  • Catalogue Essay

    In the latter half of the 20th century, Patek Philippe began to issue limited edition timepieces, which were manufactured as a celebration of an anniversary, or recognition of a long-term retailer relationship. In 1989, the brand released an exceptional collection of watches to celebrate their 150th anniversary, with two iconic limited edition timepieces, the reference 3960 “Officier” time only wristwatch, and the highly attractive tonneau-shaped Jump Hour watch, reference 3969. Twenty-five years later, as part of their 175th anniversary celebrations, Patek Philippe again issued a new line of limited edition watches, and the reference 5975G chronograph wristwatch with multi-scale dial was one of the most distinctive, honouring their chronographs from the 1940s and 1950s.

    Released in 2014, the 5975 was housed in a striking 40mm diameter case, and its dial featured three scales permitting instantaneous measurements: a pulsometer, calibrated to 15 pulsations for heart rate, a telemeter scale to indicate distance based on the speed of light and speed of sound, and a tachymeter, used to measure speed over distance. Housing Patek Philippe’s in-house, automatic chronograph caliber, the CH28-520, the chronograph mechanism is able to operate at all times with no effect on accuracy or additional wear due to the innovative vertical clutch mechanism. The silvered opaline dial is brilliant, with an enamel-like shimmering effect, and its case, with stepped Art Deco-style lugs are another pleasing nod to the past. The model was produced in 400 examples in yellow, white and pink gold, with 100 examples in platinum with black dial.

    Consigned by the original owner, factory sealed and in new condition, this fine wristwatch is offered with its Certificate of Authenticity, presentation box, attestation and commemorative coin. It is a tribute to the craftsmanship, and artistic design of a brand that has remained a driving force of horology for over 175 years.
