Celebrating the 175th anniversary of the manufacture, reference 5975 is the first self-winding chronograph-only wristwatch ever produced by Patek Philippe. First chronograph of the manufacture without registers or subsidiary seconds, it furthermore differs from previous Patek Philippe wristwatches through its multi-scale dial. Featuring a telemeter scale to compute distances, tachymeter scale for speed and pulsation scale for heart beats, reference 5975 is the first Patek Philippe chronograph to enable all these measurements.
Built with the caliber 28-520 stamped by the Patek Philippe seal, attesting of its impeccable precision and finishing, the wristwatch is delivered only with a solid case back, engraved 175th anniversary 1839-2014, previously unseen on references with complication delivered after the early 1980s.
With first examples delivered in 2014, the chronograph was instantly adopted by collectors of the brand. Part of a limited production, only 400 watches were cased in yellow gold.
Offered in unworn condition, the present wristwatch comes with all its accessories and represents a rare opportunity for astute collectors to acquire one of the most prized modern Patek Philippe chronographs.
