Patek Phillippe Preowned Watches Dublin 175th Anniversary Edition

Patek Philippe 5975; The 175th Anniversary Edition

When it comes to luxury timepieces, few brands can rival the legacy and prestige of Patek Philippe. Founded in 1839, this storied Swiss manufacturer has been synonymous with horological excellence for nearly two centuries. To mark its 175th anniversary in 2014, Patek Philippe unveiled a series of limited edition watches that not only honored its rich history but also showcased its continued innovation and mastery in watchmaking. Among these celebratory pieces, the Patek Philippe 5975R-001 stands out as a true masterpiece.

A Tribute to Heritage and Innovation

The Patek Philippe 5975R-001 is part of the Multi-Scale Chronograph series, which was introduced specifically for the 175th anniversary. Limited to just 1300 pieces in total: 400 in each of the metals yellow gold, rose gold and white gold and further limited to 100 pieces in platinum, making this model is a rare and highly sought-after collector's item. Crafted with the meticulous attention to detail that Patek Philippe is renowned for, the 5975R-001 is a testament to the brand’s enduring commitment to excellence.

Exquisite Design

Case and Dial

The 5975R-001 features an 18k rose gold case, measuring 40mm in diameter, which strikes the perfect balance between contemporary and classic proportions. The case design is elegant yet understated, with subtle curves and a polished finish that enhances its luxurious appeal.

The dial of the 5975R-001 is where this timepiece truly shines. The multi-scale chronograph dial is an intricate display of horological art, featuring three logarithmic scales: a telemeter, a tachymeter, and a pulsometer. These scales are beautifully arranged and printed in a way that ensures legibility without overcrowding the dial. The gold applied hour markers and dauphine hands add a touch of refinement, while the absence of a date window maintains the dial’s clean and symmetrical appearance.


Powering the 5975 is the caliber CH 28-520, an automatic movement that exemplifies Patek Philippe’s technical prowess. This movement incorporates a column wheel chronograph mechanism, ensuring smooth and precise operation. Visible through the sapphire crystal case back, the movement is a marvel of engineering, with meticulous finishing and a 21k gold central rotor. It beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and provides a power reserve of up to 55 hours.

Celebratory Engravings

In keeping with its commemorative nature, the anniversary model features special engravings that highlight its significance. The case back bears the inscription “Patek Philippe Genève 175e Anniversaire 1839 – 2014,” underscoring the watch’s role in celebrating the brand’s remarkable journey. Additionally, each piece is individually numbered, adding to its exclusivity and collector’s appeal.

Owning a Patek Philippe is not just about possessing a watch; it is about becoming part of a legacy that spans generations. The 5975 is more than a timekeeping instrument; it is a piece of history, a symbol of enduring craftsmanship, and a testament to the timeless values that Patek Philippe embodies.
