Patek Philippe Ref. 5470P-001 1/10 Second Monopusher Chronograph
Patek Philippe presents their first wristwatch with a new, quite precise, high-performance movement competent at measuring short periods involving tenths of a second.
With this new fantastic complication, the Geneva-based company presents a hand-wound activity with two separate wathe mechanisms and sweeping arms. One of them represents a 10th of a second-precisely and very evidently. This high-tech high-frequency mobility (5 Hz) contains thirty-one patents, with 7 brand new patents dedicated to the new process.
Featuring a platinum eagle case with a blue face and red accents, this particular 1/1-second monopusher chronograph are going to be produced in small batches due to intricacies involved in producing this kind of extremely complex timepiece.
At Patek Philippe, chronographs have a rich as well as long tradition. Since 1856, the manufacturer has distinguished on its own for its outstanding assets, featuring its pocket chronographs with or without rattrapante, often combined with other issues such as the perpetual calendar or perhaps the minute repeater.
Around 1930-1931, the manufacturer possibly developed a pocket view with a tenth of a subsequent chronograph. Today, it can be popular in the Patek Philippe Adult ed (Inv. P-340).
Back in 1923, Patek Philippe was commissioned to produce the initial split-seconds chronograph. From 1927, the first wrist chronographs with or without rattrapantes in regular production put into practice this piece, including the well-known Ref. 130 from 1934 to the early 1960s.
The first decades from the third millennium were specially prolific in the field of short-term dimensions. Since 2005, Patek Philippe has developed a range of chronograph actions with and without more complications (rapt-sweep, minute repeater, perpetual calendar, annual date, world time), all in the actual manufacture's workmanship. Designed and also produced in the workshop.
These chronograph motions feature several innovations along with patented optimizations. Today, they can be embedded in a regular selection with more than 20 different styles for girls and men.
Condensation of Mechanical Achievements To further push the particular boundaries of mechanical wrist watches and please high-tech enjoy lovers, Patek Philippe chose to develop its first hand wrist chronograph movement capable of calculating and displaying tenths of any second.
Just for this, the engineers used a proprietary movement developed over the past 2 decades. It is the CH 29-535 PLAYSTATION calibre introduced in 2009; this reflects the traditional architecture (manual winding, column wheel command, horizontal wheel clutch), superior by six patented innovative developments, complemented by a calibre along with two sweeps Split-second variation with chronograph hand (CHR 29-535 PS).
The first task is to boost the frequency of exercise. Typically the CH 29-535 PS motion has a frequency of some Hz (28, 800 semi-oscillations per hour, making the movement in addition to chronograph hands beat 6 times per second), plus the CH 29-535 PS movements can only measure one-eighth of an second.
In contrast, the new movement CH 29-535 PS 1/10 sounds at a frequency of your five Hz (36, 000 semi-oscillations per hour, 10 beats each second), so it can gauge a tenth of a secondly. It was the debut of the Patek Philippe chronograph, it required more power.
However , just capturing the seconds hand along with a frequency of 5 Hertz is not enough to display some sort of tenth of a second using the required accuracy. The watch dial of the watch does not present enough space for the scale, that is very compact, with a 10th of a second scale.
Therefore , the makers decided to provide the CH 29-535 PS 1/10 movement together with two separate timing elements: one for the seconds side and the instantaneous 30-minute countertop, and another dedicated to computing and displaying tenths of your second the pause.
Patented concentric screen With this decision, Patek Philippe opted for good possibility of being read easily. In keeping with the manufacturer's customer-centric creation philosophy, the chronograph's tenths of seconds, moments and minutes are sure to be ideally organized, quick and reliably readable.
So engineers considered a patented system in which concentrically displays the scored seconds and fractions connected with seconds. The watch is equipped with a pair of swept-frequency chronograph hands, every single driven by an independent procedure. The hand, which makes 1 revolution per minute, traditionally demonstrates the number of seconds stopped.
The other hand (painted red in the new Ref. 5470P-001) makes one wave every 12 seconds, my spouse and i. e. five times faster when compared to a normal chronograph hand, as well as sweeps through 12 groups subdivided into tenths.
