Product Description

With PATEK PHILIPPE Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch with enamel dial and independent dead second hand in 1868 and its subsequent sale on 20 June 1876.

Patek Philippe's independent dead centre seconds watches are exceedingly rare, only around 60 examples of this predecessor of the chronograph were ever made, both with and without subsidiary seconds, with subsidiary seconds made 12 pcs only.

The independent dead seconds mechanism requires two going trains, one for the movement and one for the sweep centre seconds hand, allowing it to be stopped without stopping the main train in order not to interfere with the accuracy of timekeeping. The invention of this mechanism is attributed to Moise Pouzait, Geneva 1776.

Adrien Philippe's independent dead seconds mechanism ( Illustrated and described in Patek Philippe by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, p. 53) varies completely from Pouzait's design. Moving the seconds train over the center bridge created more space, thus allowing a larger balance resulting in better timekeeping.
