    Property from an Important Private Collector

    Phillips in association with Bacs and Russo is delighted to present to the market one of the world's most important wristwatches. The Skymoon Tourbillon was first developed and manufactured by Patek Philippe in 2001, where much of the development and technology for the reference was inspired by the Star Calibre 2000. The watch is composed of 686 parts and 12 horological complications, making it one of the greatest and important models ever created by Patek Philippe.

    Since the introduction of the Skymoon Tourbillon in 2001, there has been less than 10 examples offered on the market in over fifteen years of watch auctions around the globe. This extremely small number indicates that Patek Philippe had an exceedingly small production run for the Skymoon Tourbillon.

    The present watch is factory sealed and has never been used nor worn. What further sets this watch apart from the others, is that it was made in the very last year of production. Phillips is delighted to have the opportunity to share this horological masterpiece with you.

    Comprising twelve complications, this Skymoon Tourbillon is fitted with a perpetual calendar, age of the moon, leap year cycle, day of the week, month, date, flyback, minute repeater, sky chart, moon phases and orbit. The reverse dial reveals the angular progression of the stars and moon from the Northern hemisphere and allows its user to observe the celestial chart of Earth's satellite.

    Sealed, accompanied by all accessories and Skymoon Tourbillon presentation box, render this Skymoon Tourbillon one of the most important watches in the world.

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.

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.
