Minute Repeating Pocket Watch by Patek Philippe
Crafted by famed watchmaking house Patek Philippe, this exceptional pocket watch is a true masterpiece of horological craftsmanship. Meticulously crafted in Switzerland, this extraordinary timepiece showcases the pinnacle of luxury and precision.
Housed within an impressively thin 18k yellow gold case, the highlight of this pocket watch is its captivating minute repeater function. Widely regarded as the apex of horological complications, the watch produces a melodious chime, allowing you to audibly perceive the time down to the minute, even in the absence of light. The intricate chiming mechanism comes to life with the push of a button producing an enchanting sequence of sounds that announces the hour, quarter-hour, and minute on two separately tuned gongs coiled within the case with exquisite clarity and precision.
The face features a classically styled two-piece white enamel dial that evokes a sense of timeless elegance. Ornate gold filigree hands indicate the time upon black Arabic numeral hour markers with contrasting red minute markers. An eye-catching subsidiary seconds dial sits at the 6 o’clock position outlined with black milliseconds markers and red numerals that compliment the minute indicators perfectly.
At the heart of this complex pocket watch lies a staggering 31-jewel manual wind movement, painstakingly adjusted to 8 positions.
This masterpiece is marked with the prestigious Patek Philippe Geneva Switzerland signature on the dial, inside case, and movement. This dust cover is engraved “Made for Greenleaf, Crosby Co of Jacksonville FLA”
