  • Catalogue Essay

    When it comes to the art of enameling in timepieces, the first to be mentioned would often be Patek Philippe, with no surprise. Since the beginning of the 17th century, enameling was highly demanded to adorn watchcases and dials. Regarded as an endangered craft today, Patek Philippe carries on the tradition with flying colors.

    Requiring extreme precision, concentration and artisanal craftsmanship, the substance of enamel is incredibly hard to work with. A substance based on silica sand, the enamel is transparent and is colored via metal oxides crushed into fine power and mixed with water to create a paste. Once applied on the surface and dried, it is inserted inside a kiln and heated with extremely high temperatures exceeding 800°C. With that said, the slightest imperfection on the surface developed during its heating process would mean that the dial would have to be redone again, until the perfect example is achieved and thoroughly examined before it is eligible to be encased in a Patek Philippe case.

    Introduced at the Baselworld 2010, the Patek Philippe ref. 5077P-058 features a beautiful polychrome cloisonné enamel dial depicting a motif of the Native Indians of the Great Plains. Displayed on the dial is a Native Indian on a horse galloping through the dessert plains outlined by fine gold wiring known as “clossons” with vibrant colors filling in the details of the beautiful and delicate motif. Furthermore, the hands are styled with the inspiration from Indian feathers, which fits subtly into the motif providing a unique touch to the specific reference.

    Presented in excellent overall condition, the present example is further accompanied by the original Certificate of Origin from Patek Philippe and its fitted presentation box. With a beautiful presence on the wrist, it is a great opportunity for lovers and collectors of enamel timepieces to acquire an attractive and rare example intricately crafted by the master enamellers of Patek Philippe.
