Lot Essay

Reference 5100
Produced in a limited edition, reference 5100 was launched in 2000 to celebrate the new millenium. The prestigious Geneva maker made a total of 3,000 pieces of reference 5100: 1,500 examples were made in yellow gold, 750 in pink gold, 450 in white gold, the 300 in platinum with a flawless Top Wesselton diamond set between the lugs at 6 o'clock.

What makes this watch a modern take on its predecessor, apart from its size, is also the employment of a power reserve for the amazing duration of 10 days. Conveniently for the wearer of the watch, the mechanism will keep running up to ten days straight without requiring the daily or perhaps 36 hours winding necessary for ordinary timepieces.

Reference 5100 is Patek Philippe's first model featuring a ten-day power reserve. Made in a limited edition, this watch can never be recreated exactly as the firm destroyed the tools that were necessary for making the reference to preserve its limited-edition distinctiveness and make sure the model will never be made again.