This way, the user could instantly read the elapsed just a few seconds guided by the pearl paintball guns, and then read the elapsed tenths of a second from the very last red marker on the outside railway track scale. Often the short-time measured minutes tend to be indicated by an fast 30-minute counter on the subdial at 3 o'clock.
Given such convenience, the core of the branded system is a veritable prize trove of ingenious alternatives in motion, but silent and invisible. As usual, Patek Philippe increased the bar and specified how the new movement should satisfy ambitious demands in every esteem.
Not only need to a watch be able to measure and also display tenths of a 2nd, it should also maintain this precision during the 30-minute manage of the chronograph.
Furthermore, the CH 29-535 PS 1/10 movement would have to be as compact as possible, when preserving the diameter in the base movement (29. some mm) and allowing simply a slight increase in height (from 5. 35 mm to six. 96 mm) - in spite of the two chronograph mechanisms, a complete of 396 parts. An authentic achievement of miniaturization, the brand new movement is even quicker than the split-second movement CHR 29-535 PS (7. one particular mm).
Electricity control and high precision The Patek Philippe Fantastic Complication thus built is just as complex as a tourbillon, small repeater or split-seconds timepiece. The new calibre CH 29-535 PS 1/10 requires much more energy for a frequency associated with 5 Hz and for incorporating the seconds chronograph having a high-speed hand.
To control and limit this specific energy consumption, engineers was required to intervene in all the nooks and crannies regarding motion. Of course , the word " precision" dominates the entire progress the movement.
The challenge begins with a one mainspring that powers your entire movement. Patek Philippe offers redesigned this component along with increased its efficiency to take care of the spring's amplitude as far as possible and ensure optimized rate stableness.
To increase typically the available energy and raise the power reserve, the diameter on the barrel arbor was diminished and the number of mainspring shelves increased. The patented step reduces the tension of the falling strap during winding, reducing the risk of damage due to enhanced forces.
High tech adjustment mechanism To cope with three challenges - productivity, reliability and rate precision - Patek Philippe made a decision to use the Oscillomax® ensemble put together by the " Patek Philippe Advanced Research" department.
Launched in 2011, this kind of high-tech adjustment mechanism provides 17 patents and a few innovative components that depend upon all the advantages of Silinvar® engineering - it is based on a new silicon derivative with incredible physical and mechanical components (weight Light, strong in addition to durable), anti-magnetic, etc . ).
The device runs on the Spiromax® balance spring using a patented terminal curve as well as internal bosses (patented within 2017, Ref. 5650), the Pulsomax® escapement consisting of any lever and escape tire, and a Gyromax® hairspring Generally modified geometry Silinvar® harmony, inlaid with gold.
This is the first time since introduction of the Patek Philippe Advanced Research Perpetual Date. 5550P (2011), Patek Philippe added the Oscillomax® collection to its current series.
But that decision was decisive for your outstanding performance of the fresh Calibre CH 29-535 BY THE WAY 1/10 movement. Although the activity consumes significantly more energy, that still achieves a high pace accuracy of -3/+2 secs per day, as specified through the Patek Philippe Seal.
Smooth and properly synchronized hand movements Another major challenge which arose during the development of often the CH 29-535 PS 1/10 movement was the display quality, specially the tenth of a next. The two chronograph displays needs to be perfectly synchronized. Despite the excessive rotational speed, the 10th of a second hand must transfer fluidly without jumping or maybe vibrating. Here, too, the actual manufacturer's engineers develop and also implement innovative solutions.
The mechanism that will displays the tenth of any second receives energy in the fourth wheel of the bottom part movement through the drive controls. Patek Philippe designed the particular drive wheel in a new two-part arrangement: the upper steering wheel with flexible spokes along with the lower wheel with rigorous spokes.
Due to this patented anti-backlash basic principle that is both compact along with energy efficient, the teeth of the generate wheel exert a springtime force on the clutch tyre, eliminating the risk of hand oscillations.
