  • Catalogue Essay

    Presented to Children Action in 2007, the organization that raises money for child support throughout Southern American, Europe and South East Asia, Patek Philippe curated this one-off titanium reference 6000. It was back in 1980 that the first titanium wristwatch was launched and today, titanium is arguably one of the most sought after and trendy materials in watchmaking, due to its incredibly durable, light and corrosive-resistant quality. It is virtually unheard of to find a Patek Philippe cased in titanium. Including the current lot, there are 10 Patek Philippe titanium watches that have been offered on the market.

    This present titanium reference 6000 is extraordinary light and looks incredibly futuristic and sophisticated on the wrist. The reference has been completely transformed with a different dial configuration and grey centre finishing, which includes the subsidiary seconds.

    Consigned by an important collector, the watch is in pristine state of preservation and is complete with all accessories.

  • 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.
