Feature: Patek Philippe Releases New Green Dial Perpetual Chronograph At W&W

Patek Philippe’s Perpetual Chronograph Reference 5270 is most often associated with the salmon dial version, a distinguished looking watch that bears all the hallmarks of classic Patek chronographs from the pre-Nautilus era.

This striking new version released at Watches and Wonders features a stunning gradient dial in verdant green—very on trend—which differs from the aforementioned 5270P-001 salmon pink model in that it has sword rather than feuille hands and gold applied baton markers throughout, rather than a combination of Arabic numerals and small squares. This version also dispenses with the tachymeter scale.

Otherwise it’s an almost identical watch, retaining the same case and lugs, chronograph sub-dial layout, as well as a leap year and day/night indicator. The day and month are displayed in adjacent windows beneath 12 o’clock and the deep blue of the moon phase display stands out beautifully against the vivid lacquered green of the dial.

Its 41mm case is platinum, and it uses Patek’s manual-wind Caliber CH 29 535 PS Q movement, which holds a power reserve of 55 hours. An exhibition case back reveals the stunningly finished movement within, not that you'd expect anything less from a Patek Philippe watch.
