Today’s Haute Time Watch of the Day is The 5216P-001 – Platinum – Men Grand Complications by Patek Philippe.
From The Patek Philippe’s Grand Complications Collection comes a timepiece which certainly represents the history, skill and artistry that makes up the brand.
Released this year, the 5216P-001 features a 39.5 mm Platinum case which houses a Caliber RTO 27 PS QR manual winding movement. This impressive timepiece features a Minute Repeater with tourbillon escapement, Retrograde perpetual calendar, a chime with two gongs in addition to a retrograde date hand, day, month, leap year, moon phases as well as hours, minutes and seconds.
The dial of the 5216P-001 is black lacquer with gold applied hour markers and the case back features an interchangeable full back and a sapphire-crystal case back. The case of the 5216P-001 Platinum – Men Grand complications is both humidity and dust protected, however it is not water-resistant – a small compromise for this impressive Grand Complications created Patek Philippe.
