  • Catalogue Essay

    The reference. 5159-012, much like the remaining 4 pieces in the collection, features a striking, retro-fused officers-style case, reminiscent of the trench watches of World War I. It is also designed with a hinged back engraved with the ‘London 2015’ logo, screwed lug bars and a Breguet-style numerals dial.

    This 18K white gold, perpetual calendar timepiece features a silver dial with retrograde date, leap year indication and stunning moon phases in excellent, rarely worn condition. It comes with the original certificate, Patek Philippe wooden presentation box and adapters, and setting pin. This watch is the first of this limited series to appear in auction, to our best knowledge.

  • 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.
