TRA­DI­TION AND IN­NO­VA­TION

DA MAN - Caliber - - BRAND STORY -

When you look at a Patek Philippe watch, you’re look­ing at a cre­ation backed by a her­itage stretch­ing nearly two cen­turies. Some­times it’s a de­sign el­e­ment that harks back to a his­tor­i­cal model, other times it’s an en­tire watch. The Ref­er­ence 5270P is one of the lat­ter, be­ing re­ferred to as an “heir” of a clas­sic model from 1941.

The watch’s vin­tage roots is clearly present in its golden opal­ine dial and the gold nu­mer­als which pro­vide su­perb leg­i­bil­ity. The con­fig­u­ra­tion of aper­tures and sub-di­als also hark back to fa­mous his­tor­i­cal watches of this type, from the day and month dou­ble aper­ture placed at 12 o’clock—an­other one of Patek Philippe’s orig­i­nal de­vel­op­ments and now part of the brand’s vis­ual sig­na­tures—and ana­log date with in­te­grated moon­phase in­di­ca­tor at 6 o’clock to the sec­onds sub-dial at 9 o’clock and 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock. Round­ing up the dial’s de­sign is the tachymeter scale along the cir­cum­fer­ence.

And then there’s the Cal­iber CH 29-535 PS Q that comes with a chrono­graph, per­pet­ual cal­en­dar and moon phase in­di­ca­tor. Ac­tu­ally, this is the first man­u­fac­ture-made Patek Philippe chrono­graph move­ment with a per­pet­ual cal­en­dar. This move­ment per­fectly em­bod­ies Patek Philippe’s ded­i­ca­tion to both her­itage and tech­ni­cal break­throughs. On the one hand, the ar­chi­tec­ture of the move­ment can only be de­scribed as clas­sic, what with its hor­i­zon­tal clutch, col­umn wheel and man­ual wind­ing. But on the other, the Cal­iber CH 29-535 PS Q also fea­tures six patented in­no­va­tions, mak­ing it a strong tes­ta­ment of how tra­di­tion and in­no­va­tion con­tinue to drive Patek Philippe to­day and to­mor­row. Prices are avail­able at the Patek Philippe Bou­tique by Cortina Watch at Plaza In­done­sia
