This women’s two-second chronograph with stern-wheel control uses a CHR 27-525 PS manual winding movement with a diameter of 27.3 mm and a thickness of 5.25 mm. This allows the watch to perch on a woman’s wrist with a slim body with a diameter of 33.2mm and a thickness of 8.6mm.
The CHR 27-525 PS movement is the world’s thinnest two-second chronograph hand controlled by a star wheel. Patek Philippe spares no effort to reduce the size of the movement while ensuring that its extraordinary travel time accuracy and reliable quality are not affected. The new toothed structure of the timing gear improves power transmission efficiency and reduces friction and losses. The friction drive of the minute counter not only reduces the thickness of the movement, but also balances the torque difference between the coupled and uncoupled timing devices, thereby ensuring that the amplitude of the balance wheel remains stable in any operating mode. The teeth of the manual winding device adopt a new shape, and the smooth response of the watch can be clearly felt through the fingertips when winding. This feeling is known to insiders as ‘velout & eacute; Patek’. ;. This sense of pleasure fits perfectly with its feminine appearance.
