The one and only Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime made in stainless steel.
The Grandmaster Chime is the first Patek Philippe grande-sonnerie
wristwatch ever added to the company's current collection. The grand
complication Ref. 6300A-010 unites accomplishment and elegance in this
new and unique stainless steel version boasting two dials in rose gold and
black ebony. The reversible case, adorned with a guilloched hobnail pattern,
is notable for its patented reversing mechanism.
This exceptional grand complication features 20 complications in its stainless
steel case, including no fewer than five chiming modes, two of which are
patented world firsts: an acoustic alarm that strikes the preselected time
and a date repeater sounding the date on demand.
The Grandmaster Chime reference 6300A-010 was specially created for the
2019 Only Watch Auction. It stands out as the first and only version of this
exceptional timepiece ever produced in stainless steel. The shine of this
metal, rarely used with a Patek Philippe Grand Complication, is particularly
striking when combined with the hand-guilloched hobnail pattern which
perpetuates the tradition of rare handcrafts. The special words "The Only
One", which appear at 12 o'clock on the auxiliary dial, further enhance the
exclusive value of this unique timepiece.
Complicated watchmaking is the
supreme test of the designer's expertise and watchmakers' skill. Patek
Philippe masters all horological complications and has twice this century
built the world's most complicated portable timepiece.
