Patek Philippe 5303R-001-new minute repeater with tourbillon
You may have heard that Patek Philippe fake invested 600 million Swiss francs in its new plant in Plan-les-Ouates, which was completed earlier this year. If you want to know how much money has been spent, and how the Stern family envisioned a balance between maintaining tradition and looking forward to the future, then please take a look at the latest minute repeater 5303R-001, it will give you a good impression .
The rose gold 5303R is a slightly modified version of the special edition, limited to the twelve pieces exhibited at the “Singapore Watch Art Exhibition 2019” last year. The design that has been unveiled will become a normal part of the extraordinary Grande Complications and be novel in two different ways. First, until this model was proposed, there had never been a manufacturer’s minute clock device with a striking mechanism visible from the dial side.
Secondly, it is also unusual: the movement can now see the tourbillon unobstructed on the dial side. Traditionally, Patek Philippe’s tourbillon can only be admired through the sapphire crystal back cover. This means that the wearer is usually aware of the intrinsic value of the watch, but this value will not be presented to the outside world. Of course, this is the best form of understatement, but at the same time, it will be strange on a skeleton model such as 5303R-001. Therefore, this new model can be interpreted as an expression of attitude, that is, people should never give up the willingness to explore new ways while remaining faithful to the core value of the brand.
What is certain is: the minute repeater is placed in a stable position in Patek Philippe copy DNA in various forms. As early as 1845, the first pocket watch with the minute repeater function was produced. Since then, the expertise in this field has continued to expand, usually using custom and commissioned designs, but at the same time, it also has great expectations for ordinary series. Enthusiasm – if you can really call these timepieces “normal”.
Currently, these are various minute repeaters, combining various other complexities, from reference number 5078 (enamel dial with small seconds) to reference number 5178, 5531 (with world time function), 5374 (with perpetual calendar), 5208 (with chronograph and perpetual calendar), 5207 and 5316 (both with tourbillon and perpetual calendar), astronomical tourbillon 6002 and Grandmaster Chime 6300, which combine no less than twenty complications-including five percussion Features.
Therefore, it can be quickly deduced that minute repetition is the core of watchmakers around Patek Philippe’s chief developer Philip Barat.
These pictures show how spectacular 5303 has become. Only a true watch fan might look at his wrist so frequently that others around him begin to suspect that he is in a hurry. However, when watching a clock, it is not actually time, but the pleasure of watching a watch. In a minute repeater fashion copy watch equipped with a tourbillon, the contented owner can and may be immersed forever.
To achieve this goal, the basic calibre 103 has been rebuilt, which is the basis for all Patek Philippe minute repeaters since 1991. result? Caliber R TO 27 PS. In order to display the striking mechanism at the ten o’clock position of the dial, the bottom plate was enlarged to 31.6 mm and the support bridge of the hammer was added. In addition, the plate has been punched to expose the tourbillon. Each part (including the time wheel) has been skeletonized, and the rake used to count a quarter of an hour and a quarter of an hour has been modified and repositioned.
Similarly, the small gong, which is usually located under the bridge, is moved to the side of the dial. In addition, the transparent sapphire crystal disc above the lower dial can display the small seconds with a red hand, while protecting the tourbillon from ultraviolet radiation.
All in all, the internal working principle of this 5303R is fascinating. It is characterized by contrasting contrast marks or skull hands with rose gold, white gold and stainless steel and black embellishments (such as a narrow hour ring with minute scale). The art deco techniques from Geneva stripes to circular textures and satin finishes are also outstanding.
Visually, this small artwork is inspired by the Minute Repeater Reference 5104 with perpetual calendar and transparent dial, which was first launched in 2007, and Reference 5304R, which was launched in 2014-but it uses automatic rather than manual winding. Movement, and it is not allowed to view the impact mechanism.
Perhaps every collector has a different understanding of Patek Philippe’s core values. However, for the watch house, it is particularly important that every fan of the brand may be certain that Patek Philippe wants to achieve the greatest degree of technical complexity and wants to adapt to this requirement in the smallest possible situation. Today’s inspiration is the same as that of fifty years or more.
With a diameter of 42 mm and a height of 12.13 mm, the 5303R is indeed a difficult task for such an excellent watchmaking industry. Particularly beautiful is the repeated “leaf” leaves, which first appeared in the black hollow hands, found on the back of the movement, and decorated the sides or sliders of the minute repeater. Here, the pattern is white gold, which is in good agreement with the other dominant rose gold. Only those who are not big fans of bicolor will be happy.
One can write rationally or even indeed: “If assigned to you, you can buy a very special minute repeater watch with a tourbillon for about 661,000 Swiss francs in the future. The watch is composed of 356 parts and has at least 40-hour power reserve. Equipped with a manual winding movement with a beating frequency of 3 Hz or 21,600 half a turn. A watch that is dust-proof, moisture-proof but not waterproof. “However, these facts simply cannot meet the requirements of 5303. Everyone who is passionate about the art and science of timepieces knows that 5303R-001 is not only that, but for themselves, just looking at these pictures is enough.
Patek Philippe has done even more with 5303R-001. It allows the wearer not only to see the time, but also to hear the time, which is a truly happy moment for every watch enthusiast. But to make it presented in this unique design and be able to actually watch it at work, it is really special-not to mention that in this case, the sound and tone of the minute repeater can move freely than it. Use the dial to slow down.
It is worth mentioning that CEO Thierry Stern personally carefully checked the sound quality of each repeater model. Especially this Discount fake watch is also a piece of history. Committed to the pursuit of perfection, constantly changing and faithful to their values. Perhaps it also shows that, especially in challenging times, people will not stop or rest assured, but will continue to strive for the best situation and distract consumers from the current art world by creating the most beautiful things in other ways. . The last question now is: what will be created in the new factory building in the future?
