The new Refs. 6300 and 5271 'Haute Joaillerie': Four new marvelous Pateks that you probably haven't seen yet! :-)

Nov 16, 2022,01:57 AM
 

Dear Friends,


it is with great pleasure that I can officially share with you four new remarkable "high jewelry" Grand Complications released today! smile

Many thanks --- even more than usual! --- to Patek for sending this detailed material to be shared with my forum, since due to the extremely limited production of these models, their launch has been relatively "under the radar" today!
With the exception of Patek's official site, where you can already find some information, I am sincerely honored to be one of the first (perhaps the first? ;-) international outlet to present these highly exclusive new releases for our members! smile

Without further ado, below is a selection of official pictures for each of the four models, all showcasing Patek's absolute mastery of the technique of "gemsetting":

Refs. 6300/400G and /401G; and refs. 5271/11P (sapphires) and /12P (rubies).

The official press release and further documents will follow soon!

Thanks again to Patek Philippe for the opportunity to make this very special announcement --- and I sincerely hope you will enjoy! smile

The amazing new 5271/12P... One of the VERY rare occurrences of a red dial on a Patek Philippe timepiece! smile

Even the buckle is pretty marvelous! smile

Whew....

when I look at these, I at once marvel at the craftsmanship, yet disdain the 'flashiness' of this type of design.... A mixed batch of thoughts and feelings.... Thanks for the pics Fabrizio, Filip

Thanks for commenting Filip :-) While I personally find these (specific) "haute joaillerie" versions of existing models to be totally unmatched combinations of jewelry and horology, I agree that, almost by definition, they cannot be for everyone! ;-)

 
 By: FabR : November 16th, 2022-03:01
Note the two models they take "inspiration" from, where pure horology is much more prominent: Ref. 5270 (of which we currently have three versions in catalog), and Ref. 6300. In particular, the latter is the worthy successor of the "Anniversary reference"...  

Those are completely mesmerizing.

 
 By: InHavenPro : November 16th, 2022-03:50
The way I tend to see it, one can pull it off (regardless of their sex - male, female and in between x) only if their sensibilities are such that they minimize absolutely everything about their presentation except the watch itself.... Then, in my mind, it... 

You could definitely be right in your analysis --- we are speaking of such a rarefied group of collectors here (especially when it comes to the 6300) that it's difficult to make general statements...

 
 By: FabR : November 16th, 2022-04:15
... but I honestly wouldn't be shocked if, at that level, even a 6300 might get "competition in the presentation" for some collectors! (A car? a plane? Or maybe really noting?? ) For sure, in this day and age, lots of people will be waiting to see the fir... 

The funny thing is....

NOT with something like that on their wrist hawhawhaw.... The contract doesn't include a clause where it's OK to deliberately increase liability 300% .... The previous person I worked with bought a $50K Patek for his 72nd birthday.... The one I currently ...

I gotta get myself something jeweled...

 
 By: patrick_y : November 16th, 2022-02:20
My favorite part is the clasp! I especially like the clasp! I've been thinking about this clasp since I saw the 5971!

I seriously think they are *spectacular* pieces, for me the red in particular must be something breathtaking on the wrist! The only thing honestly needed to be considered is the $348k vs. the $211k for the "standard" 5270P ;-)

 
 By: FabR : November 16th, 2022-03:08
Patek is reading this thread, so who knows, maybe they'll decide to reward a top-tier collector like yourself if you submit a request! All of these pieces, including the two 5271s, will of course be extremely limited despite their being in regular product... 

They are nothing short of spectacular indeed.

 
 By: patrick_y : November 16th, 2022-15:03
I'll have to treat myself when I have a better year. This year was already filled with some big treats and it already wasn't a good year.

Hopefully!

Amusing comment Patrick!

 
 By: InHavenPro : November 16th, 2022-04:02
I think I would quite fancy just having the buckle jeweled, and the watch 'standard-issue' .... That way, in my mind, you get the best of both worlds! Cheers, Filip

My strange logic...

 
 By: patrick_y : November 16th, 2022-14:59
My strange logic is that I would probably be more likely to scratch the clasp while typing on the computer. Therefore, to have diamonds on the clasp is practical, since diamonds are scratch resistant! Besides, I always like a coat to have the fur lining o... 

The fur inside of a coat is a touch of class, while personally I wear it rarely (often in winter I just go for big cashmere scarves), it can look REALLY elegant on a man who can wear it! :-)

 
 By: FabR : November 16th, 2022-15:57
I'm with you on these buckles, they are simply works of art in their own right! I've been paying more attention to them since I got my 5088 last year --- its P buckle is hand-engraved to match the "Volutes and Arabesques" dial, and sometimes I stare at it...  

Beautiful buckle!

 
 By: patrick_y : November 16th, 2022-16:23
My favorite buckle is the 5160G buckle. It reminds me of the engravings of a Purdey gun. I'm very much a sweater person. I do like my wool and cashmere sweaters. I'm not big on scarves yet - I find that Europeans really know how to wear scarves and I find... 

Ahh. I didn't know the buckle was G.

 
 By: patrick_y : November 17th, 2022-00:41
A lot of brands do the buckle in white gold with a platinum cased watch. But didn't know that was going on in this specific case.

Correct, the whole 5160G, hence including the buckle, is in G gold (of course easier to work with than P, but this definitely doesn't detract anything from its spectacular details! ;-)

 
 By: FabR : November 17th, 2022-02:34
Similarly, for consistency, both the case and clasp of the 5088/100P are in Platinum. However, the base of the dial where the engraving is performed is again in G gold (and the black portion is enamel) Hand-engraved P case Hand-engraved P buckle The hand ...  

Ahh! Got it!

