5159G-001 White Gold Grand Complications

In order to accommodate months with 31, 30 and 28 days, and february 29 in leap years, a movement must have a mechanical “memory” of four years – or 1,461 days. This function requires a highly sophisticated mechanism, based on a complex system of levers and cams pivoting around their axes. This is a domain in which Patek Philippe has repeatedly leveraged its long-standing competence.

  • Perpetual calendar with retrograde date hand.
  • Moon phases. Day, month, leap year in apertures. Sweep seconds hand.
  • Dial: white opaline, hand-guilloched center, black Roman numerals. Fold-over clasp.
  • Case: white gold. Sapphire-crystal case back protected by a hinged dust cover.
  • Water resistant to 30 m.
  • Case diameter: 38 mm.
  • Height: 11.8 mm.

5370P-001 Split-Second Chronograph

The split-seconds chronograph is one of the three most difficult complications to master, alongside the tourbillon and the minute repeater. It takes a highly sophisticated mechanism to control the two chronograph hands, one of which may be stopped to measure an intermediate or lap time or retain a reference time while the other continues its course unaffected, even by fractions of a second. When released again, the split-seconds hand instantly catches up with the primary hand and the two stacked hands move on together.

  • Split-Seconds chronograph. Instantaneous 30-minute counter.
  • Seconds subdial. Tachymeter scale.
  • Dial: authentic black enamel, gold applied Breguet numerals. 18K gold dial plates.
  • Alligator strap with square scales, hand-stitched, shiny black, fold-over clasp.
  • Case: platinum. Interchangeable full back and sapphire-crystal case back.
  • Water resistant to 30 m.
  • Case diameter: 41 mm. Height: 13.56 mm.
