  • Catalogue Essay

    Reference 5102, first launched in 2002, is an astronomical wristwatch that displays the principle of the celestial canopy. The watch features one of the most fascinating horological complications produced by the company. The dial displays the nocturnal sky of the northern hemisphere and rotates to show the apparent angular motion of the stars and moon as well as the progression of moon phases. The sky can be seen from all cities that share the same latitude as Geneva.
    The reference is now discontinued and subsequently replaced by reference 6102. This present watch is complete with original accessories.

    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.
