To mark its 175th anniversary Patek Philippe Replica has unveiled a first-ever for the Geneva manufacturer – a fully-functioning ‘double-face’ wristwatch, with a quick-release lug design patented to deploy the change-over.
And if that were all,Fake Patek Philippe aficionados the world over would already be salivating. But the watch that bears this new technology has been heralded by company president Thierry Stern, as the most complicated wristwatch it has ever produced.
Given that to mark its 150th anniversary Patek Philippe created what remains the world’s most complex hand-assembled mechanical timepiece, the Calibre 89, it’s not hard to imagine the herculean task required to create the successor.
Happily, the Grandmaster Chime Ref. 5175 is quite some watch. For starters it contains four spring barrels powering 20 complications including Grande and Petite Sonnerie, a minute repeater, The Grandmaster Chime is an astonishing achievement that took a paltry 100,000 hours to conceive and build.an instantaneous perpetual calendar with four-digit year display and a second time zone – as well as two patents pertaining to the chiming mechanism alone: an acoustic alarm that strikes at the alarm time, and a date repeater that sounds the date on demand.
Given the 47mm, laurel-wreathed gold case contains 214 individual parts, it’s not surprising the complexity of the piece required a movement totalling 1,366 separate components. It’s an astonishing achievement that took a paltry 100,000 hours to conceive and build. No wonder then, that the Grandmaster Chime is limited to just seven pieces。
Replica Patek Philippe Ref. 5106
For Only Watch 2009, Patek Philippe has created a unique Ref. 5106 by adding a date display and other special features to the Celestial Ref. 5102. This one-of-a-kind piece is crafted in rose gold with a special guilloché pattern on the 22k rose gold bezel. The soft 22k gold allowed the unique guilloché pattern to be applied with a special hand tool created just for this watch.
This timepiece displays the northern hemisphere night sky rotating counterclockwise, showing the angular progression of the stars relative to the meridian passage of Sirius. At the same time, the display shows the angular position of the moon, its phases and meridian passage. The astronomical displays are created by a series of stacked sapphire crystal discs rotating at different speeds. The celestial background is a blue sapphire crystal disc on a wheel with 279 teeth. This disk reproduces the orbit of the moon, and via a planetary gear train, it also drives a subsidiary crystal disc depicting the waxing and waning of the moon in a small round aperture. Above it, on a wheel with 356 teeth, is a transparent sapphire crystal disc bearing the sky chart on one side and an image of the Milky Way galaxy on the other. For this invention, Patek Philippe was awarded Swiss Patent CH 688 171 B5.
The exhibition case back allows you to view the movement, which consists of 315 parts. The edges of all steel components are beveled and polished, and each tooth of each gear wheel is manually polished with a rotating hardwood disk to reduce friction at the wheel contact points.
This unique timepiece will be offered on September 24 at the Only Watch auction conducted by Patrizzi & Co. during the Monaco Yacht Show. The auction enjoys the high patronage of HSH Prince Albert II, and all proceeds of the sale go to support research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Needless to say, more than 2,000 employees of Fake Patek Philippe also took part in this big event, and confirmed their faith once again: they have paid hard work and efforts to the company that is the most prestigious of the Swiss watchmaking industry: Patek Philippe.
As Patek Philippe has carefully crafted their timepiece works, Patek Philippe has also devoted tireless efforts to the grand celebration and has received a great success. 2,037 square meters of event space were entirely extra constructed, the construction of which took 47 days to complete, and even the demolition work also requires 23 days. The space for the cocktail party and 3D image show were 25 feet tall. The reception area with buffet snacks, commemorative timepieces display and “3D immersive viewing” is located in a 18-meter-tall space. Although there was such a huge amount of work, the six-day event has achieved a great success, so that all have a great return.
