One of the successful outcomes of the Patek Philippe Advanced Research project involved a significant reduction of the negative impact of the center – of – mass imbalance on the isochronism of the balance spring itself. A glance at the Spiromax ® balance spring made of Silinvar ® shows that the outer boss is now paired with an inner boss. The outer boss, also referred to as the Patek Philippe terminal curve, improves the isochronism of the balance in all positions by assuring the adequately concentric expansion and contraction of the balance spring. It compensates the disruption of isochronism caused by the escapement and the rotation of the balance regardless of the amplitude. Conversely, the inner boss offsets positional changes of the center of gravity to assure the highest possible rate accuracy in vertical orientations. For the owner, this means that the watch will not run slower or faster regardless of its orientation. The production of hairsprings with the DRIE process guarantees a perfect reproduced geometry, including the positional changes of its center of gravity. Because silicon cannot be deformed, its properties are not affected even when the watch is worn daily. The precisely defined geometry of the inner boss causes a controllable position change of the center of gravity while the spring contracts and expands. This significantly reduces or even eliminates the center – of – mass imbalance of the hairspring during each semi – oscillation. The result is a degree of rate accuracy that exceeds nearly all standards for mechanical watches regardless of their orientation.
Rate precision from Patek Philippe’s perspective
The Patek Philippe Seal imposes very stringent requirements on all of the manufacture’s mechanical watches. The mean rate of movements with a diameter of more than 20 mm must range within – 3 to +2 seconds per day. For Patek Philippe tourbillon timepieces, the tolerance is a strict 3 seconds per 24 hours. Hundreds of repetitive measurements performed by Patek Philippe’s certification laboratories have shown that a mechanical Patek Philippe movement with a Spiromax ® balance spring that has both an outer and an inner boss can be adjusted to a mean rate of – 1 to +2 seconds per 24 hours, which matches the rate accuracy of a Patek Philippe movement with a tourbillon.
Trailblazing technologies for a promising future
The new Spiromax ® balance spring with an inner and outer boss reconfirms the extraordinary benefits of Silinvar ® , the silicon derivative that Patek Philippe launched in 2005 as a world debut. Machining it with the DRIE process allows the geometry of the hairspring to be al tered at any location to systematically influence its oscillation behavior and thus its isochronism. This is an ambitious goal because a precise and dependable rate is an important prerequisite for assuring the successful future of the proud tradition of mechanical timekeeping. For this reason, Patek Philippe’s objective is to gradually integrate the balance spring with this geometry in its current production schedule. But Patek Philippe Advanced Research also extends to other fields as illustrated by the n ext innovation within the framework of this presentation.
Patek Philippe is a watch manufacturer from Switzerland. It was launched in 1851 and immediately focused on luxury watches. Patek Philippe watches are entirely created in-house, including the movements, among them some of the world’s outstanding calibers. Novelties presented in Patek Philippe watches are, among others, split-seconds hand, perpetual calendar, minute repeater and chronograph.Patek produces self-winding automatic movements and manual calibers. Early in 21st century Patek introduced the silicon escapement wheel. The vintage Patek Philippe watch market and the demand for used Patek watches is high which is why the resale value of a vintage Patek watch tends to be better than the average of other watch brands.

Patek Philippe collectors aren’t like other watch collectors. They aren’t flashy; they don’t have to be. That’s because Patek Philippe’s understated elegance bespeaks confidence. Simply put, Patek owners know that they have the very best in craftsmanship, heritage and design sitting on their wrists — and once you’ve owned a Patek Philippe, nothing else will do.It’s said that fewer than 1 million Patek Philippe watches have been made since 1839. That’s fewer than some very high-end Swiss manufacturers produce in a year. Patek production is so detailed that it takes nine months to make its most basic watches, and more than two years to produce some of the more complicated timepieces. Meanwhile, demand is growing around the world. Some Patek Philippe watches are so sought-after that buyers must submit to an application process to demonstrate that they are sufficiently high-calibre collectors.
It is interesting to note that the simple mention of the brand Patek Philippe always seems to create a lasting impact on most people. This brand of luxury timepieces has long been resting at the top of the Swiss watches list, undisturbed by the stiff competition that thrives in the country of dedicated manufacturers. Through the years, Patek Philippe watches have earned the adulation of the high society, including the royalties from different parts of the world.
The name of the company, which was coined from the owners Antoni Patek and Adrien Philippe, has built a strong reputation in the industry of watchmaking. Since the brand was founded in 1868, Patek Philippe has become one of the frontrunners in the development of the trade. It helped in the innovation of the movements and designs for pocketwatches and wristwatches.
In general, Patek Philippe replica watches may include two or more features such as the perpetual calendar, moonphase display, split-second hands, minute repeaters and chronograph. One of the most complicated Patek Philippe watches is the 24-function pocketwatch that was sold at an auction for a whopping US$11 million. Aside from the technologies applied to the watches, the elegance of the metals and precious stones also add to the defining qualities of the brand.
The milestones in the production of Patek Philippe copie watches are greatly impressive. From the royalty to the popes, the clientele of Patek Philippe remains unparalleled. The famous Queen Victoria of England had received a number of exclusive watches from the company since 1851. Soon, the brand Patek Philippe has flourished throughout the kingdoms in Europe, making it the official supplier to some political figures and even the popes.The company currently holds the world record having the most expensive pocketwatch and wristwatch ever sold at the auctions. With the kind of people that it serves and the price that it demands from the buyers, it is not surprising that Patek Philippe has become an authority in Swiss luxury watches.
Most of the men’s watches made by Patek Philippe are devised with more complications as compared to those timepieces designed for women. Perhaps the most popular line of watches under the brand is the Calatavra collection. Its trademark design is the round-shaped case with hobnail bezel. However, the additional features as well as the movements of the watches still vary from one to another; they can be automatic, manually wounded or quartz.
