  • Catalogue Essay

    To commemorate the 175th anniversary of the renowned manufacture, Patek Philippe has created wristwatches, pocket watches and table clocks produced as one-of-a-kind or in small editions to highlight the most legacies of the watchmaking tradition.

    The present reference 5089G-023 wristwatch features a finely crafted cloisonné dial depicting three soldiers from the Escalade celebrations. The cloisonné dial with hand-engraved background display strong vibrant colours and perfectly illustrates the most popular festival in Geneva. The watch is produced as a set of three to commemorate the heroic victory in 1602, when the people of Geneva repelled an attack by the Duke of Savoy. Further enhancing the present limited series, the watch is set with sapphire crystal case back protected by a hinged dust cover engraved with 'Patek Philippe Geneve 175e Anniversaire 1839-2014'.

    Still double factory sealed and limited to 40 pieces only, the watch is complete with original certificate and fitted presentation box.
