  • Catalogue Essay

    With the new millennium, Patek Philippe offered to collectors a wristwatch that was both technically challenging and wonderfully rendered. The reference 5100 was their commemorative limited edition wristwatch with 10-day power reserve in a flared “Manta Ray” styled cased. The movement featured two tandem mainspring barrels to achieve 240 hours when fully wound. In 2003, Patek Philipp released the reference 5101P 10-day wristwatch with tourbillon. Encased in an elegant elongated rectangular with stepped flanks and strong Art Deco vibes, this model embodies the notion on haute horlogerie. Patek Philippe has a restrained design aesthetic, which often means a seemingly time only watch can often to be much more than appears and the 10-day tourbillon wristwatch offers collectors a contemporary modern wristwatch. The platinum example was replaced in 2009 with a pink gold version, which was replaced in 2011 in white and in 2012 by a yellow gold version.

    The present reference 5101P is factory sealed and complete with certificate of origin and presentation box.

Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand.
