Self-winding

This self-winding minute repeater is endowed with “cathedral” gongs that are twice as long as ordinary ones and thus deliver a particularly full and sonorous tone. With its white-gold case, cream colored enamel dial, and applied Breguet numerals in gold, it flatters the eye as well.

Minute repeaters
Q&A with Thierry Stern

In this exclusive interview, Thierry Stern talks openly of his affection for minute repeaters - his favorite of all the complications. From his earliest childhood memories through to his vision of future developments, he reaffirms the personal contribution that he insists on making with every minute repeater timepiece that is created by Patek Philippe - just as his father, his grandfather and his great-grandfather did.
