Oh what a difference a dial up (as well as material) may create. The 5270, a perpetual calendar chronograph from no less than Patek Philippe, was released in 2011 in white stone, updated in 2013 with a few new dials, those dials were substituted (nixed that”chin”), we saw it released in rose gold a bit afterwards, and we even saw a 5271P — that is a platinum watch covered in diamonds. The 5270 is a benchmark product for Patek Philippe 5270 rose gold replica watches , also within our detailed Week On The Wrist inspection by Paul Boutros, we declared it just about as nice a watch since was created in Switzerland in a specialized and finishing perspective. But a quality watch does not a strong seller make, and also the 5270, despite its watch nerd merits, just never acquired the cult status that its Lemania-based predecessor, the 5970 did.

The 5270 in all of its guises can be obtained relatively easily from authorized dealers, even being offered in the occasional reduction from said traders. It’s hard to say why this is — is it the slightly larger case size, the fancier lugs, the busier dial, the fact that being predicated on Patek’s own standard allows it to be produced with greater simplicity? It is difficult to say, really, but today’s announcement of a brand new 5270 — this time in platinum, will earn a marked change in the management of this reference.

Platinum is, naturally, the ultimate metal for Patek Philippe 5270 salmon replica watches (barring stainless steel or ceramic — used sparingly and practically not to complications). Platinum complicated watches tend to out perform their golden counterparts by a substantial margin. Take, by way of example, the 5070P, which sells for roughly double what the a 5070 in G, R, or J sells . The 5970P sells for probably $45,000 over some of the gold bits. And today, we’ve got a 5270P. And in addition to that, we’ve got it with a salmon toaster! With arabic numerals!

So not only is this brand new iteration of this 5270 platinum, it also features arguably among the hottest dial treatments around today for luxury watches — a salmon colored dial — and rather than sticking with the traditional stick numerals, we have Arabic (not Breguet) numerals. The look is plain awesome, and what a collector would want to see from a flagship reference. You will notice of course there is no chin at six o’clock, however, the apertures in 12 are not colour matched — I wish that they had been — but I will survive.

The simple fact that Patek has chosen to release its ultimate 5270 with a salmon colored dial is intriguing, and here’s why. Salmon has for the longest time been associated with extremely rare, special order pieces earmarked for its prominent collectors. Around precisely the exact same time, Patek created a salmon dial 5970 to our friend Jason Singer which was featured in his Talking Watches.

Many decades after, Patek Philippe 5270 perpetual calendar chronograph fake watches revived the 5970 in 2015 with a salmon dial, although with different hour markers, also announced it at the London Grand Exhibition. Though popular belief is that only five were created and all were delivered through London, I don’t feel this to be true and am mindful of these watches going through different retailers, including but not restricted to Wempe in London and the Geneva Salon. Regardless, any 5970 with salmon dial is quite valuable and rare. The piece below was observed at Ahmed Rahman’s Talking Watches episode.

Can I mention that Patek Philippe 5270 1r replica watch also fell a few 5070s with salmon dials, too? The watch at left was again part of this”classic” collection that many feel to be exlusive to London. The watch at right, with dauphine luminous hands and Breguet 12 was created earlier for a particular request from a client.

Salmon dial 3970 and 5004s do exist, both from the Clapton collection and elsewhere. Many have showcased the now famed”M.O” inscription at bottom for Michael Ovitz, the founder of CAA, who famously requested for several unique collections created, but others do pop up from time period.

Last year, Patek unveiled a normal production — if you can call it that, one has to complete a program — salmon dial up on its split-seconds perpetual calendar, the 5372P. An individual should not confuse this reference for your 5204 — it is thinner and smaller with a wide margin and is far more rare and complex. Also expensive. However, it was among the first catalogue watches to get a salmon dial.

And today, as mentioned above, we’ve got a 5270P with a skillet. It doesn’t seem like much, I know, but I just have this feeling that this one iteration of the 5270 would be the one which changes the path with this whole reference. It’s exactly what collectors needed — it’s what they have wanted — to take care of the 5270 again. As mentioned previously, it is a solid view, actually the benchmark for perpetual calendar chronographs in the world these days, but it was missing something — a killer spec’d reference — and today we’ve got one. I will be curious and excited to see how the requirement for the 5270P influences pricing and accessibility of the rest of the metals of this 5270. My guess is it is going to help, a great deal. Only time will tell.

