In the grand practice of traditional watchmaking, pure minute repeaters, with classic or cathedral gongs that deliver a particularly full and sonorous tones, are coveted by the purist collector.
Although the minute repeater is one of the most challenging Grand Complications to master, Patek Philippe always strives to push the boundaries of technical excellence even further, by combining the minute repeater function with other complications.
In 2014, timed for the company’s 175th anniversary, Patek Philippe presented a quantum leap in the domain of acoustic complications with the launch of the Ref. 5175 Grandmaster Chime, a double-faced wristwatch. This was the first Patek Philippe wristwatch with a grande sonnerie and the manufacture’s most complicated wristwatch to date. This Grand Complication became part of the regular collection in 2016 with the Grand Master Chime Ref. 6300.
It unites 20 complications, including a grande and petite sonneries, a minute repeater, an instantaneous perpetual calendar with a four-digit year display, and two patented world debuts: an acoustic alarm that strikes the preselected alarm time and a date repeater that sounds the current date.
A masterpiece of miniaturization and acoustic perfection: the Ref. 6301P Grande Sonnerie. This grand complication is the manufacture’s first wristwatch that presents the grande sonnerie as the epitome of horological complications in its purest form, complemented with a petite sonnerie and a minute repeater and a jumping subsidiary seconds.
The new, 703-part caliber GS 36-750 PS IRM features six complications, a strikework with three classic gongs and was granted three patents.
