Do You Consider $17,000 for an Apple Watch Chump Change,Then Consider This...

Watchmaker Patek Philippe, to commemorate its 175th anniversary, has available new limited edition "175th Anniversary" watches. They include a limited edition of seven "mega watch" pieces called the Patek Philippe 5175 Grandmaster Chime.

The watch first debuted in October 2014 and is priced at $2.6 million.

According to the company, the watch is the most complicated wristwatch it has ever made.

Moreover, the Grandmaster Chime is the first double-face wristwatch presented by Patek Philippe that can be worn with either dial facing up: the one that focuses on the time and the sonnerie, the other dedicated to the full instantaneous perpetual calendar. The information for which a watch is most frequently consulted – the current time and the date – is displayed on both dials.

The watch also has two patented global debuts in the domain of chiming watches: an acoustic alarm that strikes the alarm time and a date repeater that sounds the date on demand.
