Catalogue Note

For almost 200 years, Patek Philippe has strived to construct the most complicated and efficient timepieces, but also committed to safeguard traditional artisanal techniques used for decorating watches such as engraving, enameling, marquetry and gem-setting.
Among all the decorative techniques, the art of enamelling may possibly be the most challenging to master. To become a master enameller, one must spend years of practice and dedication to understand the complicated process from matching the colour of the glass to controlling the temperature and time of each firing.

With the theme “Les Tigers” confirmed on the Certificate of Origin, the 3 horizontal polychrome cloisonné enamel is decorated with a field of vibrant orange and black stripes coloured Tigers standing gloriously against an open field of green grasses and mud orange colour ground.
In exceptional condition and fresh to the market, this dome clock is a fine example of the quality and expertise that is inherent at Patek Philippe and is now part of the brands DNA.
