Patek Philippe 5101P 10 Day Tourbillon Photomontage  0 Comments


Finally from the many images I took of this watch, I am reasonably happy with the selected images I have put together for this photomontage. It has always been a problem to photograph curved crystals and this Patek is no different. Due to the curvature of the face of the watch, the crystal picks up the reflection of everything within the vicinity of the watch. Despite all my efforts to avoid it, I managed only a handful of images that are barely able to pass my acceptable standards.

Notwithstanding, the images of both the front and back of this watch manages to show off why this is such a desirable timepiece. Unique colour combination of dial and strap, stealth dial that belies the movement - save for the text "10 days" and "Tourbillon" in very small print.

The three quarter plate immaculately finished and the bridges clearly handled with extreme care. While some may prefer to admire the tourbillon on the dial, I think having it on the movement side is much more gentlemanly and understated to reflect the sophistication of its owner.

A watch with a retail tag of over a quarter of a million Singapore dollars - only the very well heeled and patient (waiting time of over 2 years) will be able to own one. For the rest, do enjoy the photomontage... - CLICK HERE.
