If you're not yet the ultra-watch aficionado you may find yourself bewildered with some words like "complications" used to describe watches (99 problems but you don't need your watch to be one right?? 😉). The Patek Philippe website describes it like this - "A 'complication' is any additional horological function to the display of hours, minutes and seconds. "Complicated" watches are further assigned to one of two categories:
. 〰 1) Complications : watches with one or several additional hands that have a timing function such as Annual Calendar, 📆 dual time zones,🕙🕤 multiple time zones (World Time), 🌏power reserve indication, 10-day power reserve, indication of the state of wind of the movement.
. 〰 2) Grand complications : watches with astronomical indications such as perpetual calendar (with moon phases), 🌕🌗🌓🌒 perpetual calendar with fly-back retrograde date, astronomical calendar, 💫small and grand strikes, minute repeater, chronographs and split-seconds chronographs, self-winding Annual Calendar Chronograph, tourbillon chronometer with 10-day power reserve, triple and grand complications, sidereal time, running equation of time, sky chart.
The watch pictured here is a #patekphilippe "complication" 5205R-010 model in rose gold and retails for upwards of $45,000.