 
 By: patrick_y : November 17th, 2022-12:34
Thank you for correcting my confusion! It's a special piece!

Marvelous wristshot.

Beautiful pieces. Just not for me.

 
 By: socal to az : November 16th, 2022-02:28
With my lifestyle I just don’t see any instances where I can wear one of these. But they are gorgeous. (And expensive!)

You know what....

 
 By: InHavenPro : November 16th, 2022-04:03
those jeweled cufflinks are 'to-die-for'! That, I would get in a heartbeat ....

Thanks Filip, I honestly don't know more about these cufflinks but my guess is they may *not* be purchased separately from the watch, given their "6300" reference number (it will be no problem to ask though, if you are interested).

 
 By: FabR : November 16th, 2022-04:33
The closest ones in Patek's catalog that can be ordered via your ADs are probably these: Patek Philippe | Luxury Jewelry, Cufflinks, Rings & Accessories or even these: Patek Philippe | Luxury Jewelry, Cufflinks, Rings & Accessories Cheers.

Now, that's an impressive selection!

 
 By: InHavenPro : November 16th, 2022-04:38
I wasn't even aware of the assortment on offer.... Thanks for sharing the links, when I was at the boutique in Beverly Hills last summer, they had absolutely none ....

That’s $&%*ing crazy…. I would never want a jeweled watch but this is an exception.

 
 By: doubleup : November 16th, 2022-02:43
They are perfect. Unbelievable the attention and time that goes into pieces like these. That side profile picture of the grand comp is crazy. No doubt there are some people who will buy 1 of each. That would be a nice set to have

Many thanks for commenting, B. --- both the horological and the artistic aspects are indeed showcased at their finest in these pieces! :-)

 
 By: FabR : November 16th, 2022-03:55
Here's some information taken from Patek's site, if you or other members are interested in learning more on this most beautiful artistic craft of "gemsetting": PS: I frankly doubt many people will be able to get an allocation of one of each (especially w...

 By: Brandon Skinner : November 16th, 2022-03:26
I find the Patek product photography fairly ugly. The backgrounds and some of the angles are really unpleasant to look at.

LOL... I momentarily abandoned my "if you don't have anything nice to say..." mantra for a minute there.

 
 By: Brandon Skinner : November 16th, 2022-04:51
So, umm, yeah... nice watches!!! Thanks for putting up with me, FabR!

I'll take two! (of each) : )

WOW 🤩 factor ! All four are eye catching, and to me the blue sapphire ones look especially elegant. Thanks for sharing.

I'm usually not into gems, but...

 
 By: andrea~ : November 16th, 2022-06:23
...those 5271s are incredible! If I could, I would rock them without question. Owning both would be amazing, switching from blue to red depending on your mood.

both!! good idea

 
 By: anaroku : November 16th, 2022-09:35

It would be amazing, but I probably need a little more time!

 
 By: andrea~ : November 16th, 2022-13:16
I'm sure that sooner or later at least one Patek will make its way into my collection...

Thanks!

 
 By: andrea~ : November 16th, 2022-16:35

In full agreement Nils --- I very much look forward to seeing all of these models soon, but the 5271/12P is probably the one that struck me the most when I saw the pictures! ;-)

 
 By: FabR : November 16th, 2022-12:37
I love its highly unusual all-red design, a color we VERY rarely see on a Patek Philippe dial! Cheers.

Spectacular gem setting….

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 16th, 2022-09:05
Firstly, thank you Fab for sharing this with us on the forum. The watches look spectacular, the quality of the design and gem setting is outstanding. Best regards Captain

Thank you for this post, Fab.

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : November 16th, 2022-13:45
I love diamonds on time pieces anyway and feel that these are some of the best looking in the market. A "standard" black dialed 5270P is already a spectacular watch but these here are from out of this world!

WHOA!

 
 By: NautNut : November 16th, 2022-16:09
Are the clasps available for purchase?

I like how you're thinking!

 
 By: patrick_y : November 16th, 2022-18:53
Unfortunately, generally, they don't make the clasps available on their own.

well it has your name written on it I am afraid...

 
 By: keks : November 16th, 2022-17:21
As I recall 6300 being a favorite of yours FabR.... the gem set one would be even better for you is my take. I would think the blue one.... Personally I would not mind walking around with the red 5271, what a stunning piece with the red dial to complement... 

A red 5271 and a deep burgundy red soccer jersey!

 
 By: patrick_y : November 16th, 2022-18:55
Hmm. It's possible somebody will be wearing a ruby watch with a Burgundy Red Soccer Jersey in Doha during the World Cup!

Right! Not during the game!

The Grandmaster Chime (sounds like a Hip Hop artist) to me looks so much more appealing in this format.

 
 By: Jay (Eire) : November 16th, 2022-20:16
It’s a case that was built to be bejeweled. Thanks for sharing as always Fab.

I can honestly say it’s the first time I look at that watch and think “not bad actually”.

 
 By: Jay (Eire) : November 17th, 2022-03:08
The stones manage to do something that the elaborate engraved cases never seemed to do. It’s possible that they may even make the watch look a little more contemporary (something I’ve been discussing over on the Journe forum today). Can you imagine runnin... 

I certainly agree on your broader point --- while there's (probably!) no doubt that Ref. 6300 is one of the most remarkable pieces horology can offer today (its combination of technical and historical significance is almost unprecedented)...

 
 By: FabR : November 17th, 2022-05:26
...these two gem-set versions of the reference (/400G and /401G) are highly likely to represent a "complete package" for some collectors! In fact, a romantic but reasonable reading is that, precisely because of these new interpretations, Ref. 6300 now "tr... 

exciting...!

would love to see you sporting one of these FabR!! And you Jay for that matter as well!! Would love to attend that GTG

What a fabulous treat Fab!
