It was six years ago that the Manufacture undertook a new mechanical challenge: combining a Travel Time function with a newly developed alarm movement. Now, in 2019, Patek Philippe asserts its leadership in innovation with the introduction of a new grand complication, the Alarm Travel Time pilot-style timepiece. #PatekTime #AlarmTravelTime

It was in 1997 that Patek Philippe introduced the exclusive Travel Time travel time function to its collection. With its ingenious dual time-zone system designed for world travelers, it became the base for a lineage of successful creations, the latest of which is the Alarm Travel Time, Ref. 5520P. #PatekTime #AlarmTravelTime #5520P

The 24-hour alarm function of Ref. 5520P is synchronized with local time and the alarm mechanism that features a classic gong is an exceptional display of complexity. When the alarm is triggered,the hammer strikes the gong for up to 40 seconds with a frequency of 2.5 Hz (2.5 strikes per second). #PatekTime #AlarmTravelTime #5520P

The 42.2 mm case of the Ref. 5520P is formed in platinum, the most precious of metals, and yet also the most difficult to shape. Like all Patek Philippe platinum watches, the Alarm Travel Time is set with a diamond in the case flank at 6 o'clock. #PatekTime #AlarmTravelTime #5520P

Upholding its legacy of innovation, the new Ref. 5520P Alarm Travel Time is the first chiming Patek Philippe timepiece with a water-resistant case to 30 meters. A significant asset for voyagers traveling to tropical climates, the timepiece remains water-resistant, even when the pushers are unlocked. #PatekTime #AlarmTravelTime #5520P
