The book produced by Patek Philippe is dedicated entirely to the centerpiece of the manufacture’s 175th anniversary: the Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime, uniting fine watchmaking and the rare handcrafts. The anniversary’s masterwork, the Grandmaster Chime grand-complication wristwatch reinvents the music of time with a Grande Sonnerie, a Petite Sonnerie, a minute repeater and two unprecedented functions: an alarm that strikes the alarm time, and an acoustic date indication.

This unique repertoire, enriched by an instantaneous perpetual calendar, is housed in a magnificent double-face case lavishly hand-engraved with a decoration of laurel leaves and fitted with a revolutionary reversing mechanism. The book follows the timepiece from its conception to its assembly in the manufacture’s workshops and also provides a wealth of technical detail. It is intended to enable both specialists and newcomers to the world of the complicated watch to immerse themselves in the GrandMaster Chime’s features.

Published as a limited edition, this work offers a splendid insight into Patek Philippe’s philosophy: that of preserving the finest horological and craft traditions while developing the technical innovations that will be enjoyed by future generations.
