The Patek Philippe 6301P Grande Sonnerie Replica is a masterpiece of exquisite design, with a large and small chiming mechanism, as well as a minute repeater and a new patented jumping seconds hand. With a platinum case designed in wearable size, the 6301P is a special timepiece with a rare complication that is very subtle.
This new manual-winding Calibre GS 36-750 PS IRM is very complicated, as it consists of 703 parts, despite the fact that the movement itself is only 37mm wide and 7.5mm thick. With three patents and the use of silicon components, this is a movement that is very modern in construction and design.
Although this movement is relatively compact, it does require a lot of power to perform all these highly complex functions. Cheap Patek Philippe Replica solution consists of two twin barrels connected in series, one dedicated to the running train and the other to the striking mechanism. Running at 25,200 vph, the movement provides a 72-hour power reserve for the watch and a 24-hour power reserve for the percussion mechanism. Thus, when fully wound, the 6301P Grand Sonnerie will strike the full hour and quarter hour throughout the day for 24 hours.
Since the 6301P is a carillon, it has three gongs, each tuned to low, mid or high notes, which together produce a beautiful percussion sound. The hour strikes on the lowest-pitched gong, and the quarter hour strikes in the order of high, low and medium.
At the first quarter of an hour (15 minutes), the sequence plays once; at the second quarter of an hour (30 minutes), the sequence plays twice; and at the third quarter of an hour (45 minutes), the sequence plays three times. Furthermore, before each quarter-hour sequence, the Patek Philippe Replica Watch will chime the number of hours elapsed to date, and after each quarter-hour sequence, it will chime the number of elapsed quarter-hours.
Use the case’s slide switch at 6 o’clock to activate the petite, self-sounding Strikework mode, which only sounds on the hour. The same slide switch can also be used to activate silent mode, in which the striking function is turned off, although the minute repeater can be easily activated by pressing the inset pusher at 3 o’clock in the crown.
In the “Why not?” movement of the best timepieces, 100% Quality Patek Philippe Replica also introduced a new instant jumping or jumpless seconds hand. With the third patented system used here, the mechanism uses wheels and a release lever to unlock the gear train every second, which is a boon given the energy consumption. I’m sure the pleasure of seeing the second hand jump to 60 immediately with the chiming is not easy to tire of.
Measuring 44.8mm wide and 12mm thick, this is a very slim piece that offers stealth with a platinum case. Apart from the pusher on the crown, the sliding switch at 6 o’clock, and the diamond-set diamonds on all the platinum Patek Philippe, there’s not a lot of frivolous embellishment here.
In a very quirky and unexpected move, Best Patek Philippe Replica chose to paint the hands with luminous light, which is ironic since it developed a striking mechanism to show the time in the dark. Given the discreet and reasonable size of this watch, the owner might actually wear it and wonder when it gets dark. So, I say, Patek Philippe is not bad.
