  • Catalogue Essay

    In celebration of their new Plan-les-Ouates facility, Patek Philippe issued a limited series of commemorative timepieces including a modern reiteration of their famed reference 2441 “Eiffel Tower” model from the mid-20th century. The new “Pagoda” line was produced in both a men’s and a lady’s versions with the lady’s reference 4900 made in very limited numbers of 500 examples in yellow gold, 150 in pink gold and 100 examples in white gold. The cases have a distinctive design with flared case and the lady’s model with diamond-set numerals.

    The present watch is in excellent overall condition and is an endearing timepiece for women 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.
