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 is the blue dial version of the first 5073P released at BaselWorld 2015, initially made with black dial since 2011.
It’s fitted with a perpetual calendar and a minute repeater in a 42mm platinum case.
This blue variant didn’t last long in the catalogue, only 2 years, very few pieces were made and therefore is a rare-sight to even see one.  Bezel, lugs and buckle are set with over 145 baguette diamonds for an approximate ~5.2 ct.
