An extremely rare and important pink gold double dial wristwatch with

cal. R TO 27 QR SID LU CL double dial manual winding movement ,stamped with the Geneva Seal, 55 jewels, one minute tourbillon, two polished hammers minute repeating on two extra-long steel alloy 'Cathedral' gongs, revolving governor with pierced and engraved bridge in the form of a Calatrava cross opaline white front dial with embossed Patek Philippe Calatrava cross motif, applied rose gold Roman numerals, chemin-de-fer minute ring, 4 subsidiary dials indicating day of week, month, leap year cycle and ages of the moon displayed in pink gold, retrograde date display in red enamel, reverse dial of sapphire crystal glass with celestial map, outer ring with pink gold 24-hour Arabic numeral scale for sidereal time, cardinal points framing the rotating sky chart of Northern Hemisphere and display of angular motion of moon and its phases  18k pink gold case with two polished bezels, screw-set down-turned lugs, case band and minute repeating slide finely engraved with halved Calatrava crosses, two crowns both embossed with a Calatrava cross for winding and setting, four small recessed buttons for correction of the front dial displays  case, dial and movement signed  with an 18k pink gold Patek Philippe buckle Accompanied by a Patek Philippe special leather folder containing the Certificate of Origin, Rate Accuracy Certificate and Instruction Manual. Further accompanied by a pink gold setting pin, a presentation box and black Patek Philippe leather strap.  Widely accepted as the most important wristwatch manufactured this century, the Sky Moon Tourbillon, ref.5002 was launched in 2001 as Patek Philippes most complicated wristwatch and the first by the company to feature a double dial. Inspired by the Star Calibre 2000 pocket watch featuring a complex sky-chart, Patek Philippe were able to miniaturize the concept to fit into a wristwatch. It is reported only 2 examples are manufactured each year. Such is the complexity of the 686 parts movement, including a tourbillon adjusted to run within a high precision rate of -2/+1 seconds maximum daily variation. Bearing twelve complications in this double-dial mechanical wonder, ref. 5002 is the first most complicated wristwatch that Patek Philippe has ever produced.  With all the astronomical indications including retrograde perpetual calendar with moon phases indication, indication for the meridian passage of Sirius (the brightest star in the sky), age and agular motion of the moon and sidereal time, celestial chart of the northern hemisphere, horizon ellipse, the ref. 5002 represents the human civilization by understanding the relationship between earth and the universe. The Cathedral minute repeating mechanism is twice as long as classical gongs, which produces a richer sound and longer reverberation. Historically, the gong production needs years of dedication and expertise in order to have the gong circle the movement twice accurately that it does not touch other parts. Reserved only for their most important clients after meeting stringent qualifying requirements, suitable applicants must first pass an interview prior to being entered on to the extensive waiting list. When the ref. 5002 was launched in 2001, at that time, a 43.5 mm diameter case was considered massive and the possibility of a watch consisting of 12 complications was unthinkable, yet as technology and horology has evolved, over a decade later, the Skymoon still stands out as one of the greatest wristwatch manufactured in the 21st century.

