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 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. We are proud to present both the versions.

 

A marvelous timepiece in more ways than one can imagine, the present reference 5951P-013 features the art-deco styled cushion case – a departure from the all-hyped Nautilus line as well as the more traditional round timepieces featuring all sorts of complications. This one is for true connoisseur.

Measuring at 37mm, the platinum case houses a black lacquered glossy dial on a solid gold base, with Breguet numerals and dauphine hands in white gold.

The dial displays the day / date, a monopusher split seconds chronograph and the perpetual calendar with moonphases and day / night indicators, all powered by the manufacture caliber CHR 27-525 PS Q hand-wound movement. CHR 27 is the thinnest split-seconds chronograph movement made till date and the perpetual calendar module is mounted on top of it. The view through the sapphire caseback is simply stunning. The overall finishing is impeccable, and the movement construction offers incredible 3-dimensional depth where one could easily go dizzy. The gears, levers, bridges, and the screws are all individually hand-finished and signed off with the PP hallmark of approval.

This gorgeous timepiece is offered on a hand-stitched black alligator strap with a platinum pin buckle.
According to our research from very reliable sources, the two references (5951p-012 and 5951p-013) were made in only around a dozen examples each.
