Launched in 2007, reference 5971 is a true work of art embodying haute joaillerie and haute horlogerie. The watch is crafted with platinum and embellished with 36 Top Wesselton baguette-cut diamonds weighing approximately 4 carats. The reference 5971, discontinued today, was replaced by the reference 5271. Powered by caliber CH 27-70Q, the watch features the most popular complications including perpetual calendar, chronograph and moon phases. What renders this current example even rarer is that the watch is fitted with a white silvered dial and not the standard black. We are only hypothesis that Patek Philippe mounted this watch upon special request by the original owner.