Named with the unique and previously unrecorded reference number 5001 T, this magnificent wristwatch utilizes Patek Philippe’s most complex wristwatch movement calibre that is housed in a specially commissioned Titanium case with bespoke ‘basket-weave’ (panier) dial. The Ref. 5001 is a bespoke variation on the firm's famed Ref. 5002, which was produced in platinum, yellow, white and pink gold. In the same manner that collectors of vintage watches fall into a collective swoon upon the discovery of a vintage perpetual calendar wristwatch cased in stainless steel, so too will future generations delight over the discovery of the present exceedingly complicated watch in titanium.   The ‘Sky-Moon’ is typically known to Patek Philippe enthusiasts under reference 5002, yet the present watch shines a new light into the development of the model. This unique 5001T wristwatch features several design elements that set it apart from its well-known successor, the Ref. 5002 ‘Sky Moon’. These include a bespoke dial configuration and case design. A summary of the major differences are given below: • Titanium case • Broad satin finished bezel with Roman numerals • ‘Basket weave’ dial without applied numerals • ‘Basket weave’ case sides • Celestial chart with non-standard elliptical sky view • Celestial chart with full, un-abbreviated cardinal points • Movement number and ‘tourbillon’ writing concealed from month dial • Sidereal time without numerals for 11, 12, 13 At first glance, one is immediately impressed by the 5001’s bold titanium case, which lends a surprising lightness to an otherwise extremely heavy watch. The broad bezel with engraved Roman numerals and ‘basket weave’ case sides lend the watch an entirely different character to its cousin, the 5002. The 5001’s dial does not have hourly applied numerals and this accentuates the handsome, red retrograde date sector which takes over the dial’s edge. Another interesting detail is the lack of movement number to the subsidiary month dial – on the reference 5002, the watch’s movement number is printed to the dial. The ‘basket weave’ pattern to the case sides is repeated to the main body of the dial and again adds to the 5001’s unique character – interestingly the 5002 features Calatrava crosses to the case band and dial. When viewing the 5001’s sky chart, one is instantly struck by the cardinal points which are unabbreviated: East, North, West, South – the 5002 instead has the letters E, N, W, S in their place. As ‘South’ is written out in full within the Sidereal time calibrations at the edge of the dial on the 5001, the numerals for the Sidereal hours of 11, 12 and 13, are not shown – on the 5002’s celestial chart dial, ‘South’ is simply marked ‘S’ and only replaces the Sidereal time’s 12 o’clock numeral, that of 11 and 13 both being present. The ‘Sky-Moon’ movement is registered by Patek Philippe as calibre RTO 27 QR SID LU CL and, with 12 complications and 686 parts, is the most complex Patek Philippe movement ever to be designed and incorporated into a wristwatch. However, Patek Philippe’s motivation for designing the ‘Sky-Moon’ was less about the number of complications and was instead focused on incorporating the most pleasing and exciting horological complications into a single, elegantly constructed timepiece. The Sky Chart with its orbiting moon is without doubt one of the most visually pleasing and intricate horological complications ever seen. The chart takes its inspiration from the legendary Patek Philippe Star Calibre which Patek Philippe revealed in 2000 and which itself drew inspiration from three other Patek Philippe behemoths, the Packard no.198.023, Henry Graves Supercomplication no.198.385 (completed in 1932 and re-sold at Sotheby’s New York, December 1999) and the Calibre 89, released to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Patek Philippe in 1989. The Sky-Moon’s sky chart of the northern hemisphere rotates counter-clockwise beneath a sapphire crystal with a golden ellipse that frames the part of the sky visible from a specified location and displays the motion of the stars, the meridian passages of Sirius and the moon and the waxing and waning of the moon phases. The edge of the sky chart’s dial is calibrated for sidereal time in 24-hours. The extreme precision and complexity of the display is breathtaking and, when Ref. 5002 was revealed for the first time in a wristwatch at the 2001 Basel Fair, it created a sensation among the horological community. A complementary piece to the Ref. 5002, the Ref. 6002G, was unveiled in 2013. The watch features apertures for the perpetual calendar instead of hands with a blue grand feu enamel dial, all within a heavily engraved gold case. Chiming watches have always amazed and delighted the user and remain one of the most coveted of complications. The wristwatch poses a particular challenge since, unlike the pocket watch, its relatively small size does not naturally allow for the production of a chime that is clear, loud and strong. However, prior to the Sky-Moon’s production, Patek Philippe had consulted intensively with metallurgists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne. The result was the production of an extremely refined alloy that allowed for extended gongs which produced an especially long and resonant chime within the wristwatch case; these gongs are known as ‘cathedral gongs’. It is fascinating to note the tonal subtleties of the chiming in a titanium case. The perpetual calendar is, of course, another highly desirable complication and so it is no surprise that the Sky-Moon incorporates this feature to its front dial. However, the complexity of the perpetual calendar on this watch is enhanced by the addition of a large retrograde date sector that forms an arc from 2 o’clock to 10 o’clock. At the end of each month, no matter the number of days, the date indicator will automatically jump across the dial to show the 1st of the following month. In order to compensate for positional errors while the watch is worn, the movement incorporates yet another horological marvel, this time in the form of a tourbillon. Today the tourbillon is another of the most desired elements in ultra complicated watches and the Sky-Moon’s tourbillon comprises 69 individual parts alone. In the Sky-Moon, this complication is given another layer of complexity by the placement of the balance wheel and fourth wheel on one axis. This is a layout that is hard to accommodate but which allows for a more effective deployment of the tourbillon’s principles. Undoubtedly one of the most important contemporary wristwatches in existence, this unique Ref. 5001 offers an extremely rare opportunity to own a truly distinct Grande Complication wristwatch representing the pinnacle of fine watch making. The Ref. 5001T achieves the monumental task of exceeding even the Ref. 5002 in its horological importance. Without a doubt, the Ref. 5001T represents the most important complicated wristwatch thus far of the Third Millennium.

