Among the echelons of Patek minute repeaters collection, reference 3939 is seen as one of the most influential timepieces to ever grace the world with an elegant but minimalistic enamel dial. Another highly sought after reference, the reference 5013, could very well be the top piece in any serious collection, for its small production quantity and in unused condition. The limited edition platinum minute repeating annual calendar reference 5033 on the other hand was Made for the State of Qatar, and the 5208 chimes with exquisite tone combining the minute repeater with the perpetual calendar. Last but not least, the 5275 was released as the commemorative chiming piece for Patek Philippe's 175 anniversary, while the 5078 was retailed by the prestigious Tiffany & Co. boutique.
Sotheby’s is presenting one of the most greatest collection of Patek Philippe repeaters in its Hong Kong Autumn Sales 2023 on 7 October, 2023.
