  • Catalogue Essay

    Celebrating its 175th anniversary in 2014, Patek Philippe unveiled a collection of exclusive limited-edition timepieces to mark the special occasion. The Patek Philippe reference 5975, like the present example, featuring a groundbreaking multi-scale chronograph complication, was a highlight of the series.

    The timepiece was introduced in a variation of four different metals, with 400 examples each in yellow, pink, and white gold, along with an additional 100 examples in platinum. Encased in a gracefully constructed 40mm diameter case, its design features prominent stepped lugs and seamlessly blends more traditional watchmaking techniques with a modern touch, ensuring a timeless aesthetic.

    In contrast to more conventional chronographic setups, the reference 5975 showcases an unconventional 1-minute chronograph, designed to be used in conjunction with the multi-scale dial for measuring speed (tachymeter scale), distance (telemeter scale), or heartbeats (pulsometer scale).

    Offered in excellent overall condition and accompanied by its full set of accessories, the present Patek Philippe reference 5975 from 2015 is a captivating timepiece. For collectors in search of a significant Patek Philippe chronograph reference, this underrated model is truly worth considering. Limited to just 400 pieces, this particular lot is fresh to the market and represents the 20th example to be presented at auction.
