Patek Philippe to Unveil 3 New Chronograph Calibers…
Baselworld 2010 is officially on, and Patek Philippe, arguably the most prestigious watch brand on the planet, is off with a bang! This is the new and sporty looking Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Split-Seconds Chronograph aka Patek 5951P.
Patek Philippe Ref. 5951P
Split-seconds monopusher chronograph with a perpetual calendar
In this beautiful watch, Patek Philippe is bringing to life its new CHR 27-525 PS split-seconds chronograph movement. This is an impressive watch caliber (movement), from what I can tell – not only does it drive the rattrapante chronograph, it is of course a perpetual calendar –all an overall movement height of just 7.3 mm. Of course a movement like this deserves to be seen – and so Patek put sapphire-crystal display back on the back of the platinum, cushion-shaped case. Was that really fair to say, now that I must tell you I don’t yet have an official photo of the movement? Oh well, plenty to enjoy on the front side of the watch 🙂
I am not sure yet of the other specifications – most particularly the case size – I’ll get back to you on that!
