Patek Ref. 5470P-001 1/10th Second Monopusher Chronograph

At first look, this appears like a fully traditional platinum two-register chronograph (with a small diamond in between the lugs at six o’clock, like all platinum Patek watches). The purple middle hand, which at first look is the chronograph seconds hand, appears just a little uncommon, particularly towards the deep blue dial, however in any other case, this might simply as simply be a Patek chronograph from 1952 as from 2022. On nearer inspection, nonetheless, you discover that there are literally two chronograph middle fingers, and that the dial reads “1/10 second” in small, diffident letters – after which that the outer elapsed seconds scale is definitely two scales, one graduated for elapsed seconds (and minutes, when learn off from the minute hand) and an outer one, with 12 purple indexes, meant to permit you to learn off 1/10 of a second increments from the purple middle chronograph hand. The purple chrono hand rotates as soon as across the dial as soon as each 12 seconds.
