Patek Philippe has introduced two variants of its classic paired complication: the Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5271/11P and Ref. 5271/12P Replica are set with blue sapphires and rubies respectively, with each having a graduated finish dial in a matching colour. Both new references retain the look and feel of the ref. 5270 but certainly pack a punch with their flamboyant jewelled cases.
The first serially-produced gem-set variants of the reference in 11 years, the new pair joins the existing diamond-set ref. 5271P as the bling versions of Patek Philippe’s archetypal complication.Much of the excitement over new releases from Cheap Patek Philippe Replica tend to be centred on its sports watches nowadays but that’s not all that the brand has been doing.
In terms of the design, the new ref. 5271s retain the classic layout and distinctive feel of the perpetual calendar chronographs that the brand is known for, but with a few adjustments to the dial that give it a more contemporary feel. And then the coloured gemstones transform a watch that is ordinarily sedate into something over the top.
While gem-set Best Patek Philippe Replica watches are not new for Patek Philippe, the brand has arguably been one of the foremost proponents of making highly-complicated gem-set watches a mainstream thing, albeit at very steep price.No doubt they will be nearly impossible to buy, at least in the short term, but at least they are not special-order or one-off models as most of such watches were in the past.
Launched in 2011 as the first gem-set variant of the current generation of Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, the ref. 5271 gets a whole new look with lacquered gradient dials to match the sapphires or rubies on the case.
But the new models are not just about bling and colours. Both have a slightly more modern dial aesthetic thanks to a few modest tweaks. Unlike their predecessor Patek Philippe Replica Swiss Movement ref. 5271P with diamonds, the new models do without the tachymeter scale and “chin” on the lower edge of the dial. Instead, they adopt the railway-style outer track that is substantially more pleasing to the eyes. And the new models also feature faceted dauphine-esque hands instead of more classical leaf hands.
Both new versions of the Patek Philippe Replica Watches ref. 5271 have the same 41 mm platinum case that’s set with 58 baguette-cut gemstones on both the bezel and the lugs, plus another 22 baguette-cut stones on the folding clasp, for a total of 4.11 carats across the entire watch.
And they are naturally powered by the manually-wound CH 29‑535 PS Q, the brand’s first in-house chronograph movement. It features a traditional construction comprising a column wheel and horizontal clutch, while offering a power reserve of 65 hours.
