Available since 2016 in two rose gold versions with a dial in silvered opaline or ebony, the split-seconds chronograp­h and perpetual calendar Ref. 5204 is heir to one of Patek Philippe’s most sought-after grand complicati­ons. The Ref. 5204R-011, which is one of three new chronograp­hs with additional complicati­ons launched in October, offers a contempora­ry interpreta­tion of the iconic model by combining the precious metal with a matching slate grey dial and strap. Its hand-polished 40mm rose gold case, bearing a concave bezel and two-tier lugs, is a perfect foil for the indication­s on the sunburst dial, which are extremely legible despite the complex movement. The day and month are displayed in two in-line apertures at 12 o’clock, while the date hand at 6 o’clock incorporat­es the moonphase aperture. The small seconds and the instantane­ous 30-minute counter appear on two subdials at 9 and 3 o’clock. An exhibition caseback allows one to admire the magnificen­t calibre CHR 29-535 PS Q, first introduced in 2012 on the Ref. 5204P001. Boasting a traditiona­l architectu­re, the manually wound movement combines seven patented innovation­s – six for the chronograp­h and one for the split-seconds mechanism.
