This Patek Philippe Pagoda 5500P has a manual wind caliber 215 movement that's rhodium plated with fausses côtes embellishment and it is stamped with the seal of Geneva. It's constructed with 18 jewels, a straight-line lever escapement, and the patented Patek free-sprung Gyromax balance that's adjusted to cold, heat, isochronism, and 5 positions.

This Patek Philippe Pagoda 5500P is one of only 150 examples made in platinum in 1997 to commemorate Patek Philippe's new watchmaking center in Geneva. The Patek Pagoda was inspired by the case design of the famous 1940's Patek Eiffel Tower Ref #2441. The tools and dies used for the production of the Patek Pagoda were destroyed at the completion of the manufacture, guaranteeing there would be no more produced. The case back is inscribed "COMMEMORATION 1997 PAGODA". It includes the sterling silver medallion and the "Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres."
