  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe celebrated its 175th anniversary with a special collection of limited edition watches, including the famous world’s most complicated wristwatch ever produced the ref. 5175 with only 7 exquisitely crafted examples. Since the acquisition of Patek Philippe by the Stern family in 1935 during the “Great Depression”, the firm has excelled in manufacturing luxury timepieces at the highest level in horology. Already familiar with Patek Philippe, the Stern family was a frequent supplier for the manufacturer before the acquisition, as the family was one of the most esteemed dial makers in the industry. With tremendous experience and legacy in the trade, the family values were transcended to Patek Philippe when the Stern’s took the reign. Forward three generations later and headed by the capable Thierry Stern, the firm continues to succeed and excel in the utmost peak of the industry.

    In 2014, as part of the celebrated collection, the reference 5575G was introduced with only 1,300 examples produced. For the first time, Patek Philippe introduced the famous world time with an additional charm, the moon phase. The moon itself is immensely realistic, yet retaining its elegance against a nocturnal starry sky, the whole skyscape made possible by two sophisticated and highly complex moon phase discs rotating according to the actual orbit of the moon.

    The present example is a double factory sealed ref. 5575G world time with all the accessories accompanying the present watch. A fantastic chance to acquire an important milestone from the world’s most prestigious family owned manufacturer of luxury timepieces.
