Patek Philippe Replica Watches would be adding a new model to the existing collection of ref. 5270 perpetual calendar chronographs: a 5270P with a salmon dial. Ben told you all about the watch as soon as we had the details and even gave some context for the particular dial tint.The watch is 41mm across and 12.4mm thick, and for this model the case is rendered in brightly polished platinum. Everything about the case feels very traditional and the lugs have a distinctive faceted motif that I quite like.
The movement is also probably familiar to you by now. It’s the caliber CH 29-535 PS Q, which combines a chronograph with a perpetual calendar featuring a day/night indicator, leap year indicator, and moonphase display. The finish is excellent and very traditional in nature. It might not be quite as immediately eye-catching as what you’d see on a Datograph, but it’s elegant and impeccable.
This is the first time the Patek Philippe Replica 5270 is being made in platinum, but it’s really the dial that is the star here. It’s a slightly metallic salmon color, and there are old-school Arabic numerals from 10 to 2, and applied markers at the other hours. All of the hour markers are a soft black color, with the hands matching too. This last bit is one of my favorite touches on this watch. It makes the whole package feel extremely contemporary, despite the vintage inspiration and precedent. You’ll also notice that there is no “chin” down at the bottom of the dial, with the tachymeter track bending around the date numerals. Instead, the numerals just cut into the track as they did on the ref. 5970.
Also, that dial featured stick markers and white gold hands instead of the black Arabic numerals and black hands seen here. As an aside, there is another new Fake Patek Philippe Watches 5270, the 5270/1R, which is rose gold with a black dial and matching rose gold bracelet. It appears that these are the only two models still being produced, with the others now discontinued.
On the wrist, I’ve got to admit that the 5270 wears extremely well for its size. This is a big watch for Luxury Patek Philippe Replica Watches, no doubt, but those curved lugs are spot on, and the way the case sits on the wrist is thoughtfully considered. I always expect the 5270 to feel clunky when I see it off the wrist, but then the moment the strap is closed I remember why so many people love this watch. It’s still too big for me as a daily wearer, but that’s just a question of personal taste. The contrast between the platinum case and the salmon dial is even stronger once you put the watch on though, and I’m really into it.
All of that said, this is my favorite version of the Patek Philippe Replica Swiss Movement 5270 by a long shot. The dial color is spot on and the choice of black Arabic numerals and black hands takes things to the next level. While I’ll always wish this watch was a little more like the ref. 3970, overall Patek Philippe has done a great job making an existing watch feel new and special again.
