Lot Essay

Offered in pristine condition, fresh to the market and with the full set of accessories, this watch is believed to be one of only 5 examples of ref. 5975P to have appeared in putlic to date.

It presents the rare opportunity for astute collectors to acquire one of the most prized modern Patek Philippe chronographs: one of the only 100 examples of the reference 5975 cased in platinum, the back engraved “Patek Philippe Genève 175e Anniversaire 1839-2014”, and a single diamond set between the lugs at 6 o’clock.

Reference 5975
Part of the Patek Philippe 175th anniversary limited edition commemorative series introduced in 2014, the reference 5975 is the first self-winding chronograph-only wristwatch ever produced by the manufacture. It is also the firm's first chronograph without registers or subsidiary seconds and differs from previous Patek Philippe wristwatches through its multi-scale dial. Featuring a telemeter scale to compute distances, tachymeter scale for speed and pulsation scale for heart beats, the reference 5975 is the first Patek Philippe chronograph to enable all these measurements. Following firmly in the tradition of Patek Philippe's best mid-century vintage chronographs, the dial of the 5975 is a masterful piece of design, managing to remain understated and elegant despite its complexity.

Fitted with the caliber 28-520 stamped by the Patek Philippe Seal, attesting of its impeccable precision and finishing, the wristwatch is delivered only with a solid case back, engraved 175e Anniversaire 1839-2014, previously unseen on references with complication delivered after the early 1980s.

With first examples delivered in 2014, the chronograph was instantly adopted by collectors of the brand.
