Patek Philippe The Art of Watches Grand Exhibition

At The Art of Watches Grand Exhibition New York 2017, Patek Philippe introduced several new special edition watches to commemorate the occasion. Among them, the Reference 5531R-011, 5230G-010 and 5531R-010 shown in the photo above. The Reference 5531 features two of the watchmaker’s most significant complications: the minute repeater and the world time function.

A new self-winding caliber R 27 HU movement powers the rose gold 5531 with a new feature for the classic minute repeater. On this reference, the minute repeater always chimes at local time, not just your home time. This means that you can travel across the globe and it will function based on the local time indicated by the center hands. A patent has been filed for this innovation, which is made possible by the 462 parts of this Patek Philippe movement.

Its cloisonné dial depicts the Manhattan skyline to commemorate the host city of the exhibition. One option depicts New York by Night and the other New York by Day. Both are engraved with “Patek Philippe New York 2017.” The white gold Reference 5230 shown in the middle of the photo is powered by a self-winding caliber 240 HU movement. It too offers world time functionality. This limited edition of 300 pieces features a blue opaline 24-hour disk and a chamfered bezel.

The pusher at 10 o’clock automatically adjusts the time zone in a patented function of the watchmaker. There are a few more special edition watches that were introduced in conjunction with the Grand Exhibition that took place at Cipriani 42nd Street. With many mens and women’s models to choose from, each reinforces the tradition of fine watchmaking that has made Patek Philippe one of the most prestigious watchmakers in the world.

Patek Philippe 5960/1A Annual Calendar Chronograph

Patek Philippe 5960/1A With Black Dial – The Casual Annual Calendar Chronograph

Patek Philippe 5960/1A Ebony Black Opaline Dial

Earlier this year Patek Philippe released a stainless steel configuration of the popular 5960/1A annual calendar chronograph. This version features a black dial on what has become one of the most sophisticated high-end sports watches available today.

Its white 60-minute and 12-hour mono counter offers a bold contrast against the ebony black opaline dial, elegantly displayed between the red sweep-seconds hand and 6 o’clock. The day, date and month appear through apertures at 10, 12 and 2 o’clock.

Pointed gold applied hour markers adorn the circumference of the dial. In addition to the time and date, it displays the power reserve and day/night indicator. Its Caliber CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H mechanical self-winding movement is displayed through a sapphire crystal case back.

The movement measures 33 mm in diameter with a height of 7.68 mm. It vibrates at a frequency of 4 Hz with a maximum power reserve of 55 hours. It contains 456 parts, 14 bridges and 40 jewels. It’s hallmark is the Patek Philippe Seal, the company’s quality benchmark.

The aesthetic of this chronograph incorporates classic elements like an annual calendar mono counter while adhering to a sporty contemporary design standard. The 5960/1A’s stainless steel case measures 40.5 mm in diameter and is fitted with an elegant steel bracelet and fold-over clasp. It is water resistant up to 30 meters.
