PatekPhilippe 2018 re-interpreted Ref. 5208, a highly complex watch with a fresh combination of rose gold and ebony black sun-ray pattern dial. The watch has functions such as minute repeater, single push-button timing, and a perpetual perpetual calendar, which are relatively rare even under the watch king.
Ref. 5208 belongs to Patek Philippe’s Grand Complications. As its name implies, its functionality is not insignificant. It integrates functions such as timing, perpetual calendar and three questions, and has a high value of craftsmanship
The rose gold case and lug part of the watch are hollowed out, which looks quite obvious from the side. The K gold three-dimensional hour markers on the face plate are set one by one, which also increases the layered sense of the surface. Patek Philippe has equipped it with a hand-stitched square scale crocodile leather strap and a rose gold folding buckle that echoes the case. It looks elegant and noble to wear.
The side of the lugs is hollowed out, showing a high level of processing and modification, especially from the side, making the watch unique and charming
The R CH 27 PS QI movement equipped with Ref. 5208 has a total of 719 parts. The minute repeater function is activated by the slider on the left side of the case. The three-point and nine-point directions of the dial are the minute and hour counters. There are three windows on the upper edge of the disk. From left to right, the day, date and month are displayed. In addition, the two time dials mentioned above are equipped with a leap year display and a day and night display. Coaxial small-second moon phase disk (note that its moon phase window is downward, which is relatively rare), the dazzling multiple functions are fully integrated in the 42mm diameter, but the faceplate pattern is not It feels too crowded, showing Patek Philippe’s extraordinary design standards.
The R CH 27 PS QI movement is equipped with a micro-automatic disk to help reduce the thickness of the movement. The 719 parts of the movement reflect its highly complex part structure. The PP mark can be seen on the movement’s bottom plate to represent the overall work of the watch And quality can be assured
The R CH 27 PS QI movement adopts a micro-automatic disk design to maintain its thickness at 10.35mm, which is not too heavy, and the number of parts that match it is the number of gems. A total of 63 rubies are more than the basic function style It has a lot of power, and the movement has a power reserve of 48 hours (but if you start complex functions, it will definitely accelerate the consumption of kinetic energy). This highly complex work represents the superb craftsmanship of the watch king. Looking at the watch altar, there are very few brands capable of making functional works of the same level. In 2018, rose gold and black-faced versions were first added. Coming is equally attractive.
