    Patek Philippe celebrated their 175th anniversary in 2014 with the release of new models ranging from the artistic to the complicated watches. The reference 5975 looks similar to the classic chronograph, but it is something completely different and modern. The watch is the first automatic chronograph produced by the brand, and the first without registers or subsidiary dials. Patek Philippe created a new dial with “multi-scales” including pulsometer, telemeter and tachometer. This dial is reminiscent of the 20th century when multi-scale dials were popular with the military especially during World War II. Without registers, this watch is not so much a chronograph but more a calculating tool with one able to take a pulse, calculate a distance or a speed. Patek Philippe released 400 limited edition timepieces each in yellow, white and pink gold, and 100 in platinum.

    In like new condition and new to the market, the present watch is complete with original certificate of origin, presentation box, anniversary medallion and hangs tags. The solid back reads "175th Anniversary 1839-2014", and the 40mm diameter case is the perfect size to accommodate the new dial. It has a clean visible appeal, and easy to read. The reference 5975G set a new standard for traditional watchmaking, and while modern in production, it is vintage in spirit.
