  • 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. Remarkably, this was the first time Patek Philippe included a second complication to their famed World Time collection. The collection was the epitome of the brand’s long and prestigious history reflecting on complicated movements and aesthetic design.

    The reference 5575G is suited in rich black appeal encircling the serenity of the monochromatic moon phases. Designed with two thin centre discs, the wearer to admire the passage of the moon amongst the starry night as each month progresses. In a twist to their traditional world time complications, the Central European time zone, which typically features the city Paris, was changed to Geneva in honour of the home city of Patek Philippe.

    Graceful 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. Heightening its desirability for the discerned collectors, the present example sits perfectly unmolested within its single-sealed packaging. Fresh-to-the-market offered by the original owner in its complete full accessories, the present example combining rarity and sophisticated good looks, the ref. 5575G is unarguably one of the most intriguing timepiece from the maison’s world time collection.

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.

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.
