With an indisputable reputation as one of the foremost watch manufacturers in haute horology, Patek Philippe is most notable for its construction of the repeating complication, a function that is often in correspondence with the pinnacle of watchmaking. 


The art to delivering Patek Philippe’s superlative standard of sound for its minute repeaters can be very difficult to comprehend, as the complication itself would require over 100 unique components taking between 200 and 300 hours of work to manufacture and with an additional of 100 to 200 hours to fine tune the striking mechanism.


This watch, reference 5217, recognised as the sibling reference to the 5216, was the successor of the legendary reference 5016. Featuring multiple highly desired complications from the minute repeater, perpetual calendar to the tourbillon, the pedigree of the watch is further elevated with an instantaneous perpetual calendar which allows the entire calendar function to advance at the same time altogether. 


Already discontinued, the reference 5216 with its unique aesthetic is the perfect illustration of haute horlogerie. The reference 5217 on the other hand, further unites this exemplifier with haute joaillerie. Reserved only for the most important clients after meeting stringent qualifying requirements, this is the first time for the reference 5217 to be offered on the public market. In close to new condition and completed with all accessories, the present watch is one of the greatest Grande Complication wristwatches Patek Philippe had ever created in the 21st century.
