As expected, the Swiss manufacturer of luxury timepieces has created the most amazing clock for this occasion – Grandmaster Chime. This watch is a work of art and mechanical wonder, and is presented in a hand-engraved case of rose gold, which has a diameter of 47.4mm and which is connected to 20 mechanisms, with no less than 1,366 parts. The most incredible mechanism of all the grande sonnerie, is also one of the hardest constructed mechanisms in watchmaking which automatically means classes and three fourth classes sound a gong. In addition to this mechanism, there is a perpetual calendar.
Only seven of these horological masterpieces will be created, and their price will be $2.7 million. Six of them will be available for purchase, and the seventh will be on display at the Patek Philippe Museum in Geneva.
