Indicative complex models
As the fifth-generation perpetual calendar chronograph, Ref. 5270 is undoubtedly one of the most iconic models of Patek Philippe’s online style. It was born as early as 1941, the first generation of perpetual calendar chronograph Ref. 1518. 2499, 3970, and 5970 are all well-known models. Since the 5270 was released in the Platinum Edition in 2011, there have been white, blue, milky white, and various limited editions. In addition to the initial version, the 5270G has also been modified once, and the style is rich.

The 5270R in 2015 introduced the rose gold case material for the first time for this model. The other parts are fine-tuned for the details of the dial. In addition, the silver and blue sides of white gold were also released. The overall layout maintains the consistent classic design of the Patek Philippe perpetual calendar: the three-eye dial with a 12 o’clock week and month window, and the day and night and leap year small round windows at 4:30 and 7:30, reducing one disk with dual display Happening.
Fine-tuned disc junction
The first and most obvious change in the 15-year model change is the overlapping part of the moon phase disk and the outer surface of the faceplate at the 6 o’clock position. Due to the wheel train configuration of the CH 29 series movement, the 3 and 9 o’clock The 30-minute integrating dial and small seconds dial are slightly lower than the center axis of the faceplate. At 6 o’clock, the positions of the moon phase and the date dial will be adjusted downwards, and then they will be stacked on the peripheral speedometer to allow the speed scale to avoid the date. The numbers are curved downward, and the shape is not too beautiful. It is also nicknamed the ‘chin’. From this, it can be seen that watch fans have a lot of criticism.

The 5270G before 2015 had such a design in the second version, and the ’15 -year new model is to omit the speed scale of this block, mainly to clearly expose the date numbers. This way of weighing the weight avoids the abrupt arc while maintaining the integrity of the disk.
The design of the ‘long chin’ before 5270 does not like to look at individuals, but in the past, there was only one tachymeter on the periphery of the old faceplate. Some people may think it is too simple to be a leader of a complex function table; now the new model The scale is more complicated, and it seems to have more momentum. After all, the brand must be changed before the market responds badly.
Three-level information display
In addition to the second fine-tuning, the outer edge of the faceplate is made with three scales. The outermost circle is a 1/5 second chronograph scale, the middle circle is a speedometer, and the inner circle is a minute scale. Since 1270, the 1/5 second scale and the minute scale, or the tachymeter with only one circle, is the most complicated scale design at present. It has more than made up the gap on the surface of the disk, bringing more full and full vision. As for which version is more desirable, it is the opinion of different people, and the fans like it.

Fine homemade movement
The CH 29-535 PS Q manual winding movement with Patek Philippe imprint is crafted with fine craftsmanship, equipped with at least 55 hours power reserve and Gyromax® balance, or gold or silver precision parts can be appreciated through the case back. The CH 29 series movement has been published several years before the use of the perpetual calendar. This time is no stranger to this. The chamfering and sharp plywood are all appreciation of the craft.
