The skeletonized grand complication houses a totally reworked manual movement.
By Roberta Naas | October 21 2020
Created exclusively for the Singapore exhibition held in late 2019, the Patek Philippe Ref. 5303R-010 Minute Repeater Tourbillon Singapore Special Edition skeletonized grand complication houses a totally reworked manual movement (based on one of the brand’s existing grand complication calibers) that was three years in the making. The object of the reconfigured caliber was to be able to showcase the hammers of the minute repeater (which chimes the hours, quarter hours and minutes past the quarter hours) on the dial side. Just 12 pieces were made for the Singapore market. However, the beauty of this new caliber is that it will most likely be used in another watch by the brand in 2021, as the research and development that went into its making are too time-consuming and costly to use for just one edition.
