Lot Description

Model: Box
Dimensions: 44 × 44 × 12 cm

The Grandmaster Chime is the most complicated wristwatch ever made by Patek Philippe, with twenty complications, a reversible case and six patented innovations. A good 100000 hours were required for the development, construction and assembly of this timepiece. It is such a complex watch that one side of the watch was never going to be sufficient to show all of its complications. For such an incredible watch an equally impressive box was absolutely necessary, the result is the lot here offered a large box with attention to every detail and equipped with every sort of accessory. Starting with the Art Deco decorations on the outer angles of an inner octagon and the USB pen signed Patek, passing through the Patek’s loupe and leather wallets until ending with gloves, earphones and watch roll.
