Lot Essay

Successor of the legendary 5102, reference 6104 elevates the prestige of this rare model with its 38 baguette-cut diamonds to the bezel (approximately 4.27 carats) and upgrades the dial with a date chapter ring without overshadowing the mesmerizing sky chart to the center of the dial. Fresh to the market and offered here in pristine condition, this coveted timepiece is most definitely a "star lot" amongst the Patek Philippe family of wristwatches.

Reference 6104 was launched in 2010 and is today still in production. This astronomical wristwatch borrows the principle of the celestial canopy from the most complicated wristwatch ever produced by Patek Philippe - reference 5002 Sky Moon Tourbillon. The nocturnal sky of the northern hemisphere rotates to show the apparent angular motion of the stars and moon as well as the progression of the phases of the moon. Hours and minutes are displayed by two pierced white hands. A delicate elliptical contour on the inside of the glass frames the portion of the sky that can be seen from all cities that share the latitude of Geneva.
