  • Catalogue Essay

    In the year 2014, Patek Philippe celebrated its 175th anniversary and commemorated this auspicious moment by releasing a collection of limited edition watches that ranged from a Grandmaster Chime, to a elegant platinum hourly chiming Jump Hour, a selection of multi-scale chronograph watches and a World Time wristwatch with moon phases, such as the present timepiece. The collection perfectly showcased the brand’s long and prestigious history of combining complicated movements with aesthetic design.

    The reference 5575 is a classic World Time model enhanced with a moon phase complication. Two thin discs can be found on the dial side, allowing the wearer to see a starry night with the waxing and waning of the moon. As an aesthetic change, the Central European time zone, normally indicated by Paris, was changed to Geneva to honour of Patek Philippe's home city. Eye-catching and enigmatic, the model was produced in a limited edition of 1300 pieces as a tribute to one of the brands most iconic complications, the World Time wristwatch.

    The present watch was brand new and double sealed originally. It was only unsealed on August, 16 2023 in front of Phillips' in-house counsel for the purpose of shipping the timepiece and is complete with a Certificate of Origin, Attestation, presentation box and commemorative coin.
