This specific movement and watch mark the finish of the Patek Philippe design guide. The brand does not screen its tourbillons. They can’t be viewed through the cutouts in the switch; there’s no skeletonization to expose all of them; they don’t exist as some kind of vaudeville attraction. Their role is actually purely clockwork. The same reasoning helps explain the text on the dial: the presence of the term “tourbillon” and the appearance from the individual movement numbers within the small seconds display each originate from the chronometer competitors timepiece.
This Patek Philippe discretion has positioned this in a different field from the beginning, turning its back within the tacky stupidity that has vulnerable to devour the tourbillon. The name of the timepiece itself is a testimony to their excellent quality: by adding the words " ten Jours" before the word " tourbillon", the rotary realignment mechanism is some kind of the panacea for all things. Change your head. This complication offers indeed been used in not many timepieces in the brand’s historical past. From the days when Patek Philippe’s timing specialists mainly sought success in keeping time and chronometer competitions, the goal has remained unchanged: operating precision above all else.
That have not stopped companies from having to pay special attention to finishes — quite the opposite. The brand still makes sure that all its timepieces should receive the Geneva Seal. The actual progressively receding triple oblong case stretches longitudinally along with longer lugs. Even though it can made of platinum, the finish will be exemplary, a hard-to-machine as well as lustrous material. The convex design of the case complements the actual curve of the wrist, additional incorporating Art Deco type. The sapphire crystal situation was also convex, that was almost unprecedented at the time: in 2003, the machining of the double-convex sapphire crystal was obviously a real achievement; it is hard to assume the price of this component by yourself.
The solid rose gold call is marked with unimaginably elegant 1920s applied Persia numerals. As for the movement, each and every conceivable level of complexity continues to be poured into it. 6 in the 29 jewels are occur the yellow gold bezel. The wide tourbillon bridge provides two blade-like circular hands shaped into an oval form by a file and shine. The steel cage weighs in at only 0. 3g, that is very light and ideal for the time. It’s completely hand-finished: chamfered, polished and satin-brushed, which the brand estimates may be the equivalent of a full week’s work. The working hours around the chronograph are not mentioned, however the brand firmly promises which its tourbillon will obtain no more than one second inside average time per day and also lose no more than two secs on average, and it’s not hard to assume the process taking much longer than normal.

Since then, Patek Philippe has rarely produced tourbillons. The brand sees them because what they were doing between 1940s and 1970s: since extraordinary creations; literally, the particular exception to the rule. Since it turns out, the 28-20/222 movements remains the only movement of the trademark to offer a tourbillon with no of the other famous problems. It now comes with a minumum of one minute repeater. Patek Philippe has never opened the floodgates, preferring to prevent a massive embrace the number of its movements along with models. Nor has it actually lowered the finish and time of its timepieces. The legacy is chronological in addition to historical in nature, therefore contributing to the company’s continued as well as discreet confirmation of it is supremacy.
