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.

 

This very elegant timepiece has a round case of 37mm in platinum surrounding a beautiful silver dial with vertical brushing. This dial reflects the perfect balance of color with the lovely gold hands with luminescent coating and the gold hour markers. The perpetual calendar function is displaying the day, date, month and leap year but also the 24-hours indication and the moon-phases with the inscription “Advance Research” at 6 o’clock.

This inscription is the result of a new development using silicon and this time called Silinvar component called GyromaxSi.

All this is visible through the sapphire case-back and also has a magnified section over the GyromaxSi balance so you can admire it.

Fix the brown alligator strap to enjoy this very rare timepiece!

** Limited Edition of only 300 pieces **