An important and early silver and gilt-metal oval astronomical verge watch

• gilt brass oval full plate movement, verge escapement, three-wheel train, engraved border, plain flat balance, ratchet set-up, fusee and gut line • engraved dial plate, applied silver chapter ring with red Roman numerals, pierced rotating central disc with blued steel ground indicating the time, silver chapter ring with days of the month indicated by a blued steel bug mounted on a revolving gilt metal centre pierced and engraved with the months and the corresponding signs of the Zodiac, to the left: wedge shaped aperture for day of the week with engraving of the ruling planet, apertures for lunar date above moon-phases, further small aperture for planet hour to lower right, the days of the week and planet hours with fixed blued steel hands indicating direction of disc rotation, further fixed hand by lunar date aperture • engraved scenes to the case covers from Ovid’s ‘Metamorphoses’, the front with putto beneath holding a tablet with engraver’s signature ‘De Heck Scul’, the inside of the upper cover engraved with the Royal Coat of Arms of King James I, the inside of the back cover with engraved miniature of King James after Simon de Passe, case band depicting Chronos supporting an hour-glass and Saint James the Greater with a petasus hat holding his sword and surrounded by flowers and foliage, heightened with red wax, gilt metal pendant in the form of addorsed reptiles • movement signed David Ramsay Scotte Me Fecit This magnificent watch was made by David Ramsay, one of the finest early makers and the first Master of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers at its formation in 1632. Born in Scotland c. 1585, he went to work in France, arriving in England in about 1610, at the request of King James I. Ramsay was appointed chief clockmaker to James I in 1613, on a much higher salary than his predecessor, see Loomes, the Early Clockmakers of Great Britain, p.456, seemingly a clear indication of how highly he was regarded by the King. The engravings to the covers are taken from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, a putto beneath the scene to the front holds a tablet engraved: De Heck Scul. Gérard de Heck was an outstanding engraver and was active between 1608 and 1629. Inside the cover, the Royal Arms are engraved with King James’s favourite motto: “Beati Pacifici” (Blessed are the Peacemakers). To the inside of the back cover is a wonderfully engraved portrait of King James himself, after an engraving by Simon de Passe. The original engraving was used as one of the plates in ‘Bazilologia’, a series of portraits of British monarchs first published in 1618, see, Hugh Clayton, Royal Faces, HMSO, 1977, p.30. De Passe was living in England between c.1616 and 1624, see, Hugh Tait, The Art of the Goldsmith, 1984, p. 70. This evidence would point to a likely date of execution for this watch of 1618 or shortly thereafter. The engraving is framed by the Latin inscription: “Potentis Iacobus D.G. Magnae Britanniae Hibernia Galliae Rex Fidei Defensor” – which translates as: “The mighty James D.G. The King of Great Britain, Ireland, France, Defender of the Faith.” A similar watch by David Ramsay can be found on permanent loan at the Victoria & Albert Museum. The case of that watch features scenes from St. Luke's Gospel and a portrait of King James I to the inside cover which is after the same engraving by Simon de Passe. These watches were presumably made around the same time by order of the King. A third watch, similar to the above, signed David Ramsay Scotus me Fecit is in the collection of the National Museum of Scotland. It is possible that the present watch was commissioned as a gift for another family member. For example, as the Metamorphoses are to a large extent tales of the love adventures of the gods with nymphs and the daughters of men, it would perhaps have been a suitable present to give to Frederick V (1596-1632), Elector Palatine and King of Bohemia, husband of James's daughter Elizabeth, see Camerer Cuss, The English Watch 1585-1970, p. 35.

The “Flamingo and Lotus” automaton clock combines two Cartier motifs within an impressive, glamorously gem-set work of art.  Cartier’s Lotus automata clocks arose during the 1980s during an age of decadence and sumptuous design in Mystery Clocks.  For a similar example of Cartier Lotus automata clock from the 1980s, see Barracca, J., Negretti, G., and Nencini, F., Le Temps de Cartier, p. 305.  Perched alongside, the bejeweled Flamingo is synonymous with the royal history of Cartier.  This dazzling motif hearkens back to the magnificent and famous Flamingo brooch formerly in the collection of the Duchess of Windsor, which was purchased by Collection Cartier for £1,721,250 / US$2,678,954 at Sotheby’s London in November 2010.

