    Property from the Estate of an Important American Collector

    In celebration of its 175th anniversary in 2014, Patek Philippe presented a chronograph honoring its prestigious past in a playfully contemporary manner.

    The dial of reference 5975 is a tribute to Patek Philippe's chronographs of the 1940s and 1950s, featuring a lovely three scale indication with a telemeter on the outermost scale for the calculation of distances, a pulsometer graduated for 15 pulsations for the calculation of heartbeats, and a tachymeter for the computation of speed. Surprisingly the watch can be mistaken for a simple three handed watch as Patek Philippe decided to forego the habitual chronograph sub dials.

    The 40mm yellow gold case takes up the equilibrium of the dial, playing both with its classical appearance of a rather slim case with rectangular pushers and extremely contemporary sharply stepped and aggressive lugs, giving the watch a definitive edge.

    Made in a limited edition of 400 pieces in yellow, pink and white gold, and 100 pieces in platinum, it is extremely rare to find a ref 5975 on the secondary market. The present lot fuses with a cavalcade of details all pointing to the extreme craftsmanship and artistic inclination of modern Patek Philippe timepieces whose designs are never a repetition of the past but tributes to Patek Philippe’s ability to take the pulse of its effervescent history.

    The present lot, property of the original owner's family, is a timepiece for the collector wishing to own a piece of Patek Philippe’s prestigious history.

    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.
