Continuing the legacy of excellence, Patek Philippe unveils an exclusive version of the World Time Minute Repeater (Reference 5531R-014), a testament to their mastery in combining multiple complications seamlessly.

In a showcase of extraordinary craftsmanship, Patek Philippe's commitment to rare handcrafts is revealed through a stunning collection of 40 one-of-a-kind pieces and limited editions.
