Response to Patek Philippe re-opens the historic "Salon", Geneva

This is one of two new anniversary watches to celebrate the new Patek Philippe salon.
Ref. 5105, a rectangular platinum watch with a great surprise inside....




According to PP, a lot of 100 NOS caliber 9-90 tonneau movements were found during the workshop departement move to Plan Les Ouates in 1996. It's one of the all time classics of PP, IMO.









Best regards
Suitbert
