  • Catalogue Essay

    Created for the 175th anniversary of Patek Philippe in a 175 pieces limited edition, reference 5275 can be considered one of the technical pinnacles of Patek Philippe production. The development of its movement took 4 years of research and development, with four patents filed specifically for this model.

    Inspired by another celebratory timepiece - reference 3969 launched for the 150th anniversary, which features digital hour display - it vastly improves on the digital hour concept. While the dial features a relatively simple display - the only out-of-the-ordinary detail being the digital hour indication - the complexity of the mechanism powering this masterpiece is simply daunting. Far from being a simple digital hour timepiece, reference 5275 features a number of complications: all the time indications - the seconds, the minutes and the digital hour - proceed by jump intervals, rather than a constant movement. Furthermore, the jumping of the three time indications - at the striking of the minute or of the hour - is perfectly synchronized. On top of this, the model is a chiming piece, indicating the passage of the hour with a crystal clear chime which can be disabled via the slide at 10 o’ clock.

    The present lot in the first example of reference 5275P to be offered publicly in Asia.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. 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.

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.
