On the occasion of the “Rare Handicrafts 2020-2021” exhibition, Patek Philippe released the Ref. 6002R-001 Sky Moon Tourbillon watch, equipped with a hand-engraved rose gold case, with a large open flame and cloisonne enamel brown dial
Ref. debuted in 2001. The 5002 Sky Moon Tourbillon is Patek Philippe’s second most complex watch. This is one of the most coveted large-scale complications for collectors and connoisseurs. From 2013 to 2016, this double-sided watch launched a rare handcrafted version with a white gold case and blue enamel dial (6002G-001). In 2016, a new version (6002G-010) with a black enamel dial was launched.
The new version released during “Rare Handcrafts 2020-2021” combines the warm luster of rose gold with brown Grand Feu enamel. The periphery of the dial, the moon phase window and the moon on the rotating disc are all made of hollow enamel. Using this technique, the base metal must first be milled accurately to keep individual elements such as tiny scales loose. cheap luxury watches
Then, manually fill the grooves with enamel compound. The center of the dial is decorated with grand flame cloisonné enamel, which is made of thin flat gold thread. The volute and arabesque patterns are all hand-engraved around the case, crown, timing slide and folding clasp. The master engraver put in more than 100 hours of work and considerable patience to achieve the highest standards to complete this process.
The Sky Moon Tourbillon combines 12 fascinating complications, including a tourbillon and a minute repeater that strikes the cathedral gong. The front dial displays a perpetual calendar with retrograde date, moon phase display and leap year cycle.
On the other side is a sky map, on which the apparent movement of the moon and stars can be seen from the northern hemisphere. In order to orchestrate the grand ballet of celestial bodies, Patek Philippe developed a system consisting of three overlapping discs that move in different, precisely calculated trajectories.
New reference. 6002R-001 Sky Moon Tourbillon comes with hand-carved rose gold cufflinks. It replaces Ref. 6002G-010 Platinum model, black Grand Feu enamel dial.
