Catalogue Note

Patek Philippe Rare Handcrafts

Exquisitely and delicately crafted the following lots, both reference 5075, belong to Patek Philippe's 'Rare Handcrafts' series. Both adorned with floral dials and crafted in cloisonné enamel a technique that is as tricky to master as it is to execute. Demanding the highest level of skill and artisanship the enamel fills shapes created from thin gold wire. Enamels of different colours are added and fired as many as 12 times depending of the types and numbers of colours used. 

While several watches may be produced depicting the same subject, the process or colouring the dials, done entirely by hand, mean that no two dials are strictly alike. It is therefore fair to say in this regard these watches are fundamentally unique.

繁花似錦

以下兩枚型號5075腕錶均屬於百達翡麗「Rare Handcrafts」系列,造工精美絕倫。錶盤飾掐絲琺瑯花卉圖案,要學會這種工藝並不簡單,要駕馭自如更需要不斷錘煉。工匠必須掌握高超技法,在金絲之間填入不同顏色的琺瑯,然後反覆燒製,根據顏色的種類和數量,最多高達12次。

儘管題材相同的腕錶一般會生產好幾枚,但是由於錶盤均採用全人手上色和製作,因此沒有任何兩個錶盤完全相同。從這個角度考慮,這些腕錶可謂獨一無二。

The hibiscus, or Chinese Rose as it is also widely known, is an important symbol in Chinese culture representing glory, fame and splendor. Known to change colour, it also speaks to the fleeting nature of these attributes, and it is this which the enameller has tried to capture. Interestingly, and somewhat ironically however, enamel historically was a preferred medium due to its nature of never fading in vibrancy.
