  • Catalogue Essay

    Tigers have played integral roles in ancient and modern folklore. For centuries, tigers have long retained a sense of intrigue and mysticism for their supremacy, solitary lives and audacity. They are also the national animals of Malaysia, South Korea, Bangladesh and India. Facing to the left, the tiger illustrated in the present watch is roaring, ready to make a rigorous strike against a hidden enemy. This lively illustration allows the beholders to experience vicariously the vigor and vivacity of the mystic creature.

    This series of watches with tiger cloisonné enamel dials is likely to be a dedication to the year of the Tiger, which occupies the third position in the twelve-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac system. This is the first time that the décor 016 is offered in the auction market. The present watch is likely one of the last examples of this aesthetically pleasing model manufactured by Patek Philippe.

    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.
