Baselworld – Patek Philippe Chronograph perpetual calendar – 5270 /1R-001

The metal “Goutte” bracelet in a rose-gold version

The Patek Philippe 5270 / 1R-001

In the men’s collection the rose-gold Ref. 5270 chronograph with a perpetual calendar has been paired with a brown alligator strap since 2015. Now, it comes with the exclusive “Goutte” bracelet in gold that literally blends with the case. Consisting of five rows of droplet-shaped links, the bracelet is secured with a fold-over clasp and hugs the wrist with inimitable suppleness. Its elegance is the result of painstaking polishing processes that can only be executed by hand. An interesting detail: the correctors for the perpetual calendar displays are accessible via discreet notches integrated in the case-side links of the bracelet.

The silvery opaline dial was replaced with an ebony black sunburst face that enhances the contrast of the leaf-shaped hands and the applied rose-gold hour markers. The displays of the perpetual calendar are harmoniously arranged and remarkably legible: analog date at 6 o’clock, double aperture for day and month at 12 o’clock, two small round windows of the day/night and leap-year indications, as well as a moonphase display. Sandblasted hands clearly distinguish the chronograph indications.

5270 / 1R-001The tachymeter scale on the circumference of the dial allows speed readings with the chronograph hand. The addition of a perpetual calendar to the basic manually
wound CH 29-535 PS chronograph movement – the first classic, totally manufacture-made Patek Philippe chronograph – called for the development of an extraordinarily thin calendar mechanism (182 individual parts with a height of 1.65 mm). The architecture and finissage of this manually wound movement with a column wheel and a
horizontal clutch can be admired through the sapphire-crystal case back. The watch is delivered with an interchangeable solid back in rose gold.

The new Ref. 5270 /1R-001 with a bracelet in gold replaces the rose-gold predecessor model worn on an alligator strap. Ror more info email us on info@elcol.com
