Below is a personal take on Patek Philippe perpetual calendar chronograph by one of our
members. He wishes to remain anonymous, yet he would like to share some pictures
as well as some first-hand experience with us, which we certainly appreciate !
Ménage à trois
"The 5970 is the modern classic Patek.
It contains enough complications for the movement to be pure art. Something to simply look at to enjoy.
It is a large enough watch to see the metal colors stand out, the Patek Rose gold is one of the most beautiful shades I have seen.
It has a heritage from prior models and now has fathered a newer version, the 5270.
The metal colors are matched to perfectly colored faces to make each one a different watch.
Complicated but readable.
The detail of the dial can only be seen under magnification, but has beauty to admire at any distance.
From a practical matter, they are easy to read, not too heavy, they are comfortable to wear.
Once set, it is easy to use the push pin at 11:30 on the outer case to move all the functions one day at a time, keeping them all in sync.
Thanks for looking, enjoy."
