Patek Philippe 5320G Perpetual Calendar with New Salmon Dial
The Patek Philippe Vintage Style Perpetual Calendar features a new attractive salmon-coloured dial with a modern automatic QP movement.
Patek Philippe has launched new arrivals for 2022 at Watches & Wonders, including this charming salmon-dial version of the Perpetual Calendar 5320G. The novelty is limited to the new dial colour, and the case and movement specifications remain the same as the 2017 model. The reference 5320 debuted in 2017 with a white gold case paired with a cream-coloured lacquered dial that exudes a strong retro feel.
Although it wasn't inspired by a particular retro model, several key features that Patek Philippe referenced in the past found their way on board. Patek Philippe's first mass-produced perpetual calendar watch in 1942, known as the 1526, had a considerable influence on the design of the 2017 model. In particular, the layout of the 1526, with its two rectangular windows at noon and weekdays, as well as the moon phase and date subdial at 6 o’clock, is reproduced on the 2017 perpetual calendar. As Brice pointed out in his review, the Arabic numerals and blue syringe hands were inspired by a rare 1944 perpetual calendar housed in a steel case called 1591.Ulysse Nardin Freak S 2513-500LE-2A-BLACK-5N/1A
Measuring 40mm and measuring 11.13mm in height, the white gold case is stamped from a single block of white gold and then hand ground to obtain sharp lines before polishing. Elegant stepped and tapered claw lugs and stepped case construction are the distinguishing features of this perpetual calendar.
A novelty for 2022 is a lovely new salmon dial color, which the brand calls a "gold-plated opalescent rose gold" dial. The calendar display is arranged in a similar way to Patek Philippe's perpetual calendar watches from 1941. The day of the week and the month are placed in horizontally aligned rectangular holes at noon, and feature a white background and black letters that contrast with the salmon dial. The moon phase display at 6 o'clock is surrounded by numerals representing the date, and two circular apertures on either side are used for day and night display and the leap year cycle. replica luxury watches
The clean, symmetrical layout of the perpetual calendar and moon phase functions complements the Arabic numerals and barrel hands, inspired by the military-style reference 1591. The large, easy-to-read Arabic numerals feature a dark gold outline and are filled with luminous material that glows green in the dark, like the syringe-style hour and minute hands and the minute/second minute markers applied on precision railroad tracks. A domed box-shaped sapphire crystal protects the dial for a retro appeal.
The latest 5320G perpetual calendar is powered by the Patek Philippe 324 SQ self-winding movement, a perpetual calendar based on the brand’s legendary calibre 324. Equipped with Patek Philippe's innovative Gyromax balance wheel and a Spiromax balance spring made of high-tech Silinvar, the automatic movement beats at 28,800vph and has a maximum power reserve of 45 hours. The movement is decorated according to the Patek Philippe Seal standard, with chamfered and polished edges, Geneva stripes, pearl patterns, and is wound by a large 21k gold oscillating weight engraved with Patek Philippe's signature Calatrava cross.fashion replica watch
