Most of the watches produced by Patek Philippe over the years have always been amazed by its ability to totally break the mold with the aesthetic standards of the period in which they were designed. The Patek Philippe Grand Complication Minute Repeater ref. 5078 is one of the most elegant and simple looking minute repeaters, inside a double-gong chiming mechanism marks the hours, quarter hours and the minutes. Only available in 18K rose gold or in Platinum like the present lot, this watch is set on a black alligator strap with transparent case back, inclined bezel, concave lugs and sapphire crystals. The always fascinating complication of minute repeating on gongs is activated by the slide on the band. The White enamel dial with black Roman numerals, outer minute divisions and subsidiary seconds is completed with a beautiful set of Feuille hands. This lot is offered here complete with all its accessories: Box, Certificate of Origin, Engine for Time-Machine and Book.