Patek Philippe has been associated with endless calendar chronographs for many decades now. Not only was Patek the first to unite both complications at a wristwatch (with the ref. 1518), but the brand even added, in some references, a split-seconds function or even a second repeater to this prestigious package. 5270).

It’s quite difficult to imagine, however, the Patek Philippe replica watches 5270 is in fact the easiest endless calendar chronograph of this collection; bear in mind the two other references together with these complications also feature a split-second (ref. 5204) or a minute repeater (ref. 5208). Clearly, though, the 5270 isn’t a simple watch. It’s the latest edition in a very long lineage that started with the mention 1518, the world’s first perpetual calendar chronograph, introduced at the center of the 1940s. This extremely rare bird was produced for just 13 years, in 281 pieces, and includes a movement according to a Valjoux ébauche but highly modified and adorned with the Geneva Seal. A couple of years after, during the early 1950s, Patek Philippe 5270 rose gold replica watches established the Reference 2499, an improved edition of the perpetual calendar chronograph. Very similar in layout, the 3970 along with the 5970 came later that, with little improvements and updated shapes. But in 2011, the 5270 added something very interesting for this classical model: an in-house motion. No more Valjoux or Lemania base here, but rather pure Patek Philippe.

Even if it appears very similar to the previous mention, nothing is identical. The design, layout, motion, case, size… everything is new, but stays classical. Patek Philippe chose not to violate the codes, but intended to improve and modernize an icon, as it introduced this benchmark in 2011 with a silver-white dial. In 2014, Patek Philippe 5270 perpetual calendar chronograph replica watch has come out with fresh dials, including the blue one we had the chance to handle for a couple hours.

Earlier this new reference debuted, Patek Philippe would normally power its chronographs with a Lemania-based movement, Caliber 27-70. Even if this ébauche was profoundly modified, both on the technical and finishing fronts, Patek at one point decided it couldn’t outsource anymore in an era where the expression”in house” has gained so much importance. So the brand created a completely home-made motion, developed and fabricated in-house — i.e., a manufacture movement. Patek Philippe Caliber CH 29-535 PS Q is a 32-mm manually wound engine that is impressive not just because of its complications, but also because of the caliber of its own finishing. Much like every contemporary Patek Philippe 5270p salmon dial fake watches view, it is adorned with all the Patek Philippe Seal. As we told you lately, the strictest of quality control standards are exerted in the manufacturing of every single component of this watch — the motion, the case, dial, hands, et al. — together with rigorous standards applied to shape, function, and accuracy.

A close look allows us to see the polished, beveled angles of the bridges and of the levers; the right graining of the many components that compose the chronograph; the glistening screw heads and slots; many gold chatons; along with Geneva stripes that continue from 1 bridge to another. The attractiveness of the movement comes out of its pleasantly deep layout, which allows viewing of all the gears’ and levers’ moves when activating the pushers. Some long-term Patek Philippe 5270 1r clone ‘s collectors might prefer the older Lemania’s bridges, but this one is really very nice, also. The chronograph does (of course) use a column wheel using a vertical clutch for its engagement — the column wheel is, as is standard with Patek Philippe, concealed by a protective cap (that you can see on the photo above, in the lower part of this movement). The chronograph itself is very classical, using a bi-compax architecture displaying the measured seconds with a central hand, the moments in a subdial at 3 o’clock and the running moment in a subdial at 9 o’clock. In the end, it comes with the exact Gyromax balance wheel, using a free sprung architecture.

The final of the modifications, and also brand new for 2014, is that blue colour blend (both for the dial and the strap). Originally available in white gold with a white/silver dial, it’s now feasible to have the 5270 in blue, a somewhat less classical color and perhaps, therefore, easier to wear with a casual outfit as well. Even if blue is a cold colour (particularly when paired with a white-gold case), this new variant is, yet, more appealing. The dial is not plain but slightly guillochéd, with a sunburst pattern, and consequently provides off really nice reflections (that were sadly hard to capture during our photo shoot). The contrast with the white gold hands and applied indexes and also the snowy inscriptions is exceptional and allows for very good legibility. Furthermore, the blue stays serious enough for Patek’s lovers but adds an excess attractiveness to quite a classical reference.
