This is it, the rundown of new watches at Patek Philippe has been uncovered for the 2019 Collection. While we’ve as of now seen the presentation of another controller in rose gold, there are a few fascinating watches, including this fresh out of the box new Calatrava – plan shrewd, material-wise and complication-wise. Meet the Patek Philippe Calatrava Weekly Calendar 5212A, an amazing, retro-styled and very appealing new model (to say the least).
While the most intriguing element to be examined on this watch will unquestionably be its remarkable showcase and novel complication (in any event for Patek), the primary subject of conversation will be about the plan (a piece) and the material (somewhat more). This new reference 5212A is undoubtedly plainly vintage-enlivened yet in addition presents steel in the work of art, exquisite Calatrava assortment – and we realize that other than the Nautilus and the Aquanaut, Patek isn’t so inclined to making watches in spotless steel.
The 40mm steel instance of this Calatrava Weekly Calendar 5212A isn’t even traditionally molded for the assortment. It takes a touch of late manifestations by the brand, for example, the 5320G or the chronograph 5975 accomplished for the 175th commemoration. It without a doubt includes similar smooth, cleaned bezel and same ventured hauls as found on the last – all things considered, a pleasantly executed case with rich shape. Building up the vintage look is a light earthy colored, normally hued calfskin lash on a steel prong buckle.
The interface with the 5975 doesn’t end here, as the concentric situation of the complication (more on them in a couple) just as the silvered-hued dial likewise reminds this uncommon and restricted watch. The dial highlights exemplary facetted applied markers for the hours and dauphine hands – both commonplace of the Calatrava assortment yet here darkened for a superior contrast.
Now, looking at the dial of the new Patek Philippe Calatrava Weekly Calendar 5212A, there’s unmistakably some news to be found. This watch, other than its sign of the hours, minutes, seconds and date at 3 o’clock likewise includes 2 additional focal hands, with the committed tracks on dial. The first is an obvious sign of the day of the week, found in the focal point of the dial and pointed by a short hands. The dial is additionally prominent for its selective letters and numerals which imitate written by hand characters.
The second sign that is found on this Calatrava Weekly Calendar 5212A – and indeed the genuine curiosity – is the sign of both the week number and the month. Unquestionably nothing complex as far as mechanics (straightforward calendar), it remains rather fascinating as far as show, equilibrium of the dial and reasonableness on a day by day business use.
Powering the Calatrava Weekly Calendar 5212A is the Caliber 26-330 S C J SE (sorry for the name), which is a completely new self-twisting development with improved execution. It is a programmed type with focal 22k rotor, 4Hz recurrence and Gyromax equilibrium and Spiromax balance spring. It is affirmed by the Patek Philippe Seal.
