Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time

For its 175th anniversary Patek Philippe introduced the stunning and very limited 5175R.  The Grandmaster Chime took an astonishing 8 years to develop, and contains 20 complications made up of 1,366 parts. Two of the complications were actually the first of their kind.  The price tag on this 18 karat rose gold hand engraved masterpiece was a whopping $2,500,000.  Only 7 watches were created, one of which is in the Patek Philippe museum. The other 6 were immediately sold, which makes chances of seeing one of these babies slim to none.  There is another option if you want to see this amazing time piece, check out this video on the design and fabrication of the most complicated watches in the history of Patek Philippe.
