In the second round released in 2021, Patek Philippe cheap launched five new models, which left a deep impression on people.
After Patek Philippe shines at the “Watches&Wonders 2021” Geneva virtual exhibition, it continues the momentum of the Shanghai “Watches&Wonders” physics exhibition through five models. The new Calatrava, annual calendar and new Grand Complication were added to the Nautilus version last week.
Patek Philippe Calatrava launches “Clous de Paris”
Patek Philippe has updated the manual winding “Hobnail Bezel” Calatrava series. These new models drew inspiration from reference books. 3919 and proposed a more modern aesthetic. The size of the new 6119R-001 and 6119G-001 is 39 mm, and it is available in rose gold or white gold, which is very beautiful.
The brand has replaced the painted Roman numeral markings with the newly applied 18K gold “obus” markings. The new Calatravas also uses a new guilloch-shaped nail pattern bezel, which is twice as thick as ref. 3919.
Although the new references are a discussion point in themselves, attention must be paid to the new manual winding movement that powers them. The new 30-255 PS calibre is Patek Philippe’s beautiful new base movement. Adhering to the tradition of Patek Philippe, each wheel and each function of the movement has an independent bridge. The results are shocking. In addition, the movement has a 65-hour power reserve, accurate to -3 / + 2 seconds in 24 hours.
Brand new stainless steel annual calendar
The brand also quietly released a new polished stainless steel annual calendar. New reference. The 4947/1A-001 calendar has a beautiful blue “Shandong” dial. This watch is powered by the 324 S QA LU movement and has an annual calendar complication and moon phase function.
The stainless steel case is 38 mm long and is equipped with a stainless steel five-row bracelet with a folding clasp. The new Patek Philippe ref. 4947/1A-001 annual calendar.
New complication: series perpetual calendar
Patek Philippe saved the best products to the end with a new reference number. 5236P-001 Embedded Perpetual Calendar. This unique complication displays a single-line perpetual calendar display directly below the dial at 12 o’clock. This new single-line calendar format displays the month, date, and date through discs that are clearly legible and are displayed in a single line in an elongated hole.
Patek Philippe had previously used this method to make annual calendars with a pocket watch from 1972, but this complexity was never included in the watch. In order to achieve this feat, the brand began to use 31-260 REG QA movement. Then it is reprocessed into 31-260 PS QL caliber. The brand clarified the abbreviation meaning of the new movement in the press release: “PS stands for subsidiary seconds, QL stands for “quantième perpétuelen ligne” [in-line perpetual calendar].
The four turntables jumped instantly, and the movement smoothly transitioned from the 31st to the 1st of each month. The new 31-260 PS QL movement received three patent protections.
New reference. The 5236P-001 embedded perpetual calendar comes with a 41.30 mm platinum case.
