Patek Philippe Triple Complication, Ref. 5208P

Posted by Bert on Jan 20, 2012 6:33:30 PM

If ever there was a watch born to immediate collectors’ status, this is it. The 5208P is the second most complicated watch ever made by the brand that holds the record for creating the world’s most complicated watch, the Sky Moon Tourbillon – which sold at Antiquorum in 2007 for over $1.2-million, the top price achieved for a watch at auction. What makes 5208P even better than its one-of-a-kind counterpart is that it is part of Patek’s regular collection (if “regular” is the right word). The 5208P is a self-winding chronograph, minute repeater and instantaneous calendar with aperture displays. Reassuringly high-tech supercomponents include Pulsomax escapement, Spiromax balance spring and various silicon-derived materials. You can only get it at Patek’s Geneva salon, but it is well worth the trip.
