The Grand Complications collection from Patek Philippe showcases the superb artistry and skill of the true masters of horological complications. Since 1839, Patek Philippe have focused on showcasing the most complicated wristwatches, which embody an individual and distinguished elegance. First seen in the Patek Philippe collections in 1925, the perpetual calendar is one of the most famous and useful grand complications. This incredible feat of horological skill states the day, month, date, leap year, and moon phases automatically, without needing any manual adjustment until 2100. The 5236P-001 is a true innovation from Patek Phillipe as, for the first time in their history, the day, date and month appear in a single aperture. Continuing their focus on clear and legible dials, a chic blue vertical satin finish with an eye-catching black gradient appear in a single aperture on a wristwatch. This innovation is further highlighted by gleaming white gold applied hour markers. A 6:00 sub dial displays the moon phases and seconds, with two small circular windows either side stating the leap year and day/night indication. This exciting new model houses the brand new self-winding movement (calibre 31-260PS QL), which has a maximum power reserve of 48 hours. A 41.3mm hand polished platinum case offers an elegant presence on the wrist, with a shiny navy blue alligator strap providing the perfect finishing touch.
The 5236P-001, featuring an exciting new calibre, is the perfect piece to be worn now, and looked after for the next generation.
