Visually the ref. 5235G is obviously different, being the only model with a regulator-style display in the Cheap Patek Philippe Replica catalogue. The look is rigorously symmetrical and legible, with the same, slightly retro serif font for all the numerals. The twin windows for the day and month are slightly asymmetric, but almost imperceptibly so, the diverging position a consequence of the calendar mechanism.
But it’s the finer details that really set it apart. To say that the ref. 5235G is an agglomeration of qualities and features found in no other Patek Philippe Replica Watches reference is an apt description.
To start with the dial is finished with vertical brushing in three-tones: bright white on the outermost minute track, a dark grey in the centre, and white on the recessed Replica Patek Philippe sub-dials which are decorated with concentric azurage guilloche. The different colour treatment and brushed surface gives the dial one of its most charming qualities, a changing appearance depending on the light.
The Best Patek Philippe Replica logo at three is also novel, being engraved fairly deeply, but left unfilled with lacquer – a feature found on no other model. Though the logo is fairly, maybe overly, large – a characteristic of nearly all modern Patek Philippe watches – it is not obvious. At certain angles, in fact, the logo fades into the brushed surface.
Narrow and linear, the hands are blued to match the markings on the dial, and are perhaps the only weakness on the front. While they are exceptionally easy to read, the flatness and form of the hands feel insufficient for a watch of this price.
Clearly the creation of a designer with an eye for vintage Fake Patek Philippe Watches, the case is unusual and beautiful in equal measure. The lugs are angular, with unforgiving straight lines, immediately reminiscent of the valuable and rare vintage perpetual calendar refs.
