  • Catalogue Essay

    Bearing the 015 décor, the dial of the present watch illustrates the life-like tiger in a dynamic attack position. The penultimate example of the 4-piece series, this is the first time that the décor 015 is offered in the auction market. The 013 and 014 pieces were sold at Phillips’ Hong Kong Watch Auction: Three in November 2016. While the 5076 series discontinued in 2007, the present watch is likely one of the last examples of this beautiful model manufactured by Patek Philippe. Complimented with a Certificate of Origin, this watch is a definite grail for avid watch collectors.

    It would not be an overstatement to call these two lots works of art for the wrist. Consigned by an important collector, these two wristwatches each contain a cloisonné enamel illustration of a life-like tiger in different postures, vividly depicted against a backdrop of tropical wilderness. The present watch, together with the subsequent lot, is part of a set of four wristwatches, each bearing a dial enameled by France Tille.

    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.
