  • Catalogue Essay

    Featuring an extravagant two tone case in pink gold and stainless steel, the ref. 5980/1AR-001 is most definitely a striking iteration of the original ref. 5980 initially launched in 2006. The balanced contrast against the blue ribbed dial displays a harmonious marriage between sports and luxury. Introduced in Baselworld 2013, it is the first ref. 5980 to feature a two tone case.

    The present example is highly sought after in the market today and is offered in excellent overall condition and complete with the original Certificate of Origin. The present example is fresh to the market and the first example offered in Phillips auctions.

  • 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.
