Lot Essay

Possibly a unique special order with a diamond-set black dial, the present watch is undoubtedly one of the most attractive specimens of the ‘Grand Complication’ reference 5013 ever to be offered at auction. Manufactured in the final year of production in 2010, its exclusivity resides in the Certificate of Origin-confirmed black dial which is set with 6 baguette diamonds and three round diamonds in rose gold settings. The combination of rose gold case and diamond-set black dial is highly unusual in any Patek Philippe model and provides a rich and ultra-luxurious aesthetic. According to our research, the present watch is the only example in pink gold with diamond-set black dial known publicly or to have been offered at international auction.

Reference 5013
Part of Patek Philippe's "Grand Complication" series, reference 5013 is the first minute repeating wristwatch featuring an automatic movement combined with a perpetual calendar and retrograde date. The retrograde date hand moves along a 270 degree arc and at midnight of the last day of each month, it flies back to the first of the month. During this precisely controlled fly-back phase, the hand is disconnected from the drive train and is cleverly captured back on the 1st of the month to ensure it does not slip forward by a day. At the time of its introduction in 1992, it was the firm's most complicated wristwatch ever made. It is fitted with Patek Philippe's legendary calibre R 27 PS QR, self-winding with minute repeating, distinguished by a chime of exceptional quality. Extensive researches in metallurgy and acoustics where necessary to achieve a sound of such perfection and unrivalled purity.
