Description

Patek Philippe made the first ever wrist watch with the split-seconds complication in 1923. The watch featured a monopusher split-seconds chronograph and a white enamel dial encased in a 30mm yellow gold case. It was sold for USD $3M at an auction in 1999.

This piece inspired the gorgeous reference 5959, which was launched in 2005 and featured the incredible Patek Philippe hand-wound Calbire CHR 27-525 PS, which at the time, was the world’s thinnest monopusher split-seconds at only 5.25 mm in thickness.

This legendary reference was soon replaced by reference 5950 launched in 2010. An application piece since its birth, this retro masterpiece featured an art-deco style cushion-shaped stainless steel case, paying tribute the historical pieces of the 1920s. An instant hit among the collector community, the 5950 was as artistic, as it was complicated, with applied Breguet numerals, grooved sub-dials, a railroad minute track and the corners of the dial engraved and filled.

Around the same time, Patek Philippe introduced the  present reference 5951P-001 adding a perpetual calendar to the split-second complication. This reference was discontinued in 2013, to make way for the gorgeous 5951P-013 (black dial) and the 5951P-012 (white dial), both launched in 2014, and made only for one year.

 

The present reference is the Patek Philippe 5951P-001, it is a part of the esteemed Grand Complications collection, is a masterpiece of horology that exemplifies the brand’s commitment to unparalleled craftsmanship and aesthetic elegance. This exceptional timepiece is encased in a 37mm platinum case, a noble metal known for its rarity and prestige, ensuring that the watch not only exudes luxury but also stands the test of time.

At the heart of the 5951P-001 is a manual winding movement, meticulously crafted to Patek Philippe’s strict standards. This movement is a testament to the brand’s technical prowess, offering not only precise timekeeping but also a range of complex features that cater to the discerning watch enthusiast. These include a perpetual calendar, a moon phase display, and a 24-hour indication, all seamlessly integrated into the watch’s design.

The dial of the 5951P-001 is a work of art in its own right. It features a black opaline background, providing a striking contrast to the white gold applied hour markers and hands. What sets this model apart are its vibrant red chronograph hands, which add a dash of color and character to the watch. These red hands are not just visually striking; they also enhance legibility, making it easier to read the chronograph measurements at a glance.

Completing the luxurious appeal of the Patek Philippe 5951P-001 is a hand-stitched alligator strap with a platinum buckle, ensuring comfort and security on the wrist. This strap complements the watch’s sophisticated design, making it suitable for both formal and casual occasions.
