With Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated 22 September 2011, product literature, instruction manual, sales tag, pouch, leather wallet, slip case, fitted presentation box and outer packaging.
The present rare watch is for the first time seen at auction here at Christie's and therefore is fresh to the market. Furthermore, this timepiece is in unworn condition.
The present reference 5077 was part of a set of 4 watches with cloisonné enamel dials when first offered to Patek Philippe's important clients in their prestigious Geneva boutique.
The rarity behind this reference 5077 is its cloisonné enamel dial, hand-engraved under translucent enamel and "paillonné" enamel (spangling under transparent enamel). The creation of each dial requires up to 7 firings, using 7 to 10 different enamel colours and gold ribbon of 0.10 mm. for making the partitions. A master enameller and engraver dedicate approximately 7 days of work to create such works of art.
