Meanwhile, the Grand Complication Reference 5316/50P-001 is a new interpretation of the Reference 5316, uniting a minute repeater, a tourbillon, a perpetual calendar with retrograde date hand and a moon-phase indicator. This new version features a sapphire-crystal dial with blue metallisation and black-gradient rim, affording a veiled glimpse of the movement.
Lastly among the grand complications, Patek Philippe is adding two new models to its collection of minute repeaters, under the heading of Rare Handcrafts. The Rare Handcrafts World Time Minute Repeater Reference 5531G-001 is the first minute repeater model that always strikes the local time and the first World Time Minute Repeater in white gold. Its dial is adorned with a Grand Feu cloisonné enamel scene depicting one of the famous steamboats of Lake Geneva.
The Rare Handcrafts Minute Repeater Reference 5178G-012 features a self-winding movement and ‘cathedral’ gongs, whose sound is particularly deep and rich. It features a dial in blue Grand Feu flinqué enamel over a distinctive hand-guilloché swirling pattern.
The Patek Philippe Gondolo and Self-winding Flyback Chronograph with Annual Calendar
Patek Philippe offers a new complicated watch for men with the Self-winding Flyback Chronograph with Annual Calendar Reference 5905R-010. With a rose-gold case and blue sunburst dial, this model represents an alliance between two sought-after Patek Philippe complications: the flyback chronograph and the annual calendar.
Finally, the Gondolo collection sees the return of a watch renowned for its timeless elegance. The Gondolo Serata Reference 4962/200R-001 in rose gold is set with spessartites arranged in a double colour gradient, highlighting the refined curves of the case. The brown-lacquered dial presents a floral decoration with contrasting finishes.
