Catalogue Note

Specially designed and produced in a limited edition quantity, reference 5575G along with various other models were created to commemorate the 175th anniversary of Patek Philippe in 2014. To make this iconic World Time rarer still, an innovative moon-phase display was added making this poetic complication come alive in a truly unique way.

The new caliber 240 HU LU was developed explicitly to achieve a harmonious fusion of the world's 24 time zones with the lunar cycle. As a tribute to Patek Philippe’s notable heritage, Central European Time is represented by the city of Geneva instead of Paris as seen in regular world time watches. The design of the round Calatrava case isn't a revolutionary departure from the original models but without crown guards. As a result, the case is now with an uninterrupted line from lug to lug in contrast to its considerably more detailed dial.
