Here is the huge one! Soon after Laurent Ferrier and Kari Voutilainen (and furthermore Tudor that is coming with a one of a kind version of the Black Bay), it’s now an ideal opportunity for Patek Philippe to present its novel watch for Only Watch 2015 – and be completely mindful of a certain something: THIS IS A KILLER WATCH. In view of a Ref. 5016, this stand-out version is combining brief repeater, a tourbillon and an unending schedule with retrograde date. The rewards: a stainless steel case and a lacquer dial. Here is the Patek Philippe Ref. 5016A-010 for Only Watch 2015.
Not that we didn’t like the past watches that are to be sold by Phillips Watches in Geneva on November seventh, 2015 – we really liked the Laurent Ferrier Galet Square with Sector Dial and the excellence of the Kari Voutilainen watch which can’t be crushed – however the exceptional release by Patek Philippe made particularly for Only Watch 2015 is first ,and will without a doubt be the one that will break all the records and it’s likewise a genuine complicated, very good quality and magnificent watch – a watch that we didn’t anticipate seeing any longer… Let us explain.
The Patek Philippe Ref. 5016 WAS quite possibly the most complicated Patek watches – if not THE Patek magnum opus – for certain years, until Patek chose to remove it from the assortment and to present another reference with similar complications and a similar base development, the Ref. 5207. The Ref. 5016 was underway somewhere in the range of 1993 and 2011. It’s very amazing yet great to see the Geneva-based assembling restoring a particularly old reference for an extraordinary piece. Already, Patek were using one of its current references for Only Watch – like the titanium Ref. 5004 of every 2013 or the Ref. brief repeater in stainless steel in 2011. Presently Patek is burrowing out one of its most extraordinary releases. Finding a Ref. 5016 is now a serious test as the whole creation is assessed somewhere in the range of 200 and 300 pieces. Presently because of the Only Watch 2015 you get the opportunity to possess an extraordinary and shiny new release of this grand watch yet we are certain you will require VERY profound pockets to get it.
The Patek Philippe ref. 5016A-010 Minute Repeater Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar for Only Watch 2015 shows anyway a couple of contrasts with the classical release – that was accessible in white gold with a white dial, in pink gold with a dark dial or in yellow gold with a white dial. In the first place, this interesting piece will come with a blue dial – a tone never seen on this reference. At that point, its dial will be made of grand-feu polish, something additionally one of a kind to this Only Watch version. At last, some little subtleties like the uneven environmental factors of the windows of the day, the month and the jump years are new. For the rest, we found a solid Breguet motivation back with the applied numerals and the hands with emptied tips. This watch may highlight a tourbillon, much the same as each Patek Philippe with such a complication, you’ll only have the option to see it on the back side.
The dial shows the hour/minute on the focal pivot, a little second and the moon-stages in a sub-dial at 6. The never-ending schedule is shown by windows (for the day of the week, the month and the jump year) and simply like the Patek Philippe Ref. 5496P-014 Perpetual Calendar Retrograde we assessed beforehand , the date is shown through a retrograde hand.
The instance of this unique Patek Philippe ref. 5016A-010 Minute Repeater Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar measures (like the genuine 5016) a little 36.8mm – a size that we’re not used to see any longer in contemporary watchmaking (even its successor, the Ref. 5207, measures 41mm). The Calatrava style case comes here in stainless steel.
As you can expect, not just this watch comes for certain great highlights (Tourbillon controller, Perpetual Calendar and Minute Repeater) however it likewise implies that it brags one the most pleasant development at any point made by Patek Philippe. The completion and look of this Caliber is simply staggering and characterizes the word haute horology impeccably – each perspective is hand-completed and carefully controlled and assembled.
Such Ref 5016 ordinarily arrive at 500.000 Euros on auctions – yet here we’re talking about regular creation pieces. As to ongoing costs came to by special or uncommon Patek Philippe watches, we can expect this ref. 5016A-010 Minute Repeater Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar in stainless steel for Only Watch 2015 to be sold for north of 3.000.000 Euros (and unquestionably even substantially more). It will be part of the Only Watch good cause closeout of 43 novel watches occurring on 7 November 2015 in Geneva, it will be offered to raise assets for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
