Patek Philippe’s legendary line of perpetual calendar chronographs, the Cheap Patek Philippe 5270/1R Replica is the first in the family to sport an in-house movement, and is the largest at 41mm.
In red gold with stark contrast from its ebony dial, 5270/1R’s presence is magnified beyond its already large case diameter, while yet more is heaped on by its massive bracelet in matching metal.
Patek Philippe’s hand-finished ‘goutte’ bracelet practically drips luxury, flowing around one’s wrist with the same seamlessness as it is integrated into the case. To maintain the visual continuity of case and bracelet, Cheap Patek Philippe Replica has even integrated calendar correctors into the bracelet links adjoining the case.
Also in rose gold are the hands and hour markers (chronograph hands distinguished by sandblast finish), as well as the framing of the windows and apertures for the calendar displays.
In comparison, the no-less desirable Copy Patek Philippe 5270P-001 with platinum case and salmon dial that was also released this year is far more subtle; as is a 2015 model in rose gold matched with silvered dial and leather strap.
