co. remains to be the only retailer today that has been granted the honour of printing their name on some of the Patek Philippe’s dials.

    Fresh to the market, the watch also features a robust officer’s case that retains a somewhat vintage feel, further enhancing its desirability amongst collectors.

  • 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.
