  • Catalogue Essay

    The perpetual calendar chronograph occupies rarefied air in Patek Philippe's storied history. Its lineage traces back to the legendary 1941 ref. 1518, succeeded by just four further iterations over eight decades - a testament to the complexity perfecting this ultimate expression of the watchmaker's art.

    Launched in 2011, the ref. 5270 marked a milestone as the manufacture's first perpetual calendar chronograph with a fully in-house movement, the cal. CH 29-535 PS Q. In the decade since its debut, Patek Philippe has finessed the model through subtle yet significant enhancements that now delineate three distinct series.

    The inaugural series paired blackened white gold hands and hour markers with railway minute divisions, exuding refined legibility. From 2013, the second series added an evocative 'chin' tachymeter scale contouring the subsidiary seconds dial, as exemplified here. Finally, the tachymeter was truncated at the seconds sub-dial for the current series.

    Offered for the first time at Phillips, this fresh-to-the-market stunning second series ref. 5270G from circa 2014 featuring the rarely seen silver opaline dial is the 3rd known example to have surfaced publicly. With only a two-year production window, the ref. 5270G "chin" stands out as one of the most coveted iterations of Patek Philippe's perpetual calendar chronograph masterpiece. An exceptional example of the watchmaker's art raised to grand complication zenith.
