  • Catalogue Essay

    Combining a complicated mechanism with a stunning ruby-set bezel and lugs, along with ruby-set clasp, the reference 5271/12P is a wonderful symbiosis of haute horlogerie and joaillerie. Released in 2014 as a jeweled version of the reference 5270, this was the first model offered in platinum, and featured a black lacquered dial with ruby-set 12-hour marker.

    The Grand Complications watches by Patek Philippe are highly desirable and collectible and the reference 5271/12P embodies the spirit of these masterpieces. Produced in diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and rubies like the present watch, both the references 5270 and 5271 featured the caliber 29-535, Patek Philippe’s in-house movement, which replaced the Lemania caliber that had been used since 1986.

    This ruby-set perpetual calendar chronograph wristwatch remains factory double sealed. The present watch is new and as confirmed on the original certificate of origin, it has 89 baguette-cut rubies for a total of 5.3 carats.

    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.
