Patek Philippe 6002G-001 description
Introduced in 2014, the Sky Moon Tourbillon 6002 is the successor to the iconic 5002.
As regards the movement, the new Ref. 6002 is largely identical with its predecessor. It possesses a
minute repeater with two cathedral gongs and a tourbillon; on the front dial, it indicates standard time
and features a perpetual calendar with a retrograde date and a moon-phase display. The rear dial sets
the stage for astronomical functions: it shows the northern sky, sidereal time, and the angular
progression and phases of the moon. Unlike the Ref. 5002, it indicates the moon phases instead of the
moon age and features apertures instead of hands for the day of the week, month, and leap year
The totally new aspect of the Sky Moon Tourbillon Ref. 6002 is its appearance, with lavish decorations
that elevate it to the status of a grand creation. To refer to a case or a dial is almost a sacrilege in the
context of the Ref. 6002. Sculpture would be the more fitting term for a genuine work of art like the Sky
Moon Tourbillon. In particular, it showcases two artisanal skills: the art of the engraver and that of the
enameler. Since the advent of Geneva's watchmaking heritage in the late 16th century, both of these
crafts have been inseparably allied with watchmaking.
