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 watch is a rare 5971 reference (2010) it is the gem-set version of the standard 5970 series which  houses the last non in-house perpetual calendar movement, it is based on a Lemania ébauche although heavily modified and finished by Patek Philippe.
The 40mm case is set with 42 baguette-cut diamonds, made in a very small quantity only.
