2012/03/13 - Patek Philippe Split-seconds chronograph and perpetual calendar Ref. 5204

Patek Philippe has never departed from the refinement and exacting standards for which it is renowned, and this Haute Horlogerie complication timepiece – Ref 5204 – with split-seconds chronograph and perpetual calendar is the proof. It completes the traditional trilogy of Patek Philippe chronographs with proprietary movements, in this instance the hand-wound CHR 29-535 PS Q calibre whose split-seconds mechanism, a masterpiece of technical innovation and beauty, presents numerous patented inventions. The silver-toned opalescent dial, with three auxiliary counters and 11 indications, is a lesson in clarity and legibility. An extraordinarily elegant timepiece with a platinum case and matt black alligator strap, in the finest tradition of Patek Philippe.
