Patek Philippe is famous for delivering its unsurpassed expertise through exquisite timepieces like the new Grandmaster Chime Reference 6300. Announced at this year’s Baselworld watch expo, the $2,3 million timepiece is a new version of Patek’s Grandmaster Chime ref. 5175, which it created in 2014 as a celebration of the brand’s 175th anniversary.
The Grandmaster Chime Reference 6300G features 20 complications, packed in a stunning 16.1mm double-sided 18k white gold watch case. One side is made of ebony black opaline, while the other is white opaline, both behind sapphire crystal. The watch can rotate depending on which complications the wearer likes to show.

The Grandmaster Chime Reference 6300G strikes the time on three gongs: automatically every quarter-hour with the Grande or Petite Sonnerie, accurate to the minute with the minute repeater, an alarm that strikes the preset alarm time, and with the date repeater that acoustically indicates the date on demand.
The timepiece features the manually wound caliber GS AL 36-750 QIS FUS IRM, composed of 1366 parts. Its energy is stored in two double spring barrels. One keeps the movement running for 72 hours, while the other powers the strikework for 30 hours.
