A Patek Philippe grande sonnerie replica is a watch that features a minute repeater but …
The high-technical fake Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph ref. 5270 was originally launched at Baselworld 2011 to replace the iconic Patek reference 5970.
A fourth watch, is available in platinum with 58 baguette diamonds on the case and lugs and with a black lacquered dial under reference 5271P-001 and a fifth watch in a 50-piece limited edition was sold at Wempe in Münich back in 2013.The Patek Philippe ref. 5270G-018 is without a doubt the quintessential Perpetual Calendar Chronograph —in a perfectly sized case measuring 41 mm in diameter— and one of the most coveted references among Patek collectors. The Patek Philippe ref. 5270 is available in 18K white gold —with silvery opaline dial or blue sunburst dial— and in 18K rose gold with silvery opaline dial as we featured it here.
Some of the main differences between the ref. 5970 and the ref. 5270 include a bigger case measuring now 41 mm vs. 39 mm on the ref. 5970 and an in-house movement powering the ref. 5270 instead of the Lemania 2310-based CH27 calibre in the ref. 5970. Additionally, there are some other changes on the dial of the ref. 5270G-018 when compared to its predecessor.
The 41 mm case in 18K white gold, features the stepped lugs in a very prominent way and the chronograph pushers are in the traditional rectangular shape with rounded finish. The case featuresa highly polished finish and only the top and bottom of the pushers feature a nice satin-brushed finish.
The silvery opaline dial on the mens fake Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph ref. 5270G-018 features the day and the month in two side-by-side apertures at 12 o’clock, a date indicator with an integrated moon phase display at 6 o’clock, a running seconds subdial at 9 o’clock and a 30-minute chrono-register at 3 o’clock. For more than 70 years, this has been the classic layout of Patek Philippe’s perpetual calendars with chronograph mechanisms first launched in 1941. Nonetheless, there are a few nuances between this watch and its predecessors.
To maintain the case band design intact and unmolested, Patek Philippe decided to include the correctors for the perpetual calendar well hidden in between the lugs. Kudos to Patek for thinking of this in order to make the case band perfectly flawless.
The running seconds subdial and the 30-minute chrono-register are positioned beneath the horizontal centerline that is drawn by the central hands pinion, and two small, round apertures between the date and the subsidiary dials accommodate the day/night indication —with dark blue and white— on the left and the leap-year indication on the right —with numbers from one thru four.
The Swiss-made fake Patek Philippe ref. 5270G-018 is fitted with an elegant hand-stitched matte black alligator strap with square scales and the traditional fold-over clasp with Calatrava cross.
