Lot Essay

US$900,000-1,500,000
With Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated 9 January 2003, instruction manual, product literature and slip case.


Fresh to the market, the present exceptional watch is in outstanding condition.

Given the excessively high level of rarity and exclusivity of this model, including its absolute freshness to the market, the present watch must be considered as a significant opportunity for any discerning collector to acquire this landmark reference.

The present masterpiece is composed of 686 parts which come together to form 12 of the most consequential horological complications; the tourbillon, perpetual calendar, moon age, leap year cycle, day of the week, month, date, fly back, minute repeater, sky chart, moon phases and orbit.

The reverse dial reveals the angular progression of the stars and moon from the Northern Hemisphere and allows the wearer to observe the waxing and waning of the Earth's satellite. This horological monument of mechanism was based on the astronomical module developed for the ground-breaking Star Caliber 2000 (please view lot 2952).
