  • Catalogue Essay

    The following two lots, consigned by an important private collector, illustrate the wonderful creativity at the world renowned firm of Patek Philippe. It is Patek’s tradition to create unique, one-of-a-kind sets of cloisonné enamel wristwatches paying homage to the relevant Chinese zodiac sign. The following two lots are dedicated to the year of the Tiger, which occupies the third position in the twelve year cycle of the Chinese calendar. People born in the year of the tiger are thought to be very independent, brave, powerful, confident, easy to trust and born leaders.

    Each watch has been crafted by hand and depicts a pair of mirror image tigers, which have been created amazingly well that they appear life-like and display strong vibrant colours. Offered in close to new condition, each watch still retains its original certificate, sales tag and offer the most astute collector the chance to acquire one of these amazing works of art by Patek Philippe.

    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.
