We just finished dinner in Geneva, where Patek Philippe 6002g sky moon replica watches showed its latest and greatest (seriously, it is a fresh take on Patek’s most complicated wristwatch ever). Tonight, in the salon over Patek 6002g prix imitation watch‘s downtown Geneva boutique, we have been shown the Sky Moon Tourbillon Reference 6002. Though the technical differences between this Sky Moon along with the original (mention 5002) aren’t extensive, they’re there, and in which this new mention shines is in its case and dial work.
Let’s first cover the technical advantages of this 5002 and the newest 6002 Sky Moon tourbillon to determine where they differ. Both features 13 complications along with two dials. They all possess a minute repeater using two palace gongs and a tourbillon; around front dial, they both indicate standard time and feature a perpetual calendar with a retrograde date and a moonphase display. The rear dials set the stage for astronomical purposes: they reveal the northern sky, sidereal time, along with also the angular progression and phases of the moon.
But, the 6002, unlike the 5002, suggests the moon phases instead of the moon age, also features apertures instead of hands for the day of the week, month, and leap year exhibits.
But the largest differences are physical. 6002″a sculpture to the wrist.” Here’s why:
“The event of the Ref. 6002 is a superb oeuvre carved from the huge white-gold blank entirely by hand. The brassy ornaments, arabesque garlands, and softly curved elements of the Calatrava cross are produced with chip removal techniques using sharp burins which doesn’t only incise the metal but actually”elevator” the ornaments out of the gold surface. An involuntary movement or a brief moment of distraction would ruin the case and it would need to become re-melted. But the engraver not only molds the gold in bas-relief but also applies the chisel to sculpt life into the tiny surfaces involving the three-dimensional structures. Thus, more than one hundred hours of work are spent until the engraving alone fulfills the acceptance of the master artisan and Patek Philippe 6002g-010 grand complications replica watches‘ President Thierry Stern. With the same precision and artistry, the engraver uses relief techniques to decorate the second – repeater slide in the instance flank, both crowns, and the white-gold grip that locks the ring. The ornaments of the two crowns are as informative as they are decorative: The dynamometric winding crown at 4 o’clock reveals an arrow at relief to indicate that the direction of rotation, while the stars and moon in relief onto the crown at 2 o’clock reveal that it is meant to adjust sidereal time and the celestial acts on the rear dial.”
Conversely, the centre of the dial is decorated with so-called cloisonné enamel. This technique entails shaping the contours of the blossoms and leaves using nice, flattened gold wire that has to be affixed to the dial. The end result of countless hours of painstaking work is a number of separate cells (cloisons) which are then full of enamel of different colors of blue. Again, the next step is shooting and simmer for eternity in an oven at about 850° Celsius.
While most contours in the shape of silvery relief structures are inserted in blue tooth, the hour numerals are gold appliques. Other dial elements such as the numerals as well as the mark of this retrograde calendar scale, the PATEK PHILIPPE GENEVE and TOURBILLON inscriptions, the motion number and the delicately pointed stars are painted brightly grey.
Sounds complicated, huh? It’s, and that is the reason why we allow Patek explain it to you themselves above. Like the 5002, this Sky Moon includes a caliber with 686 parts at just 12.6mm thick – impressive for the degree of sophistication. There is not any word on pricing officially, but the last known price of a Sky Moon was around $1.2 million, so assume the 6002G will probably be marginally greater.
