Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Ref. 5175 Watch
To pay tribute to its 175th anniversary, Patek Philippe created a collection of limited-edition rare watches, and one of them stands out in particular. It is the so far most complicated timepiece of the proud family-owned watchmaking company and decidedly one of the world’s most unique wristwatches. This is due not only to the number of complications involved but also to the horological degrees of complexity, two of which have been added to the history of watchmaking for the first time. Moreover, the Grandmaster Chime is the first double-face wristwatch presented by Patek Philippe that can be worn with either dial facing up: the one that focuses on the time and the sonnerie, the other dedicated to the full instantaneous perpetual calendar. Changing the face is very simple thanks to the ingenious reversing mechanism in the lugs. It is amazingly easy to operate and firmly secures the case in the selected position. Incidentally, the information for which a watch is most frequently consulted – the current time and the date – is displayed on both dials. The ultimate in user-friendliness and safety is assured with intelligent mechanisms that prevent potentially damaging manipulations and thus reliably protect the highly complex movement with its intricate cosmos of tiny parts. Patek Philippe’s Grandmaster Chime is a wrist-format timekeeping instrument of absolutely unprecedented complexity and ingenuity that establishes new benchmarks in terms of technical and aesthetic elegance. In its double-face case with a diameter of 47 mm, it accommodates four spring barrels and no fewer than 20 complications, including coveted functions such as a Grande and Petite Sonnerie, a minute repeater, an instantaneous perpetual calendar with a four-digit year display, a second time zone, and two patented global debuts in the domain of chiming watches: an acoustic alarm that strikes the alarm time and a date repeater that sounds the date on demand. Patek Philippe watches are available at Harold Freeman Jewelers – Authorized Patek Philippe Dealer located on the west coast of Florida. We hope you enjoy this extremely interesting video.
