Description

Exotic - Rare - And Absolutely Breathtaking! Super Exclusive 175th Anniversary From Patek Philippe

A powerful & striking watch - will definitely draw attention & makes for a great conversation piece.



Say hello to the brand new, limited edition chronograph in celebration of 175 years of Patek Philippe. This new "Multi-Scale Chronograph," as they are calling it, is really a unique offering.


It should come as no surprise that Patek Philippe, one of the world’s premiere watchmakers, cleverly devised a line of timepieces to commemorate its 175th anniversary as a company.


So what you'll see on the dial of the new 5975 are three different scales. This includes a pulsometer scale calibrated to 15 pulsations, allowing physicans to calculate a patient's pulse in far less than one minute. Outside that, you'll see a telemeter scale, which is used to calculate distance based on the difference between the speed of light and the speed of sound. Most often used in military situations, one could calculate how far the enemy was by timing the difference between when you saw a flash of light, and when you heard the sound of fire.

Finally, the third scale is a tachymeter, or a scale used for measuring speed over known distance.

These multi-scale dial watches were most popular during the Second World War and are highly sought after by collectors due to their technical appearance, usefulness, and general rarity. They were often accompanied by two registers that would show running seconds and a 30-minute counter for the chronograph.

But you'll notice the new 5975 has no registers. So, this isn't really a chronograph in the traditional sense of the word; it is really a tool to measure pulse, distance, and speed, not record time in any way (over 60 seconds, that is). It is a very interesting concept to make this Multi-Scale Chronograph without any timing capabilities and it is a choice like this that could make the 5975 an instant cult classic.



A brief breakdown of each scale:

Pulsimeter: taken directly from Patek’s press release: “medical heart rate measurements are expressed as the number of pulses per minute. To accelerate such measurements without having to wait for an entire minute while counting, the Multi-Scale Chronograph has a pulsimeter scale calibrated to 15 heartbeats (GRADUE POUR 15 PULSATIONS). If the Multi-Scale Chronograph is started when the first pulse is felt and stopped on the fifteenth, the pulsimeter scale display the number of pulses per minute. During their daily rounds in the wards, physicians once typically had to take the pulse of over a hundred patients. A pulsimeter watch saved them more than an hour a day.”

Telemeter: in the case of most watches utilizing a telemeter scale, distance from an object is measured in kilometers. The scale’s importance in military history is dually noted, as it was especially useful in determining the range between a gun and its target.

Tachymeter: the most common scale on chronographs. Calculates distance based on speed or speed based on a set amount of time.


Powering the 5975 is Patek’s proprietary caliber CH 28-520, which is an automatic movement, as opposed to a more appropriate manual wind that typically coincides with the company’s chronographs. Featuring a solid gold rotor, column wheel, vertical clutch, and 55 hours of power reserve, the movement comes in at 5.2mm in height, making the watch 10.25mm thick—extraordinarily thin for a contemporary chronograph.

Patek chose to keep the 5975’s movement behind a closed back and a commemorative engraving. Reading “Patek Philippe Geneve 175e Anniversaire 1839-2014,” as well as the buckle.
