Patek Philippe: A tribute to legendary craftsmanship

By: Amy Brennan-Stephenson

Patek Philippe: A tribute to legendary craftsmanship
Since 1839, Patek Philippe has been designing and crafting its watches as works of art, reflecting the refined aesthetics of mechanical perfection. The longstanding quest for perfection continues to this day, with the ongoing application of the brand’s ancestral artisanal skill in the current collection.

At its historic headquarters on Rue du Rhône this month, the manufacture has been showcasing an extensive selection of pieces from its latest rare handcrafts collection, all of which epitomise the legendary expertise of the world’s most exquisite watchmaker. To mark the occasion, Patek Philippe have released four new repeater timepieces.

Sky Moon Tourbillon Haut Artisanat, Ref. 6002R-001

This double-face wristwatch, ardently coveted by collectors, brings together twelve complications in an extraordinary way. Among them, is a tourbillon and a minute repeater that strikes on cathedral gongs. Inside a hand-engraved rose gold case is Patek Philippe’s caliber R TO 27 QR SID LU CL, a mechanical manually wound movement which boasts a power reserve of up to 48 hours.

The dial of the second most complicated Patek Philippe wristwatch is brown, combining Grand Feu champlevé and cloisonné enamelling, further examples of the skill of the brand’s artisans.

Minute Repeater with a Perpetual Calendar, Ref. 5374G-001

For the first time, this striking reference 5374 Grand Complication with cathedral gongs comes in a white gold case with a blue Grand Feu enamel dial. At the beating heart of this outstanding piece of watchmaking genius is Patek Philippe’s caliber R 27 Q, a self-winding mechanical movement with a power reserve of 48 hours.

The new Reference 5374G-001 is worn on a shiny dusk blue alligator strap with a white-gold fold-over clasp.
