Patek Philippe launches three new versions of (very) complex chronographs
Some of Patek Philippe's best watches feature three modern styles-including 5905 in stainless steel. Patek Philippe Nautilus replica
The past few years have been a bit interesting for Patek Philippe. The company has achieved unprecedented growth, but at the same time, it is notorious for its steel sports watches, not because of the complex functions of precious metals and the simple precious metal formal watches that have been its main trade inventory for decades. The products released by Patek Philippe today once again proved Patek Philippe's leadership in the field of complex watchmaking, while also trying to position its complex watches as not only museum collections (or at least potential museum collections), but also an exercise in contemporary luxury watch design.
First, we have a new version of 5204R, which is a rattrapante chronograph perpetual calendar. In the past six years or so, 5204 has launched two rose gold versions with cream and ebony black dials. The new version 5204R-011 uses a rose gold case, but is equipped with a stone gray dial and a stone gray strap. The new reference comes with an interchangeable solid or sapphire back cover (to be frank, for my 300 large, I would like to see the lovely CHR 29-535 PS Q), Patek Philippe will also continue to provide the existing rose gold reference.Richard Mille RM 055 Bubba Watson
Next is the 5905/1A flyback chronograph with annual calendar. referee. 5905 launched a platinum version in 2015, and then a rose gold version in 2019. This is not the first time Patek Philippe has launched a flyback chronograph annual calendar with a steel case and bracelet-for example, 5960/1A, in 2014. However, this is the first time this particular reference has appeared in steel, and I would not be surprised if it is the most discussed of all three new editions.
Finally, there is the new 5930P. The 5930P is a self-winding world time flyback chronograph with a central chronograph second hand and a 30-minute counter at 6:00. The world time complication is Patek Philippe’s signature complication. The new platinum model has joined the platinum version of the current series (blue dial).
In the many strange events that have occurred in the past few years, the demand for steel sports watches has suddenly surged. The owner of Patek Philippe Thierry Stern has publicly stated that the current overwhelming demand for them and Patek Philippe (especially Nautilus) is a trend, and he does not particularly want to rely on this trend, because he Think that this is a trend, not overall, this is a sign of a permanent change in the tastes of Patek Philippe customers. replica luxury watches
However, there is no doubt that having steel case watches in its collection will provide Patek Philippe's customers with a wider range of choices, which is by no means a bad thing, given that the demand for luxury watches exceeds the level of production.
5905/1A obviously does not mean that the center of gravity of Patek Philippe has changed drastically, but it is a welcome addition, providing high-end interpretations of two very practical complications, from one of the three or four most prestigious watch brands planet. It is difficult to see how Patek Philippe can go wrong. I have some small problems with this watch-42 mm x 14.13 mm, it is quite thick and wide, although the target audience may not feel the same-if you get a new steel-like heat from Patek Philippe, you may be Think that what is worth noting is a feature, not an error. I also think that for a watch, if it is not a sports watch, at least it is adjacent to a sports watch, 100 meters water resistance will be good (although it is more abstract than a real advantage, no one will dive with this watch, although Occasionally swimming seems unlikely). I would also like to see lume on the hour mark, but this is another minor problem.copy watches for sale
Having said that, I think the new 5930 and 5204 are a good reminder of what watchmaking craftsmanship connoisseurs have been looking for in Patek Philippe in history. The horological content of these two watches is impressive, although the price is as amazing as you might expect-now, sticker shock has more or less given way to sticker resignation.
For reasons outside the scope of this article (which is not to say that they are not worth discussing), the horological level of discourse has become very frustrated and dominated by suspicion. However, it is always a good reflection that Patek Philippe has become what it is today for many reasons, and not just because of brand prestige (which is very real). In addition to the actual watchmaking content, Patek Philippe’s reputation may have its own life, but if you only know where to look, the watchmaking content still exists.
