Description

The origins of the minute repeaters can be traced back to 17th century, but the notable application of the mechanism in watches can be credited to A.L. Breguet. He designed a mechanism that would strike the hours, quarters and minutes with hammers hitting a set coiled wire gongs providing different tones. In 1839, Patek Philippe made its first repeater pocket watch. And in 1924, the maison created its first minute repeater wristwatch. The complication has evolved extensively over the past century and today there are at least 21 types of gongs utilized by Patek in their Minute Repeaters.

One of the most elegant time-only minute repeaters from the house of Patek Philippe is the Ref 5078. Originally introduced in 2005, it featured a rose gold case with a white enamel dial and black elongated roman numerals. In 2008, the platinum version reference 5078P-010 with a black enamel dial was launched. This was discontinued in 2017 making way for our current reference the 5078G-001.

 

The present reference 5078G-001 was introduced in 2017,  This gorgeous timepiece is different from its predecessors in the sense that it features a novel cream enamel dial and applied Breguet numerals in white gold and Breguet hands. This revisited aesthetic takes its elegance to a whole new level. The 38mm case is made in white gold and comes with an interchangeable full back and sapphire-crystal case back.

On the inside is the manufacture caliber R 27 PS powering the hours, minutes, small seconds and the petite sonnerie, activated by the sliding level along the case band.

This timeless elegance is offered on a hand-stitched, shiny chocolate brown alligator strap with a white gold deployant buckle.
