Lot Essay

Offered in excellent, virtually unworn condition, the present ref. 5975R presesents a rare opportunity for astute collectors to acquire one of the most prized modern Patek Philippe chronographs.

To the best of our knowledge this watch is only the ninth example of this particular model to be offered at auction.

Reference 5975
Launched in 2014, the Patek Philippe reference 5975 multi-scale chronograph was made in a very special limited edition of a total of 1300 watches to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the firm.

400 examples each were produced in yellow gold, pink gold and white gold and 100 in platinum.

What sets the reference 5975 apart from other chronographs is that it was the first automatic chronograph-only wristwatch ever produced by Patek Philippe and furthermore it is the first made without chronograph registers or a subsidiary seconds.

In fact it is a highly accurate true tool watch with three different timing scales: a tachymeter, for calculation of speed over a known distance; a telemeter for determining distance based on a calculation between the speed of light and the speed of sound and a pulsometer, for measuring heartbeats per minute.

Following firmly in the tradition of Patek Philippe's best mid-century vintage chronographs, the dial of the 5975 is a masterful piece of design, managing to remain understated and elegant despite its complexity. The 40 mm. stepped case is superbly rendered with sharp angles and a solid case back, engraved "175è Anniversaire 1839 - 2014", previously unseen on references with complications delivered after the early 1980s.

Fitted with the caliber 28-520 movement stamped with the Patek Philippe Seal, attesting to its impeccable precision and finishing, the precision of the caliber was increased especially for the 5975.
