Patek Philippe, established in 1839, is widely regarded as one of the best watchmakers in the world. The Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime, the brand’s most complicated wristwatch with 20 complications, was released as a limited edition in 2014, proving the brand’s supreme mastery. This 2016 addition to the current collection is remarkable for the five different chiming modes it offers, including an alarm that can be set to sound at a specific time and a date repeater that can sound the current date when requested.

At Watches and Wonders 2023, Patek Philippe debuted five new designs for its signature Grand Complication watches.

The brand is reimagining the double-face reversible case, which features a patented rotation mechanism, by introducing it in white gold and rose gold bicolor iteration for the first time. This new Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Reference 6300GR-001 is distinguished by its two-tone chestnut brown patinated alligator strap and bicolor folding buckle, as well as its two-tone brown opaline dials with a hand-guilloched Clous de Paris or hobnail pattern on the side displaying the time of day.

Both the baguette-cut diamond Reference 6300/400G-001 and the baguette-cut diamond and blue sapphire Reference 6300/401G-001 versions of the Grandmaster Chime were released by Patek Philippe in 2022 to draw attention to the watch’s impeccable mechanism.

The Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Haute Joaillerie Reference 6300/403G-001 is a dazzling example of the “baguette” and “invisible” setting techniques, and represents the brand’s latest collaboration between haute horlogerie and haute joaillerie. Featuring a hand-guilloched Clous de Paris or hobnail pattern on the time side and a shiny black alligator leather strap with emerald-green hand stitching, this timepiece is truly one-of-a-kind.

In 2017, they released Reference 5316, one of the most impressive watches ever made. It combines a minute repeater, a tourbillon, a perpetual calendar with a retrograde date hand, and a moon-phase indicator. With a platinum case and a sapphire-crystal dial featuring blue metallization and a black-gradient rim, Patek Philippe gives this timepiece a distinct new modern allure in the Grand Complication Reference 5316/50P-001.

A pair of white gold cufflinks with a rose gold Calatrava cross and a brown opaline inlay complement the timepiece.
