Patek Philippe is really a grand old house having a phenomenal history in complications. Today still it remains among the top complications maisons, despite the fact that I've found it's admission to mid level watches, such as the Nautilus or perhaps the not too mid level 5131 cloisonne world time, costly for what they're.
But at the very top finish from the complications spectrum, Patek actions possess a flair that rivals lack. They simply obtain that special something, such as the spectacular 'octopus' wheel around the 5016 grande complication, that's possibly reflective from the brand's institutional memory and heritage (or possibly it is simply the Sterns).
The Patek Philippe Tourbillon Replica Watch is another grande complication from Patek that embodies this mastery of haute horlogerie. The finishing is of course spectacular, no doubt about that as these photos demonstrate.
Such as the octopus wheel around the 5016, the 5101 has wonderful particulars in the finishing that should be seen close up. Particularly, it is the four sharp points in the finish from the black polished tourbillon bridge that prove why this is among the most opulent tourbillon watches today.
This is an early 5101P and it still has the Geneva Seal. There is no tangible difference between the Geneva Seal and Patek Philippe Seal watches but I prefer the Geneva Seal.
An obvious rival is the Patek Philippe Classic Tourbillon. Impeccably finished as it is, the Galet Classic lacks the little extra finesse of the Patek in my humble opinion.
The movement style, symmetry and layout are reminiscent of Patek tourbillon wristwatches made for Observatory trials like the ref. 3834
In the Best Patek Philippe Replica seemed to be an initial mover with this particular watch. It had been revealed in 2003, right before the lengthy, painful slide downwards from the Patek Philippe tourbillon like a true high complication. It's not only a tourbillon it includes a 10 day energy reserve, that is unusual in those days.
Aesthetically I love this watch as well. The long and sleek case is distinctively Art Deco, with its stepped sides. It reminds me of the Chrysler Building, one of the most beautiful structures in the world.
