  • Catalogue Essay

    Today, more and more women appreciate the appeal of a complex movement, especially if it is combined with the wondrous appeal of a truly fine look. For them, Patek Philippe combined the best of both worlds by creating the reference 4958 with a moon phase – one of the most romantic and poetic complications. Featuring a beautiful mother-of-pearl and guilloché dial, the present watch exudes a sense of decorum and elegance unlikely to be missed by watch lovers. The center of the dial is guilloché with a wave pattern that contrasts gorgeously with the softly shimmering mother-of-pearl surround in white. Made of dazzling, brilliant-cut diamonds, the attractive bezel further completes this sophisticated work of art for the wrist.

    Adding an element of intrigue, the present watch has a simple but unusual dial layout. The moon phase display is easily legible in its prominently large aperture at 4 o’clock. The diamond hour markers, the slender numerals, and the leaf-shaped hands accentuate the elegance of the watch.

  • 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.
