The elegant and unmistakable Patek Philipe watches design has characterized the brand of Swiss-Polish origin throughout its history, but above all in the early years in which devoted itself to the production of shaped wristwatches. The reference 5101P, such as the present watch, distinguishes itself for its elegant Retro Art Deco-style stepped case and was released in 2003. The 10-Day Tourbillon ref. 5101P is another grande complication from Patek that embodies this mastery of haute horlogerie and it was the only one to feature a special-shaped caliber equipped with a tourbillon regulating organ and a power reserve of over three days, even indulging in the luxury of a total of ten days. The dial retains a beautiful color “Vintage rose” gold, applied black Breguet numbers, two vertical subsidiary dials for seconds and 10-day power reserve indication. Combining this rare peculiarity together with the remarkable and very unusual structure of the case neo-vintage in platinum, the logical conclusion is that the present watch is a very desirable object and deserves to be part of any collection that respects itself. This watch is also provided with its box and certificate of origin confirming the case material, caliber and the sale on the 16th of July in 2004.
