Only six pieces of this 2.500.000 Swiss Franc watch will ever be made. Yes, that´s for sure a magnificent timepiece. Click on “read more” to get some first information about the watch.
Our 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., said Patek Philippe CEO Thierry Stern tonight here in Geneva.
Let me due to the fact that it is already after midnight give you “just” some first brief information about the new Patek Philippe timepiece.
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. Four additional patents emphasize the innovative thrust behind this watch.
Now the same scenery shown in a short video I taped here in Geneva at Patek Philippe HQ. The cad of the watch shown to me by a watchmaker was not yet decorated… In fact it is one of the first working samples of the new Grandmaster Chime…
This is in brief all you need to know about the watch. More to come tomorrow
