  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2014 Patek Philippe celebrated its 175th anniversary by releasing a collection of luxury limited edition watches that ranged from their Grandmaster Chime timepiece, to elegant platinum hourly chiming Jump Hour, a selection of multi-scale chronograph watches and like the present, a World Time wristwatch with moon phases. The collection was the epitome of the brand’s long and prestigious history reflecting on complicated movements and aesthetic design.

    The reference 5575 is a classic World Time model enhanced with the moon phases. Watchmakers manufactured two thin discs, which centre the watch face allowing the wearer to see a starry night with a waxing and waning moon as each month progresses. In a twist to their traditional world time complications, the Central European time zone, which was indicated by Paris, was changed to Geneva in honour of Patek Philippe's home city. The model was produced in 1300 white gold examples and is a wonderful tribute to one of the brands most iconic complications, the world time wristwatch.

    The present example is in excellent overall condition and is complete with a Certificate of Origin, Attestation, presentation box and commemorative coin.

Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
