Footnotes

  • 百達翡麗,「超級複雜功能時計系列」5078P型號,罕有鉑金三問自動腕錶,配琺瑯錶盤,2009年。附電動錶盒、證書、後備錶蓋及說明書。

    The Patek Philippe Ref. 5078 was first produced in 2005 as the larger iteration of the Ref. 3979 which was produced from 1989 until 1998. Patek Philippe minute repeaters are arguably the most sought-after complication by this maker, as each repeater undergoes the most rigorous testing and sound mapping analysis in a sound-proof chamber before final presentation to Thierry Stern, President of Patek Philippe, whose final approval must be obtained before the watch leaves the workshop.

    The present example of the Ref. 5078P is no exception. Within the 38mm platinum case beats the automatic calibre R 27 PS with a minute repeater chiming on two gongs - despite the Ref. 5078's complexity, the movement is only 5.05mm thick. The minute repeater is activated on-demand through a discreetly positioned slide in the case. Also subtle and sophisticated, the white enamel dial with black Roman numerals offers its wearer the understated-style for which Patek Philippe is world-renowned.

    百達翡麗5078P

    百達翡麗5078型號於2005年面世,為1989至1998年間生產的3979型號的較大款變奏。百達翡麗三問組件可謂該廠最受歡迎的複雜功能,每枚皆於隔音室通過嚴格之測試及Sound Mapping Analysis ,方經由百達翡麗總裁Thierry Stern最終審核出廠。

    此枚5078P型號亦不例外,38毫米直徑的鉑金表殻中,calibre R 27 PS自動機芯包含三問組件及兩枚音簧,仍僅厚5.05毫米。三問功能以隱藏式推桿啟動,白珐瑯錶面配黑色羅馬數字,世故而含蓄,體現百達翡麗的招牌低調風格。
