  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe celebrated their 175th anniversary in 2014, releasing a diverse variety of limited edition wristwatches that are today highly sought after by collectors. The reference 5975 chronograph wristwatch with multi-scale dial was one of their most distinctive, honoring the brand’s chronographs from the 1940s and 1950s.
    Housed in a striking 40mm diameter case, the reference 5975 has an impressive dial with 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. Fitted with 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 use of an innovative vertical clutch mechanism. The black 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 just 100 examples made in platinum with black dial making it the rarest and most exclusive version.

    Offered in excellent condition by the original owner, the platinum variant is adorned with a discreet 0.02 carat diamond between the lugs at 6 o’clock. The watch is accompanied by its Certificate of Origin, presentation box and commemorative coin. The present lot is a rare and delightful opportunity for the collector wishing to own a piece of Patek Philippe’s rich heritage of refined technical excellence and elegance.
