See how the World’s Most Complex Wrist Watch was Built

A watch completes a man’s outfit, but this watch, well this watch completes a man’s life.

The Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Ref. 5175 was built to pay tribute to its 175th anniversary, and the result is simply breathtaking.

Blending classic chiming complications with brand new ones, the amount of work and dedication put in creating this superb timepiece is fantastic.

It does not only look absolutely spectacular, like we’re already used with the works of Patek Philippe, but it also contains an impressive number of 20 complications.

Just by looking at the stunning 47.4mm in diameter and 16.1mm thick 18K rose gold case, with the superb hand engraved touches, you will simply fall in love with this timepiece.

And that’s not all the case of the Grandmaster Chime has to offer, it also spins between the massive lugs, allowing you to see the two dials. Oh, I forgot to mention about it having two dials?

This watch is a piece of art, and that is why it is considered to be the world’s most complex wrist watch ever made.

With a total number of 1,366 components, this superb timepiece is priced at $2.5 million, and it’s worth every single penny.

But you don’t have to trust me, see for yourself in these pictures, and let us know what you think about it.
