Additional Information
Patek Philippe invented the pairing of the chronograph and perpetual calendar in a wristwatch seventy years ago. Their various perpetual calendar chronograph models over the years have not only proven legendary, they are also the best looking such watches ever designed and produced by any manufacturer. From the reference 1518 to the 2499 to the 3970 to the 5970 and now the 5270. These watches are exemplary and also a collector’s dream watch.

This reference 5270 is Patek’s current and newest perpetual chronograph. In a word, it’s breathtaking. This watch has the distinction of utilizing Patek’s first manufacture perpetual calendar chronograph caliber. This new caliber contains six patent pending innovations. The 5270 is being introduced in 2011 to mark the 70th anniversary of Patek’s esteemed perpetual calendar chronograph tradition.

Case is solid 18k white gold with contoured lugs, sapphire crystals front and display back, large white gold winding crown and rectangular white gold chronograph pushers. Diameter is 41mm.

Dial is extremely balanced, legible and attractive. The feuille hands and applied hour markers and blackened. Calendar day and month are display in the apertures below the double marker at 12 o’clock. Three o’clock subdial displays chronograph 30 minute totalizer. Six o’clock subdial shows date and moonphase. Nine o’clock subdial is for constant seconds. The round aperture between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock shows years 1-4 in the leap year cycle. Aperture between 7 o’clock and 8 o’clock displays an AM/PM indicator.

Movement is the Patek Philippe manual winding Caliber CH 29-535 PS Q with column wheel construction. The six patents pending which I mentioned are for highly technical innovations. For example, the driving, clutch and chronograph wheels feature a new pattern and shape to their teeth to optimize performance. It took Patek two years to perfect the calendar module in the Caliber CH 29-535 PS Q which connects with the 182 part chronograph assembly. This elite manufacture caliber is optimized for performance, endurance and aesthetic superiority.

I love learning about the engineering, care and craft that goes into these new Patek watches. It reaffirms Patek’s absolute commitment to being the best watch brand, period.

Strap is black crocodile with 18k Patek deployment clasp.

Watch is new with box and papers.
