When most people think about Patek Philippe replica watches, they consider the evergreen versions which roll off the lips of enthusiasts all over the world: Philippe, Gondolo, Calatrava and, possibly even, that delectable worldtimer that appeared at 2013’s brand new Patek Philippe nautilus 5160 replica watches offerings as Reference 5130. But one of many elements that I personally adore concerning Patek Philippe is its love of this handcrafted arts and the perpetuation of them in exceptionally aesthetic ways.
In 2013, the introduction of the Sky Moon Tourbillon Reference 6002G — that you may read about in detail here– saw this most conventional of Genevan brands bringing a few of the arts back into the limelight: champlevé and cloisonné enamel as evidenced by Reference 6002G’s deliciously complicated blue dial (as the observable result of this delightfully complex mechanics) and the fancy engraving on the solid white gold case.
Another complicated Patek Philippe yupoo 5160 fake watch timepiece also received similar attention from one of these handcrafted arts in 2013, a timepiece I find to have been overlooked, although admittedly that is simple to accomplish among the vast collection of fine timepieces that this brand provides. I’m speaking about the complicated Reference 5160, which includes an ultra-tidy endless calendar that renders the opaline dial appearing uncluttered, clear in its message, and allowing the viewer the opportunity to glimpse the desired information quickly.
Coming back into the floral instance engraving, this pattern had certainly not been picked randomly, neither for Reference 5160 nor for the most recent version of this Sky Moon Tourbillon. In reality, this pattern is highly reminiscent of that based on what is affectionately known by enthusiasts of the brand and horological history as”the Packard.” Sold to American industrialist James Ward Packard, practically the only adornment this sober, complicated pocket watch — arguably the most complicated timepiece on earth in the time of its completion in 1927 — offered was the floral engraving on its own 18-karat gold case and the granulation on its own bow. In my experience, this minimalist, classy embellishment has often been used by the maison used to signify something important, yes, even understatedly spectacular.
As a last announcement pointing to its origins — as if they could be misconstrued — this stunning wristwatch is outfitted with a hinged officer’s case back also engraved with a floral pattern surrounding the new signature Calatrava cross that may be opened to reveal a sapphire crystal case back.
