A beautiful combination of the Swiss manufacture’s technical prowess and artisan skill, the celestial is a captivating and highly complex timepiece that highlights Patek Philippe’s longstanding legacy of producing astronomical watches. First produced in 2002, the intricate sky canopy of the celestial reference 5102 mirrors the reverse dial of the Sky Moon Tourbillon reference 5002, one of the most complicated wristwatches produced by the manufacturer, featuring 12 different horological complications.


The rich blue dial adorned with shimmering gold stars illustrates the nocturnal sky of the northern hemisphere with an elliptical aperture that frames the portion of the sky visible from Geneva at any time, displaying an impressive range of astronomical complications including a sky chart, moon phase and positioning, and the time of meridian passage of Sirius and the moon.


The current example featuring a platinum and pink gold case was released in 2009 and discontinued in 2012 after a very limited production, making this visual and mechanical masterpiece a highly collectable and unique timepiece.
