The Patek Philippe Ref 6002G was launched with a blue dial in 2013 and, with its debut, replaced the 2001 Sky Moon Tourbillon Ref 5002 as the world’s most complicated wristwatch ever made.
A front dial indicates standard time and displays a perpetual calendar with retrograde date and moon phases, while the reverse dial reveals astronomical functions with the northern sky, sidereal time, angular progression and different phases of the moon. Decorated with cloisonné and champlevé enamel, the face of this watch is breathtaking.
“The Ref 6002 Blue Dial is stunning from every angle, surprising viewers from the exteriors to the interiors. It is not just a watch, but instead an artistic and engineering sculpture which blends and brings together the greatest artisans of their own specific fields, from watchmaking and design to enamelling and goldsmithing,” says Sharon Chan, Bonhams’ head of watches, Asia. “For connoisseurs who have yearned for something so special and unique, this is without question the ultimate prize.”
Bonhams Hong Kong expects this watch to fetch more than HK$60 million (about US$7.7 million).
