The largest and oldest of its kind ever made, this remarkable and rare 22-module time tower was created by Patek Philippe of Geneva. Part of the highly regarded and technologically advanced Patek Philippe Electronic Clock System, this time tower was specially crafted for the Parliament Building in Bern/Switzerland. With this module-style time tower system, Parliament could guarantee complete time synchronization in multiple locations, offering both flexibility and accuracy during everyday operations. The unique components boast 65 individual analog dials that each measure hours, minutes, and seconds. Renowned clockmakers Patek Philippe established their electronic time keeping division in 1946 with the primary goal of developing the most accurate timekeeping clocks and watches on the market. It was during the 1970s that the Swiss company perfected this remarkable technology, and their master clock systems were largely considered the most cutting edge and precise systems on the market. These incredible master clock systems were crafted on a commissioned basis for only the most important clients, meaning no two systems were ever created exactly alike. An array of businesses and services, including airports, hospitals, radio stations, jewelry and office buildings, employed these timing systems to ensure that the exact time was uniformly displayed throughout a building or complex. Today, the few unique systems created by the company are incredibly rare limited editions and seldom appear on the market.
