Patek Philippe is famous for its multiple (infinite) complications: perpetual calendars, split-second chronographs, some of the best moment repeaters ever made (and analyzed from the CEO himself) or a crazy watch that combines 20 of those complications in a single case, the GrandMaster Chime. But, one of the collection of watches made by Patek, a series of timepieces has a special place in the heart of collectors, with an extremely poetic display, the Celestials.
Don’t expect the Patek Philippe sky moon tourbillon blue edition replica watches 6102P Sky Moon to be the most tasteful, discreet or practical watch of the collection. That is clearly not its own purpose. The 6102P Celestial is a massive watch (especially once you consider the remainder of Patek’s collection), it’s a watch having a questionable utility and a very distinctive screen but it is a watch made for a different purpose: having a poetic and oneiric scene onto the wrist. It is a slow-moving view, using a slow-moving indication created for dreamers instead of having a sensible and extremely legible purpose.
The true Celestial can detect its roots back in 2002, when Replica patek philippe watches launched the now iconic ref. 5102. This view was very pure and simple in appearance, without a the sign of the time, the moon-phase along with the astronomic screen. The new reference, the 6102P shares these components except with an excess sign located on the intense side of the dial: the date. Luckily, the masterpiece of the timepiece remains untouched. Because, yes, this dial is excellent.
The dial of the Patek Philippe sky moon tourbillon 5002p fake watch 6102P Sky Moon consists from several layers of sapphire crystalclear. The first one generates the skies, with its deep glossy blue color. The second one suggests the orbit and phases of the Moon. The previous one, located the top, supports the stars and Sirius, the brightest star system in the earth’s night sky. On the very top of the dial, another coating, printed together with the cardinal points, helps you to locate the section of the sky visible from Geneva. In this context, the entire dial is an indication and time becomes a thing nearly secondary. The principal interest of this timepiece is to delight in a self-evident sign, obviously unusual but completely poetic, revealing the time of meridian passage of Sirius and of the moon.
The base is quite famous, as the Patek Philippe sky moon tourbillon prix clone 6102P relies on the iconic calibre 240 and its own micro-rotor. The rear may demonstrate a somewhat small movement (27.5mm), it comes with a massive module on the top to actuate all of the rotating discs (starry sky and moon position). The whole movement (Calibre 240 LU CL C) can also be thicker, at 6.81mm, also composed of 315 components instead of 161 components in a fundamental Calibre 240.
The ref. 6102P is seen as quite contentious. Some will prefer the old edition, the ref. 5102 for its lack of date. However, on the wrist the 44mm stays completely wearable (short and curved lugs help) and also the size comes as a natural element of this view, as a result of highly specific screen. A more compact watch wouldn’t be especially appropriate so as to enjoy the superb scenery of this blue dial. Of course, the integration of this date removes a substantial region of the purity, as the watch looks more loaded, when compared with the older ref. 5102. But, Patek utilized the best option to apply it in the context of the Celestials, without destroying the dial by adding a window.
