The term complication is widely used in watchmaking circles. After design and movement, what most people look for in a watch are complications. Complications include perpetual calendar, moon phases, dual time zones, and more, which really add value to the watch. Major luxury watch brands, such as Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe, have dedicated collections of complicated watches. As we all know, Patek Philippe really shines in the mechanical mastery of complex functions.
In this regard, Patek Philippe has two watch series of complicated cheap swiss watches, "Complicated Function" and "Grand Complication".
These two series may look very similar, but they are unique and different from each other. First, it's best to understand what the term "complication" really means in horology.
In horology, any function in a watch that does more than tell the time is called a complication.
Let us now discuss the difference between these two series and what makes them unique.
How are the two series different?
Well, as the names suggest, one series is named "Complications" and the other is named "Grand Complications", but it's not that simple. The watches offered under the "complications" series name include functions such as dual time, chronograph, annual calendar, world timer and power reserve indicator.
The “Grand Complications” collection offers watches that are more complex than the simple Patek Philippe complication. They have an extremely complex combination of functions, from perpetual calendar and perpetual calendar chronograph to celestial and minute repeater. If you're looking for some of the best and most complicated mechanical watches available, look no further than the Grand Complications collection.replica Richard Mille RM 17-02
One of the most famous watches in the complication line is the World Time, which simultaneously indicates 24 time zones. These watches date back to the 1930s and are still produced today. These flawless and exquisite timepieces are highly collectible among Patek Philippe watch collectors. World time watches are great for frequent travelers as they can tell the time in 24 time zones.
Another well-known watch series in the complication series is the Patek Philippe Annual Calendar watch. This is a relatively new complication, as it was developed in 1996. A watch equipped with this complication can indicate the correct date throughout the year, requiring only one manual adjustment on March 1st of each year. Since its initial release, the Patek Philippe Annual Calendar has gone through several generations, with both men's and women's versions.best replica tourbillon watches
Another famous Patek Philippe watch complication is the Patek Philippe Calatrava Travel Time watch. This is Patek Philippe's version of the dual time watch. This complication can be found on different Patek Philippe watch models, such as the Calatrava. The dial of the Travel Time watch has two hour hands. One hand indicates the local time and the other hand indicates the time in the second time zone. A second time zone can be very useful if one is traveling. The second time zone can be easily activated by simply pressing two buttons located on the case. The second time zone jumps backwards or forwards in one-hour increments. You can also hide the second time zone hour hand behind the traditional hour hand, just put the local time and the second time in the same position.
One of the most famous models in the collection is the Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph in platinum. The perpetual calendar displays a set of calendar indications on the dial, such as day of the week, date, month, leap year and moon phases, until the year 2100 without any type of manual adjustment. - Patek Philippe's Perpetual Calendar is known to be one of the finest and most coveted perpetual calendars in the high-end luxury watch market.
There is also the Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph that combines these two complications with a perpetual calendar with retrograde date.
The Patek Philippe Grand Complications Sky Moon Celestial is one of, if not the most extraordinary mechanical watches ever made. This poetic watch shows the exact same configuration of the northern hemisphere night sky with moving stars and moon phases.
