Patek Philppe created the ref. 5100 to celebrate the year 2000 and is the first timepiece to feature a 10-day power reserve. Only 3000 pieces were produced: 1,500 in yellow gold, 750 in pink gold, 450 in white gold and 300 in platinum. The exclusivity of this watch is guaranteed as the case production tools will never be used again.
This is the first time a set of all four watches has been offered at auction.
