The Star Caliber 2000 is a proud milestone in the history of watchmaking and merits a publication of appropriate importance. Patek Philippe, in cooperation with Editions Scriptar (Switzerland), published a book devoted exclusively to this extraordinary pocket watch. The richly illustrated and painstakingly detailed work is divided into three chapters: the first sheds light on the development of the watch, the second is dedicated to the poetic aspects of the Star Caliber 2000; the third chapter presents explanations supported by diagrams and photographs which help the reader to understand the technological aspects and innovations which make the Star Caliber 2000 so unusual.
The epic biography of this watch gives an opportunity to discover the enchanting world of the Star Caliber 2000. It offers newcomers to the world of complicated watches and specialists alike, insights into the philosophy of Patek Philippe: to safeguard and preserve the most eminent watchmaking traditions and, at the same time, to develop technical innovations that will delight future generations.
A DVD featuring films of the “Star Caliber 2000” and “10 Days” is included in the book, "A trip into the heart of a watch".
