    With Patek Philippe presentation box, Certificate of Origin and product literature.

    This timepiece combines the intricacies of mechanical complication with the stunning luxury of diamonds and platinum. Perfectly set with 36 flawless rare white Top Wesselton baguette diamonds of an impressive 4 carats in total, Reference 5971 is the ultimate in horological aesthetics. This outstanding timepiece features the most quintessential of complications - the perpetual calendar, chronograph and moon phase with day night indication. The CH 27-70Q calibre, manufactured by Nouvelle Lémania, is considered by many connoisseurs to be the epitome of classic column wheel chronograph engineering. Testimony to the prestige of this timepiece is that Patek Philippe considers the Reference 5971 as their only Haute Joaillerie watch in the Grand Complications category.

    The present watch is the second example of the reference 5971P to appear at auction to-date. The first example was sold at Christie's Hong Kong on 3 December 2008 for HK$ 2,160,000 (US$278,000).
