Patek Phillipe is very well known for his classy elegance and the ability to throw modern charm onto vintage timepieces. The novelty of Patek Phillipe has six incredible patented innovations, and for first time comes in platinum. One of the greatest classics with reference 5270 perpetual chronograph calendar is fully refreshed with new materials and new movement technology, which is always appreciated when it comes to manual wound mechanical winding.
I must say the first look at Patek Phillipe is astonishing. Its golden opaline dial shows lots of time functions. Starting with the little sub-dial located at 6 o’clock showing moon phase and year, and the other two sub-dials counting seconds and 30 minutes. This watch looks reach enough to catch everyone’s eye. What makes it even more beautiful and gives real vintage impression is the double display of day and month located under 12 o’clock. The thaximetric scale above gives the possibility to measure speed up to 600 km and the date is hand wound.
The middle case is made of platinum including the wounding crown and the pushers. Interchangeable case back made of Sapphire-crystal allows the whole movement to be seen including some of the jewels placed to help the balance. This time the diameter of the case is 41mm and the thickness is 12.4 mm.
Manually hand wound mechanical movement with caliber CH-29-535 PSQ Vibrates 28 800 (4Hz) per hour providing power reserve of 55 to 65 hours. The movement skeleton is composed of 456 pieces and has 33 jewels build in to help balance. While building this calibre Patek Pillipe watchmakers made six improvements on the classical movement. All in order to raise the bar.