A unique and highly important perpetual calendar silver and enamel

MOVEMENT Especially fine quality, long gilt rectangular four bridge movement, signed Patek Philippe and numbered on the balance cock, additionally with retailer's name, moustache lever escapement, bi-metallic compensation balance, jewelled up to the centre wheel, the central bridge in the form of a number 1, grained steel perpetual calendar work under the dial with trigger mechanism for setting the bird to sing at 12. Movement size 62mm x 19.5mm. DIALS Three enamel dials set into the front of the bird box, the central dial for mean time with roman numerals and blued steel hands, to the right a dial for date with arabic numerals and to the left the month written in script. PERPETUAL CALENDAR The perpetual calendar work in the present lot is one of the earliest applications of the complication known from Patek Philippe. Only one other perpetual movement (no.25.308), cased in 1865 as a pocket watch, is known to be earlier than the present piece. Research also shows that movement no.20.953 was also a perpetual calendar, but this was later finished and cased. It is important to note that the production of the perpetual calendar work in this box was completed 24 years before Patek Philippe patented their first perpetual calendar mechanism in 1889. During this pre-patent period, each Patek Philippe calendar or perpetual calendar mechanism was elaborated as a prototype and improved with each new movement.  The perpetual calendar mechanism in the present box is most interesting and spread under the three dials, covering the full length of the movement. MUSICAL AUTOMATON BIRD MECHANISM Attributed to Bruguier, rectangular gilt mechanism, fusee and chain, leather covered bellows, series of stacked cam wheels controlling the movement of the bird in time with the pitch and stop of the bird song, with connection (now lacking) to the watch movement to trigger the bird at 12. Bird movement size 84mm x 44mm. THE BIRD Fully automated bird appearing when the lid is lifted with the slide on the side of the case and at 12 o'clock, covered with humming bird feathers and with real beak, the bird turns bodily, flaps its wings, turns its head and opens it beak in time with the bird song.  THE BOX Engraved silver with champlevé stylised greek key design in turquoise and black enamel, the oval lid to the top with fine polychrome enamel signed JH and depicting two children burying a dead songbird, lifting to reveal a finely engraved and pierced recess from which the siging bird appears, the left side fitted with hinged key compartment, the dials mounted on a hinged front panel to reveal the winding, setting and adjusting apertures, the base with guilloché, centered by a central plain cartouche surrounded by foliate design and with keyhole for winding the bird. The enamel panel is signed JH and attributed to Juliette Hébert who was the pupil of her father Jules Hébert and the well known Gaspard Lamunière. She specialised in miniature enamel portraits and frequently copied old master paintings in her work. Juliette Hébert participated in many Geneva events and exhibitions from 1857 and won a first prize in the 1897 Brussels Universal exhibition. BRUGUIER AND BRUGUIER & FILS Charles-Abraham, son of établisseur Jacques-François Bruguier, was born in Geneva in 1788. According to Sharon Bailly, there is a strong probablity of some connection between the Bruguiers and the Rochat family of  singing bird masters, although so far these is no incontrovertible proof. In any case, Charles-Abraham trained as a clockmaker, moving to London in 1815 where his son Abraham-Charles, known as Charles, was born on 25 November 1818 and christened with his younger sister Louise Pernette at St Anne's Soho on 26 November 1822. The following year the family returned to Geneva and it is at this point that Charles-Abraham apparently began to make singing bird boxes, taking time between 1833 and 1837 to work at the Paur musical box factory near Montbéliard. Charles Bruguier fils is first recorded as a mécanicien separately from his father in 1843. Both produced singing bird boxes with excellent mechanisms contained within gold, silver or silver-gilt cases, distinctively enamelled with romantic lake views or flowers. Charles Bruguier fils and Jacques Bruguier eventually took over and continued the family business. See Sharon & Christian Bailly, Oiseaux de Bonheur, Geneva, 2001, pp. 262-294, for a biography of the Bruguier family and illustrations of their works. Patek Philippe no.26.685 is one of the most important creations by Patek Philippe. With its combination of singing bird automata, perpetual calendar and time, no.26.685 is the most complicated piece known to have been made by Patek Philippe between the company’s foundation in 1839 and the date of the box’s manufacture in 1865. Incorporating one of the company’s earliest ever applications of the Perpetual calendar mechanism, it was made 24 years before the Patek Philippe perpetual calendar patent was filed. Renowned for their mastery of mechanical complexity, the present lot stands at a pivotal and defining moment in the history of the company. The Patek Philippe perpetual calendar patent was undoubtedly one of the watchmaker’s most significant inventions, ultimately leading to the company’s extraordinary complication calendar wristwatches which have historically defined Patek Philippe as leaders in their field. Bird boxes with complications are extremely rare and only two are known to have been made by Patek Philippe. One was included in the 1878 Paris Exhibition (mvt.28.395), the lid of which bore an enamel miniature of Lake Geneva [Source: Oiseaux de Bonheur by Arnaud Tellier, Tribune des Arts, July 7th 2006]. It seems clear that the present box was especially made. By serial number, the current lot is the earliest bird box known, below is a table detailing all known Patek Philippe bird boxes. _________ Known Patek Philippe Bird Boxes 26.685 Present lot 28.383 Antiquorum 1987 XXXXX Duchesse de Berry, 1861 XXXXX Triomphe de la Science, Shah of Persia XXXXX Virginia Museum, un-identified 28.389 Sotheby's, 1980; Antiquorum, 1987 28.391 Sotheby's, 2006 28.393 Sotheby's, 2000; Antiquroum 2001 28.395 Paris Exhibition 1878 28.398 Antiquroum 1993; Now at the Patek Philippe Museum 28.399 Antiquorum 1993 850.010 Patek Philippe Museum