When the time counter is started, the 10th of a second drive tire (one revolution per minute) meshes with a tenth of an second pinion, which makes one particular revolution in 12 mere seconds (five times faster).
To achieve this " acceleration", Patek Philippe offers a 1/1-second pinion with tiny your teeth: 136 teeth, the pinion has a diameter of 1. 469 mm and a tooth top of 30 microns. The actual backlash is suppressed from the preload of the clutch controls on the pinion. A number of specific measures maximize the reliability of the display.
Proven shock absorbers Yet another essential measure required for some sort of user-centric solution has to do with shocks. The new calibre CH 29-535 PS 1/10 has to handle all the demands and challenges that can be faced in every day use.
To this particular end, Patek Philippe is promoting two patented mechanisms. One too is the shock absorber problem, which holds the clutch system rocker throughout the short rank.
The second employs the " unbalance" (center of gravity, not to always be confused with the center of rotation) with the tenths of a second stop-watch mechanism component. In the event of a direct impact, the acceleration values from the impacted components are rewarded instead of accumulated. The result is that components remain in the desired place, eliminating any impact on the conventional functioning of the watch.
single button wathe The chronograph carries a pusher at the 2 o'clock position that continuously completes start, stop and reset to zero commands. This single-button system is reminiscent of classic chronograph watches and will delight technical see lovers.
Beyond the patented CH 29-535 PLAYSTATION 1/10 movement, the new observe embodies the seamless combined tradition and innovation in which forms the core involving Patek Philippe's philosophy.
A sapphire very caseback (interchangeable with the sturdy platinum caseback supplied with typically the watch) allows the CH 29-535 PS 1/10 mobility with its filigree components in addition to elaborate finishes (bridges using chamfered and polished edges) plate, Geneva stripes, and so on ). The gold-plated épigraphe " Oscillomax 5 Hz" and " GyromaxSi" personalized on the bridges refer to often the innovative movement components.
A movement fully focused on performance and brief measurements needs to be well shielded, so Patek Philippe has generated an unrivaled sporty appearance. To reflect this attentiveness of technological prowess, suppliers chose platinum, the most silver and the most difficult to unit.
The circular case and the hand-wound Ref. 5370 split-seconds chronograph were being launched in 2015. Being a special feature, its curvy bezel forms a perfect move with the slightly domed sky-blue crystal.
The sides of the case are usually slightly recessed and satin-finished, and the lugs are softly curved and feature decorative cabochons at the ends of the early spring bars. Like all Patek Philippe models in us platinum, the Ref. 5470P-001 incorporates a flawless brilliant-cut diamond amongst the lugs at 6 o'clock.
The classy blue dial complements the actual shimmering reflections of the american platinum eagle case, while providing the ideal contrast for the legibility in the individual displays.
The chronograph seconds are generally indicated by sandblasted as well as rhodium-plated steel hands, and also the minute scale is adorned with small gold pearl jewelry. Slim hands in Silinvar® show tenths of a subsequent.
Because it is and so lightweight, this high-tech stuff saves energy and has the particular rigidity needed to withstand typically the shocks that occur every time a chronograph is suddenly ended.
Thanks to the latest patented process for beautifying the Silinvar® hands (in this case, red lacquer), another patent for the connection connected with pipes to the Silinvar® hands and fingers by brazing, Patek Philippe has succeeded for the first time with this A promising material for external features of watches.
The red color of the fingers also echoes the white markings on the railway track size for reading tenths of the second. As long as the timepiece is not running, the red-colored and grey chronograph hands usually are superimposed on each other look at like a hand. After a quick measurement using the pusher in 2 o'clock, it shoots a captivating ballet from two different rotational gears.
The quick 30-minute counter at three and the small seconds with 9 o’clock feature obvious rail graduations to improve often the legibility of the corresponding data.
The new 5470P-001 comes with a navy blue calfskin band with an embossed fabric style and red decorative seams that perfectly coordinate with all the dial color. The gold folding clasp ensures coziness safety on the wrist.
