Classic Design with New Variation- Patek Philippe 10 Day Tourbillon 5101R Watch
The Patek Philippe 10 Day Tourbillon 5101R watch is another hot point to add in the highly exclusive 5101 series and to attract people’s attention. The watch is also sports the same 240 hours of power reserve, an unbeaten record among hand-wound watches with a tourbillion escapement.
While the first model in this 5101 series was delivered in platinum case, this 5101R is encased in an 18k rose gold body of the same art-deco style rectangular shape. Though this watch comes in a less expensive body when compared to the platinum one, this model actually looks a little bit more charming than the platinum version. The successful combination of rose gold case, hands and Arabic numerals with sand-blasted dial that made of the same rose gold material give the watch a warmer, more comfortable look. Its “reserve de Marché” and small seconds sub-dials, that are conveniently located at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock respectively, are made in bright silvery grey, which makes the watch’s face less monotonous and more exquisite.
The tourbillion display window is unusually moved away from the dial but to the other side of the case, which is covered with a sapphire crystal. Patek Philippe said that this design of tourbillion display is done in order to prevent the mechanism from unnecessary exposure to ultraviolent radiation that speeds up lubricating oil’s decomposition and effectively shortens the watch’s lifespan. Well, we have to admit that with the tourbillion hidden from prying eyes, the watch gets much more elegant and classic look yet not look so busy. The watch features a 2228-20/222 caliber, two mainspring barrels that have the role of storing the energy, a power reserve scale that announces the owner when it’s time to rewind the watch.
