  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe has always been known for their technical mastery and design excellence, and in 2014 as part of their 175th anniversary celebration, the brand released the limited edition reference 5975 with 400 examples each in yellow, white and rose gold, and 100 examples in platinum. Manufactured exclusively in Patek Philippe’s workshops, this was their first ever automatic chronograph wristwatch. The unusual dial design, reminiscent of early 20th century design, featured no subsidiary dials, but instead a multi-scale layout for instantaneous measurements in telemetry (distance), tachymetry (speed) and pulsations (heart beats). This was the first-time all three measurement scales were seen on one timepiece.

    Powered by the highly regarded in-house caliber CH28-520, the chronograph featured a column-wheel with vertical clutch allowing for the chronograph to function without interfering with timekeeping accuracy. The watch has an Art Deco-style appeal with stepped architectural lugs and solid case back engraved “175 Anniversary 1839-2014”.

    Fresh to the market and offered by the original owner complete with all its accessories, the present watch has remained unused since first purchased in 2015 and remains sealed. This is rare opportunity to own a watch that has its historical past set in the early 20th century, but a 21st century movement.

  • Artist Biography

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    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. 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.
