Patek Philippe 5469-014 is definitely a good and exquisite watch, but is little be away from the mainstream—its layout and dial color. I like that one which is not always flashy, it just satisfies out needs for an ordinary watch. Traditional layout on dial deviates from Patek Philippe, as it has three counters of perpetual calendar. Don’t forget we are talking about the watches based on its tradition and classism. Under the lower part of the case sets a moon phase indicator where there are painted with shining moon and stars. Perpetual calendar is shown through three aperture: at 9 o’clock, there is a week display, moon phase display at 3 o’clock, leap year display at 12 o’clock and date display at 7 o’clock. When the first Patek Philippe watch was released, it was a graceful watch, and the new color one in 2014 creates a warm sphere.
When it comes to the Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Ref.5175, one of the biggest characteristic of this watch is the Simultaneous Jumping Perpetual Calendar. Perpetual Calendar has a clear reading, and the four Perpetual Calendar counters go around the golden frame to display the four numbers of year. The month display is set at 3 o’clock, while the date and leap year are displayed at 6 o’clock, while the month displays at 3 o’clock. Time displays at 12 o’clock and 60 minute counter at there. In addition to the four counters, other date display can do the simultaneous jumping. In terms of date, this kind of jumping comes more important as the date report requires precise information. What’s more, the Grandmaster Chime has many other intelligence gadget to avoid the mistaken operation, so that it could guarantee its simplicity, and safety.
If you are a fan of Patek Philippe, just buy a Patek Philippe watch to be a member of the Patek Philippe family.
