The Patek Philippe Grande Complication Perpetual Calendar Chronograph is an iconic piece.
An unrelenting commitment to superlative watchmaking is the hallmark of this family owned company, a veritable horological citadel known and admired across the world as Patek Philippe. Since 1839, creating an uncompromising standard by which other institutions are measured but few have equaled. A Patek Philippe watch is not merely an instrument for the telling of time. It is a quiet reflection of the wearer’s values. Each Patek Philippe watch is made to become a legend – telling a compelling tale about each person’s life & his or her emotions… This emotion is not just at the heart of each and every watch – it is at the very heart of the company. Owning a Patek Philippe watch reveals something very special and unique about you…
These watches are exemplary and also a collector's dream watch.
This Grande Complication is one of Patek's rarest perpetual chronograph’s. In a word, it's extraordinary. This watch has the distinction of utilizing Patek's first manufacture perpetual calendar chronograph caliber.
Patek Philippe invented the pairing of the chronograph and perpetual calendar in a wristwatch over 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 watch has the distinction of utilizing Patek's first manufacture perpetual calendar chronograph caliber. This new caliber contains six patent pending innovations. The 5270 was introduced to mark the 70th anniversary of Patek's esteemed perpetual calendar chronograph tradition.
With a diameter of 41 mm and a height of 12.4 mm is the 5270P very well proportioned. Its elaborately crafted case, with perhaps the most beautiful lugs available on a watch in current production, matches perfectly with the imposing dial. The platinum adds a nice bit of heft to it, while the contrast brings out the salmon dial even more. While it contains a lot of information, it is presented in such a way that all functions can be easily read.
The "Oplain Dore" Golden 'Salmon' Dial with Blackened Gold Applied Arabic Numerals is extremely balanced, legible and attractive. The feuille hands and applied hour markers are white gold. 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 hand-sewn crocodile with Platinum Patek deployment clasp.
ONE OF THE RAREST!!!!
No doubt - One of the most sought after Patek Philippe watches ever released.
The unparalleled renown and prestige that Patek Philippe has acquired amongst connoisseurs is not due solely to the perfection of the watches and the resources of knowledge and skill contained in the workshops. This undisputed supremacy also stems from the consistency with which the company has applied its philosophy of excellence ever since it was founded in 1839.
Seventy years ago, in 1941, Patek Philippe added chronographs with perpetual calendars to its range of regularly produced timepieces. Since then, they have ranked among the manufacture’s most popular Grand Complication wristwatches. They unite two degrees of difficulty that require many manual steps, mastered to the required degree of perfection only by the most experienced specialists. This is one of the main reasons why complicated Patek Philippe watches are available only in limited quantities. This will also apply to the new Patek Philippe Ref. 5270, which embodies all the features and qualities a connoisseur would expect from a future cult object.
The face of the Patek Philippe Ref. 5270P follows one of the most venerable traditions of this type of watch: The day and the month in apertures at 12 o’clock, an analog date with an integrated moon-phase display at 6 o’clock, the seconds subdial at 9 o’clock, and the 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock. For seven decades, this has been the classic layout of Patek Philippe’s perpetual calendars with chronograph mechanisms. Nonetheless, there are a few characteristics that distinguish it from all of its predecessors. The seconds subdial and the 30-minute counter are positioned beneath the horizontal centerline, and two small, round apertures between the analog date and the subsidiary dials accommodate the day/night indication on the left and the leap-year indication on the right. The new chronograph caliber with column wheel control and a horizontal clutch that ticks under the classic Patek Philippe dial was entirely developed and crafted in the workshops in Geneva.
Classic chronograph for the 21st century
The new manually wound chronograph caliber with a perpetual calendar CH 29-535 PS Q; probably incorporates more innovative optimization features than any other traditional chronograph mechanism. For example, the engagement and disengagement action takes place in the traditional manner with the driving, clutch, and chronograph wheels, but instead of the conventional triangular teeth, these wheels have newly calculated and patented toothing profiles that reduce wear, boost efficiency, and prevent tooth tip collisions. Moreover, the engagement of the wheels is not adjusted with customary eccentrics but instead with the slightly eccentric shape of the polished column-wheel cap that very precisely defines the position of the clutch lever at its outermost point. Further optimization features include selfsetting hammers pivoted between jewel bearings, the synchronization of the brake lever with the clutch lever, and the slotted minute-counter cam that prevents the excessively abrupt deceleration of the wheel in response to a reset command. Thanks to this group of six patent-pending inventions, the new caliber is decidedly the most advanced of all traditional chronograph movements. It is also the perfect choice for driving the perpetual calendar, one of the most popular Patek Philippe complications. Indeed, the eternal calendar is of particular significance for the workshops in Geneva.
Tradition lives on with a Platinum case of classic beauty
The case of the Patek Philippe Ref. 5270 sets the stage for the complicated caliber CH 29-535 PS Q movement and the clear dial. With a diameter of 41 mm, it is distinctly larger than its predecessors and radiates contemporary generosity and elegance. Crafted from solid Platinum, it is a classic three-part construction manufactured in-house with the traditional cold-forming technique. Placed in highprecision dies, the solid Platinum blanks assume their final shape while being subjected to the force of heavy-duty, high-tonnage presses. Cold-forming is followed by many hours dedicated to machining the bores for the crown, chronograph pushers, correction push pieces, and strap bars as well as for deburring, precision grinding, and mirror polishing; after these operations, the case with the concave bezel and the elegantly curved lugs is finished. The Platinum chronograph pushers exhibit the same slightly rounded rectangular shape as those that adorned the first Patek Philippe wristwatch chronographs with perpetual calendars of the 1940s and 1950s. The strap lugs with the slightly concave flanks were also inspired by these earlier models. The screwed display back with the sapphire-crystal window showcases some of the most attractive elements of mechanical watchmaking artistry: the large Gyromax balance as well as the key levers and wheels of the chronograph mechanism. These beautifully crafted movement parts are among those that can be admired in action.
A closer look at the new Patek Philippe Ref. 5270 validates that it is a very complete synopsis of all the experience, technical expertise, and style competence accrued by Patek Philippe in its 172-year manufacture tradition and the history of its chronograph wristwatches with perpetual calendars that began with the Ref. 1518 seventy years ago.
