With a fresh and distinctive appearance, the Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime watch is highly complex and has attained the top position in Patek Philippe’s ranking of the most complicated regularly produced wristwatches. The double-face watch features 20 complications, including five chiming functions,two of which are patented world debuts. The Grandmaster Chime watch has a white gold case a hand guillochéd hobnail pattern and a patented reversing mechanism, allowing the watch to be worn with either dial facing up.
This Patek Philippe watch strikes the time on three gongs, indicating the time every quarter-hour, a preset alarm, and with the date repeater that acoustically indicates the date on demand. The front black dial indicates the time, a second time zone, Moon phases, date and power reserve; while the opposite white dial is dedicated to the perpetual calendar. The manually-wound calibre GS AL 36-750 QIS FUS IRM, composed of 1366 parts – ticks between the two solid-gold dials, and its energy is stored in two double-spring barrels with a 72-hour power reserve.
