This highly sophisticated and exceptionally rare prototype model DCP is part of the Electronic Master Clock System by Patek Philippe of Geneva. Originally made for Dutch National Railways, the unique unit features a master clock designed to be synchronized with a central observatory in Geneva. The integrated time base is set to display the month, date, and day of the week, along with hours, minutes, seconds and 1/10th seconds on an electronic dial. One of the first of its kind to ever exist, this phenomenal exhibition timepiece is almost certainly the only known working example of its type in the world today.

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, hospital, 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.
