Patek Philippe, 5470P_001_DET

The 5470P 1/10th Second Monopusher Chronograph is Patek Philippe’s first wristwatch capable of measuring and displaying 1/10th of a second.

Patek Philippe captivated the horological world with the Ref.5470P 1/10th Second Monopusher Chronograph, featuring a high-performance manual-winding movement and many new innovations.

The 5470P-001 can measure and display up to 1/10 of a second, while maintaining accuracy throughout operation.

To be able to conquer this mechanical challenge, the manufacturer relies on the CH 29-535 PS movement, launched in 2009 with 6 patents and constantly improved to this day. The frequency increases from 4 to 5 Hz (36,000 oscillations per hour or 10 steps per second) and the movement is equipped with its own chronograph mechanism, allowing for accurate measurements of 1/10 of a second.

Ensuring simple and quick time reading, the movement developers have devised a concentric system (patented) with two central hands, each controlled by the movement’s own mechanism .

The rhodium steel second hand allows the seconds to be read in the traditional way. The 1/10 second hand rotates around the dial for 12 seconds, divided into 12 sectors, each sector consists of ten parts corresponding to tenths of a second.

The tenth-second hand is coated in red, made from Silinvar® material to reduce the inertia of the hand during operation. The Silinvar® needle coating process alone has two patents.

To meet the triple goals of efficiency, reliability and precision, the manufacturer integrated the high-tech Oscillomax® adjustment complex – introduced in 2011, with 17 patents – by the Patek engineering team. Philippe. They are also behind many of the innovations featured in the “Advanced Research” series.

Seven additional patented innovations have been developed for the new 29-535 PS 1/10 movement, which contribute to reducing energy consumption, protecting the movement from shocks and minimizing the risk of damage. break in case of carelessness.

The Grand Complication watch has a platinum Calavatra case with satin-brushed side panels. The design exudes a healthy, dynamic spirit with highlights from many details such as: the red tone of the tenth second hand, the navy blue calfskin strap with embossed fabric patterns and contrasting red stitching. .
