Every Patek Philippe release is a tremendous news in the watchmaking world, following the release of the new 5711, the watchmaker is adding new references to its Watches & Wonders 2021 line-up.
In-line Perpetual Calendar
Patek Philippe is adding a brand-new perpetual calendar with an original in-line display to its rich range of calendar watches. The day, date and month appear in a large single aperture at 12 o’clock. So as to combine originality, legibility and reliability, the watch design engineers have developed the new selfwinding movement 31-260 PS QL with an additional in-line display module, for which three patent applications have been filed. This highly sophisticated new caliber is housed in an elegant platinum case framing a vertical satin-finished blue dial with a black-gradient rim.
Giving fresh momentum to the emblematic Calatrava model featuring a guilloched hobnail pattern also known as Clous de Paris by treating it to a slightly larger diameter and a design reinterpreted in a contemporary spirit.
The faceted applied gold hour-markers, combined with dauphine-style hours/minutes hands, create a sleek and timeless dial aesthetic. Offered in rose or white gold versions, this elegantly refined watch houses the new manually wound movement 30-255 PS with a 65-hour power reserve.
For the first time, Patek Philippe is offering the Annual Calendar in a round Calatrava-type polished steel case with a 38mm diameter that suits all wrists. This watch is equipped with a new integrated and entirely polished bracelet featuring five rows of links. The shimmering reflections of the steel frame an elegant midnight blue dial enhanced by a double vertical and horizontal satin finish. Patek Philippe’s patented Annual Calendar requires only one correction per year.
These more “classical” timepieces are definitely for collectors.
