Catalogue Note

With a Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin, Attestation and presentation box.

This limited edition of reference 5130 was manufactured in 150 pieces only in platinum, with an emerald green center disc and "MECCA" printed in green on the dial (in place of "MOSCOW" or "DOHA" as it is in the same time zone as those two cities).

This watch was designated for the Saudi Arabia market. The emerald green on the dial is special since green is considered the traditional color of Islam.  It was used by Muhammad's tribe as the color of their flag. The Qu'ran describes the garments and cushions in paradise as made of green silk, and green is often used in mosques as well as coverings of the Qu-ran.  In addition, green is also the color of Saudi Arabia's flag.

The Ref. 5130 is often chosen to have special city edition due to the nature/function of this model.  On top of this 'Mecca' edition, there are examples such as 'Dubai' edition made for the Patek Philippe exclusive retailer Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, and 'Shanghai' edition for the opening of Shanghai Patek Philipp center.  However, none of these special edition watches carry the gorgeous dial color such as the Ref. 5130 'Mecca'.  This is only the second time this watch has ever appeared in auction.
