  • Catalogue Essay

    Fused with traditional Swiss artisanal craft and technical excellence, Patek Philippe’s cloisonné enamel art has been the brand’s heritage jewel celebrated by esteemed collectors. Only the most skilled artisans were able to execute a beautiful and unique cloisonné enamel dial. It requires microscopic detailing by hand, small enough to create a finished portrait on the dial. The craftsmanship and man hours needed to create a cloisonné enamel dial to Patek Philippe standards is a painstakingly long process.

    Launched in 2003, the reference 5076 had an array of enamel dial designs, mostly in series of four depicting boats on the Leman lake, fishes or like the present series Chinese Zodiacs.
    Zodiacs sign have been an important element in the Chinese tradition and are based on a twelve-year cycle with each year represented by a different animal. These cycles have existed for more than 2000 years beginning with the Qin dynasty and identify an individual’s year of birth as well as an element to worship in the Buddhist religion.

    To celebrate the Chinese zodiac, Patek Philippe created sets of four watches each representing the 12 zodiac signs, with each set manufactured during the year of the zodiac indicated on the dial. A symbol of punctuality, bravery and the fresh beginning of a new day, the Year of Rooster themed ref. 5076 cased in a perfect frame of the elegant platinum rectangular Gondolo case sets a grand canvas for the animal. Flourished with flower motifs auspicious colours in red and violet, the gold wires shaped Rooster dances in celebration. Produced in 2005, the set features four different dials, each in a different color. Perfectly preserved, it is the first time all four editions have been offered in the same sale. The Year of Rooster set has never appeared in the market before, making this the first time collectors can get their hands on the fresh-to-the-market set with its Certificate of Origin and accessories, the present example is definitely a beauty for the connoisseurs with an appreciation of artisan timepieces.
