Introducing: The ref. 5303R-001
A grand complication whose complexity can be admired while worn on the wrist.
First making its world debut as a limited edition of 12 watches at the “Watch Art Grand Exhibition Singapore 2019”, the Ref. 5303 Minute Repeater Tourbillon now joins the Patek Philippe regular collection with a refreshed design.
The first Patek Philippe Grand Complication with a minute repeater offering – on the dial side – a clear view of the striking mechanism’s hammers and gongs, it has been created explicitly for connoisseurs of chiming watches.
A true example of combining technical complexity, with innovative yet elegant design. Constituting a new expression of Patek Philippe’s creative philosophy, centered on the pleasure of the user.
This new grand complication was created explicitly for connoisseurs of striking watches. It stands out with its open architecture that allows the minute repeater mechanism including the hammers and gongs to be admired in action while the watch is being worn on the wrist. The aesthetic appeal of the manually wound caliber R TO 27 PS was subtly reworked to highlight its full beauty. The rose-gold case features white-gold intarsias engraved with foliage motifs.
