We just finished dinner here in Geneva, in which Patek Philippe sky moon tourbillon prix replica watches showed its latest and greatest (seriously, it is a new take on Patek’s most complicated wristwatch in history ). Tonight, at the private salon over Patek’s downtown Geneva boutique, we were shown the Sky Moon Tourbillon Reference 6002. Though the technical differences between this Sky Moon along with the first (mention 5002) are not extensive, they’re there, and in which this new reference shines is in its case and dial function.
Let’s first cover the technical strengths of this 5002 along with the newest 6002 Sky Moon tourbillon to see where they disagree. Both attributes 13 complications along with two dials. They each have a minute repeater using two palace gongs and a tourbillon; on the front dial, they indicate standard time and feature a perpetual calendar with a retrograde date and a moonphase display. The rear dials set the platform for astronomical purposes: they reveal the northern sky, sidereal time, and the angular progression and stages of the moon.
But, the 6002, unlike the 5002, suggests the moon phases instead of the moon era, and features apertures rather than hands for the day of the week, month, and leap year exhibits.
And on the other hand?
“The front dial of the Ref. Its little surface unites the skills of many experts who master milling, applique setting– and — most spectacularly — enameling with the champlevé and cloisonné techniques.
The dial is made out of a thin disk in golden that is milled out until the sharp railway track scale, the surrounds of the dial centre, calendar apertures, and moon-phase screen stick out in relief. This is followed closely by the work of the technical champlevé enameler who matches the recesses around the aid shapes with molten enamel by hand. The viscous combination of vitreous wax, metal oxides for colour, and oil is implemented using an ultra-fine brush. The tiniest bounded recesses are closely full of enamel. After all recesses have been filled, the tiny oeuvre is fired from the oven in 850° Celsius.
Conversely, the center of the dial is adorned with so-called cloisonné enamel. This technique entails shaping the shapes of the blossoms and leaves using fine, flattened gold cable that must be affixed to the dial. The result of countless hours of painstaking work is numerous separate cells (cloisons) which are then full of enamel of different shades of blue. The next step is firing and simmer for eternity in an oven at about 850° Celsius.
When most contours in the shape of silvery relief constructions are inserted in blue tooth, the Roman hour numerals are gold appliques. Other dial elements like the numerals as well as the mark of the retrograde calendar scale, the PATEK PHILIPPE GENEVE and TOURBILLON inscriptions, the motion number and the delicately pointed stars are painted bright grey.
The small lunar disc is just another fine example of champlevé: the circumference of the moon is elaborated in relief and enclosed with blue enamel. The cratered landscape of the moon’s surface is emulated with gradations of gray, white, and black enamel. This represents a massive effort for one dial component, but it certainly ranks among the very poetic complications conceivable. For a watch of the likes of the Sky Moon Tourbillon, no quantity of work could be deemed unreasonable once the matter would be to pay tribute to the movement which ticks beneath the dial.”
Sounds complicated, huh? It is, and that’s why we let Patek describe it to you themselves above. Such as the 5002, this Patek Philippe sky moon tourbillon gold fake watch has a caliber with 686 parts at only 12.6mm thick – impressive for the degree of sophistication. There is not any word on pricing officially, but the last known cost of a Sky Moon was around $1.2 million, therefore assume that the 6002G will probably be slightly higher.
