Patek Philippe Grandes Complications – the crowning glory of the watchmaking world
Each and every Patek Philippe is an example of a watch that has been crafted by master craftsmen using the finest materials and the greatest attention to detail. The pinnacle is the Patek Philippe Grandes Complications line. These highly complex watches bear witness to the virtuosity of this world-renowned Geneva manufacture, which has been a pioneer of watchmaking since the company was founded in 1839.
Masterpieces of lasting value
Among the complications present in the Patek Philippe Grandes Complications watches is the perpetual calendar, for example, which has a complex mechanism that correctly displays all calendar indications until the year 2100. The minute repeater, which has been perfected by Patek Philippe for over 150 years, deserves special mention too. Its distinctive sound that can be heard when the hours, quarters and minutes are struck is considered a benchmark for acoustic time indication. There's also the tourbillon which is used to compensate for the positional error of the hairspring, the double chronograph and various astronomical displays. Each Patek Philippe Grande Complication showcases a highly complex mechanism, which reflects the skill and experience of generations of master watchmakers. To reflect this complexity, the Patek Philippe Grandes Complications are made exclusively from the finest metals – platinum, white, yellow and rose gold, all of which give them lasting value.
