Patek Philippe Grand Complications Celestial Sky Moon in White Gold 44mm with Date
Latest Release from Patek!!!
No doubt- One of the most sought after Patek Philippe watches ever released. The latest and rarest Release from Patek Philippe….. Now in a Larger 44mm case and features a date. This is Patek Philippe’s Latest Creation which bears their own new “PP” Seal Movement which is engraved on the back. The Patek Philippe brand offers watches of the highest quality matched with incredible style. The Patek Philippe Celestial is a very special timepiece. Introduced at the Basel Fair, the Celestial depicts the night sky as it appears over Geneva Switzerland. The astronomical display utilizes a system of rotating sapphire plates, which turn at different speeds and are layered, to reproduce the relationships of the various celestial bodies at various times. The watch also indicates moon phase. Patek Philippe reports calculating 25 trillion “ratio combinations” to arrive at the most accurate possible system for measuring the movement of the stars. I could go into the mechanics of the watch, but suffice to say that building a mechanism to animate such an amazing cosmological microcosm was a feat uniquely suited for Patek’s master watchmakers.
Case is solid White Gold with dimensions of 44mm wide by 10mm thick. The case sides are embossed with the Calatrava Cross, to very nice effect. Sapphire crystals front and back. Crown at 2 o’clock sets the time and winds the watch. The crown at 4 o’clock is for setting the astronomical display.
Dial is blue and displays the aforementioned information. There is an elliptical window which is marked with the cardinal directions for orienting the celestial display to true north. There is a roman numeral elaborated minutes and hours chapter at the dial’s edge. Skeletonized “Feuille” style hands.
