This is my deep insight into the Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Ref. 5175

 

The Grandmaster Chime is delivered in a chest made of Makassar ebony and 17 further wood species. It is decorated with intarsia and gold inlays. Apart from the watch, it contains the accompanying documentation and a commemorative medal in gold that depicts milestones of the manufacture’s history as well as portraits of the company’s presidents from the Stern family since 1932.

The Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime celebrates the 175th anniversary of the manufacture in a limited edition of seven watches.

Six of them will be sold to long-standing collectors of Patek Philippe timepieces. The seventh one will find a place of honor at the Patek Philippe Museum where the public can admire it.

  • this is an accomplishment of epic proportions. kudos to Thierry Stern and the entire Patek team. they have, once again, significantly raised the bar of haute horlogerie from every conceivable angle from concept design all the way through to case fabrication and assembly.

  • There is a saying, “We did it because we could.” The watch is a tour de force in its every aspect. As you say, “Chapeau!” The dimensions are small for all the mechanical complexity. The casework is of another era beautifully and deeply carved.
    I am still happy with PP Calatrava in 18K yellow gold.

    Thank you, Alexander!

  • Alex ,why are they giving out all the details of this unique watch ?
    It makes it easier for the competition to duplicate a similar piece

    • Though Patek Philippe is giving out all details of this truly awe-inspiring watch, how many watch brands have capability to create such a stunning timepiece?

      Well Roger, I think very few watch companies can create some watch that is similar to Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Ref. 5175. Maybe, Lange, JLC and Vacheron Constatin can create something like this.
