Lot Essay

To the best of our knowledge the present lot is fresh to the market.

Christie’s is delighted to present this fresh to the market, extremely rare and highly coveted ruby-set variation of reference 5971P. This discreetly lavish and highly complicated platinum perpetual calendar chronograph with leap-year and day and night indication is set with 89 shaped and carefully matched baguette-cut rubies of approximate 5.3 carats and a single baguette ruby as the 12 o’clock marker on the dial. The lacquer black dial with sunken sub-registers requires 12 coats of lacquer to achieve the richness of finish and depth of black colour demanded by Patek Philippe. The highly exclusive ruby-set bezel, lugs and matching ruby-set deployant clasp embodies the ultimate excellence in watch making technology and haute joaillerie.

Made in only a very few examples, thought to be less than 10 pieces, this watch is an incredibly exciting find for Patek collectors, indeed, to the best of our knowledge only one other example is so far known publicly. Available only to Patek Philippe’s top clients, this ruby-set ref. 5271/12P-001 presents a significant opportunity for any discerning collector to acquire one of Patek Philippe’s most stunning modern high-complication timepieces.

Reference 5271
Patek Philippe revealed the new reference 5271 at Baselworld in 2014. A variation of the Patek Philippe 5270 Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, this ruby-set version in platinum features a black dial, the movement is Patek Philippe’s in-house calibre CH 29-535 PS Q that was granted the new hallmark of excellence, the PP seal.
