When you are wearing Patek Philippe’s Sky Moon Tourbillon (Ref.5002) timepiece, everyone who requests for the time is literally asking you a million-dollar question. The Patek Philippe timepiece, which is most prominent for its affinity to astronomy, fetches a whooping 1.5 million dollars. Sky Moon Tourbillon M 5002P is notable for its celestial patterns indicator and its second blue dial that tells sidereal time every 23 hours 56 minutes and 4.1 seconds. Its 43 mm white silver dial is fitted with special functions – a leap year indicator at the 12 o’clock slot, month indicator at 3’oclock, moon phase indicator at 6 o’clock, and week indicator at 9 o’clock. Add to that a date teller in pink engravings under the hour markings. And of course, it tells accurate time. How all of these features are packed into a sleek platinum case held by black crocodile leather strap is a Patek Philippe genius that is, decidedly, worth a million dollars. Shreve & Co. in Post Street, San Francisco is an authorized retailer of Patek Philippe.
