WatchPro Show Stopper Watches of the Year Winner: Philippe Grandmaster Chime for Only Watch


This unique edition of the Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime in steel is the literal embodiment of the term ‘show-stopper’.

Created exclusively for the 2019 edition of Only Watch, a mind-boggling performance saw it become the most expensive watch ever sold at auction, by a substantial margin.


Fetching $31 million – all in the name of charity – one of the most talked about models of 2019 has now become one of the most important watches of the decade.

Housing 20 complications, including a Grande Sonnerie, Petite Sonnerie, minute repeater and perpetual calendar, and reportedly taking over 100,000 man hours to develop this is the most complicated wristwatch ever produced by the Geneva watchmaker.

Add in an especially desirable salmon dial complete with the words “The Only One” and it’s clear this timepiece is in a league of its own.

And is likely to remain that way for years to come.
