  • Catalogue Essay

    - The Patek Philippe ref 5212A, unveiled at Baselworld 2019, is undoubtedly one of the finest releases from the manufacturer in recent years. In a departure from their usual complications, this watch showcases the brand new calibre 26-330 S C J SE, which includes a groundbreaking weekly calendar, a first in Patek Philippe's history.

    - The dial may appear intricate, but the five centrally mounted hands create a harmonious visual appeal that balances all the displayed information. Unlike Patek Philippe's traditional designs, the calendar features a completely new typography, with the font based on the handwriting of one of the brand's designers, lending a unique touch to this exceptional timepiece.

    - On the other hand, the double-stepped lugs immediately bring to mind the cases of vintage Patek Philippe watches, drawing inspiration from the unique Patek Philippe ref 2512 which is now sitting in their heritage museum.

    - Positioned as an entry-level complication within Patek Philippe's current lineup, this watch serves as the perfect dress watch for both formal dinners and casual occasions, making it a must-have piece for watch connoisseurs.

  • 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.
