Lot Essay

One of a limited series of only 10 pieces, the incredibly attractive stainless steel reference 5950⁄1A-011 with rose gold sunburst dial was only available on application and offered only to Patek Philippe’s most valued clients. To the best of our knowledge, the present watch is the first example ever to be offered at international auction. Furthermore, it is in immaculate condition and comes complete with the full set of accessories.

Launched in 2010, reference 5950 immediately soared to the top of the wish lists of collectors all over the world and is now almost impossible to obtain. To date, only four examples have returned to the open market since launch. It is powered by the calibre CHR 27-575 PS, introduced in 2005 with the officier-style split second chronograph reference 5959. Not only is this movement the first example of a chronograph calibre completely realized in-house by Patek Philippe it is moreover is the thinnest manually wound column-wheel split second single button chronograph movement ever designed by any manufacturer.

This movement, which can be considered a compendium of the best and most innovative horological technology available at the moment of its inception, is in contrast housed in an art deco-style watch obviously inspired by the very first split second chronograph wristwatches of the 1920s. The cushion-shape case, the typical dial layout with outer railway fifth of a second divisions and the two horizontal subsidiary dials, the Breguet numerals, the engraved motif at the corners of the dial (reprised on the movement as well, example of Patek Philippe's incredible attention to details), every little detail of the timepiece is devised with the open intention of sending the beholder on a time voyage back to the 1920s and 30s.

Last but not least, this model, arguably one of the most advanced and attractive examples of modern Patek Philippe production, features a stainless steel case. Highly complicated Patek Philippe timepieces in steel, either vintage or modern, are as unusual as they are avidly hunted down by connoisseurs.
