  • Catalogue Essay

    The present watch is fresh to the market and offered by its original owner. Furthermore, comparative analysis of the movement and case number of this watch points out that this is a very early example, probably only the 19th produced.

    Created to celebrate the advent of the new millennium in 2000, reference 5100 combines a groundbreaking 10 days movement with an extremely elegant and intriguing case design deeply rooted in the company’s history.
    The 10 days energy reserve is supplied by two massive mainsprings, whose equally massive jewels are well noticeable through the glazed back; this was the first time in the history of watchmaking for a wristwatch to feature a 10 days power reserve.
    The case design is inspired instead by a historical reference: ref. 2442, nicknamed “Manta Ray” as the flared side of the case with the recess for the crown is highly evocative of the enormous fish. In fact, to avoid any misunderstanding regarding the provenance of the inspiration, a picture of the animal is present in the promotional material.
    Realized in the three gold colors and platinum, all versions are limited editions, with the platinum one being the rarest and most sought-after: out of the 3000 pieces made, only 300 examples are in platinum.

  • 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.
