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.

 

Among the high complications released by Patek Philippe in 2017 was the reference 5178G-001, notable for its inclusion of the mighty Minute Repeater equipped with “cathedral” gongs. These gongs, which are twice as long as ordinary ones, set a new standard in the realm of horological sound quality and clarity.

Enclosed within a 40mm white gold case, the model exudes an aura of sophisticated elegance. Through this offering, the brand’s dedication to marrying traditional aesthetics with cutting-edge technological advancements is showcased. Additionally, the unveiling of a smaller variant, encased within a 38mm case and known as reference 5078G-001, provided aficionados with an option that caters to their stylistic preferences without compromising the esteemed functionalities of the watch.

While both the 5078G and 5178G are equipped with the same self-winding Caliber R 27 PS, the 5078G came fitted with classic gongs, while the 5178G is equipped with “cathedral gongs” which provide a richer and deeper resonance. The other difference besides the case size is the 6-hour marker found on the 5178G.

Adorned with a cream enamel dial, the stage is set for the gold-applied Breguet numerals. These numerals, embodying a storied tradition in watch design, imbue the piece with a timeless elegance, rendering it a highly sought-after collectible. The selection of enamel for the dial not only enhances the visual appeal but also underscores the brand’s commitment to a harmonious blend of durability and aesthetic beauty.

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