Patek Phillippe launched the Ref. 5531 New York Special Edition in 2017 and now in reference to the same compilation the 5531R-001 was displayed at Baselworld 2018.
The complicated self winding movement R 27 HU is totally designed in house and is made up of 462 parts and wound with a 22k gold micro motor with a hobnail guilloche pattern at its best. Watchbazar loves the blending of the complications where the chime is based on the timezone represented by the city aligned at 12 o’clock ( in simple words it strikes the local time instead of home time like in other repeaters) The dial has an artistic cloisonné enamel showing the Lavaux wine growing region with a rigged boat in motion made of 18k gold and German silver.
The watch sits on a hand stitched chocolate brown aligator leather strap with scales and is fastened with 18k rose gold clasp.
