  • Catalogue Essay

    To celebrate the 150th anniversary of this remarkable relationship, Patek Philippe released the exemplary annual calendar reference 5150 in 2001. Inspired by round pocket watch with bassine-style case worn by officers of superior rank during WW1, the ref.5150 officer-style case with an unusual Louis XV style crown with elegant curves boost a subtle air of nostalgia.

    Unique to this reference, it features an aesthetic exception amongst the firm’s traditional annual calendar design. Under the creative involvement of Thierry Stern, the month is indicated as a numeral rather than the usual text form for the very first time. Graced with an oversized T (the wordmark of the retailer) at 12 o’clock and Tiffany & Co. signature sitting underneath the moon phases, the 5150 were made in a limited edition of 150 examples each in yellow, white and pink gold. Furthermore, the caseback is immaculately engraved with the façade of the original workshop in Geneva shared by the two during the 1860s.

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

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.
