The novelty is presented in a round-shaped 44mm case, crafted from 950 platinum. Both front and back sides of the new Patek Philippe watch are fitted with sapphire crystals.
The top glass covers a charcoal-colored solid-gold sunburst dial. It is equipped with Dauphine-shaped hour and minute hands, made of 18-carat white gold. The applied hour-markers are rendered in the same material.
The small seconds are shown in a counter, exhibited between 3 and 4 o’clock. It is counterweighted by a 12-hour counter between 8 and 9 o’clock. The moon-phase indicator resides at 6 o’clock. The originality of the dial lies in a triple instant calendar display, located in its upper part.
Another hallmark feature of the new Patek Philippe Triple Complication Ref. 5208P watch is the minute repeater mechanism, which is activated by moving a platinum slide, featured on the left side of the case at 9 o’clock. The chronograph functions are operated through a single push-piece at 2 o’clock.
To adjust the calendar, the user should press four corrector push-pieces for the day, month, moon-phase and date. They are positioned between 11 and 12, 12 and 1, 5 and 6, and 6 and 7 o’clock correspondingly.
Inside the timepiece is hidden the brand’s proprietary automatic caliber R CH 27 PS QI movement with the minute repeater complication. It comprises 701 individual parts. Paved with 58 jewels, the movement operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and provides a 48-hour power reserve.
The new Patek Philippe watch is teamed with a matt black, hand-stitched alligator leather strap. It terminates in a 950 platinum fold-over clasp.
