Description

Best known for their Grand Complications watches Patek Philippe masters the “Haute Horlogerie” and are arguably the best in the industry.
In 1989, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the manufacture, Patek Philippe developed what is one of the most complicated portable timepiece in the world: the Calibre 89 with 33 complications but half a century ago in 1932 they had built the “Henry Graves Supercomplication” which had at that time 24 complications, including Westminster chimes, a perpetual calendar, sunrise and sunset times, and a celestial map of New York as seen from Graves’s apartment on Fifth Avenue.
For decades they did held the title of the most complicated watches built. Mastering their craft they perpetuated the skills and traditions to deliver in their current collection pieces of the highest quality.

 

The present model Ref: 5140R was launched in 2007, after its predecessor Ref: 3940 was discontinued after a long run of 20 years (1985 – 2006). It is a classic grand complication featuring a rich brown sunburst dial with the ever-elegant dauphine hands pointing at applied rosegold baton hour indexes.

The polished rosegold case with a stepped domed bezel only adds to the supreme elegance of this grand complication.
At 37mm, it is larger by a millimetre than the Ref: 3940, but retains the same elegant aesthetic.
The dial displays the Perpetual calendar, with leap year and moonphase indicators and a 24-Hr indicator – with pusher adjusters for all the functions.

Seen through the sapphire case back is the gorgeous Caliber 240Q with a microrotor in ceramic and 22K gold winding mass, with a 48hr power reserve. The finish on the movement is impeccable, stamped with the “Patek Philippe” seal of approval.

This “statement of elegance” is offered on a hand-stitched alligator strap with large scales, secured by a deployant clasp with a filigree Calatrava buckle.

Like all Patek Philippe perpetual calendars this is supplied with an automatic watch-winder. Kept wound, it will not require adjustment until the year 2100.

This model was discontinued in 2016 and replaced by Ref: 5327.
