A little more information for you on two of the most interesting Tokyo Rare Handcrafts, the twin Refs. 5089G-124 and -125, "Tsuba -- Oranges and Flowers," featuring the technique of hand-engraving!
From Patek's original description, only lightly edited:
These two limited editions of five watches each were inspired by a decoration of oranges and flowers gracing a tsuba, the hand guard on a traditional Japanese sword, dating from the mid-Nineteenth century.
The floral ornament was hand-engraved in relief, with fine detailing on the veins of the leaves. It stands out against a circular piqué pattern, also hand-engraved, adorning the background. This composition was tinted brown and then satin-brushed to bring out the dial’s original hue -- white gold on Ref. 5089G-124, yellow gold on Ref. 5089G-125.
A central relief motif, which recalls the opening in a tsuba, enriches the composition. Dauphine-style hands in white gold or yellow gold indicate the time. They feature a pierced central fillet recalling the shape of a sword.
As with all 5089G references, the white gold cases are endowed with a sapphire crystal case back protected by a hinged dust cover affording a private view of Caliber 240.
