Unveiled at Baselworld 2017, the Patek Philippe Ref.5320G Perpetual Calendar has been inspired by many predecessor models that attracted global attention in the 1940s and 1950s.
In 1925, Patek Philippe launched model 97'975, the world's first wristwatch with a perpetual calendar. It was followed by further unique pieces. Eventually, the manufacture integrated this type of watch in its regular collection. The kickoff began in 1941 with the Ref. 1518, a perpetual calendar with a chronograph. A year later, Patek Philippe introduced the Ref. 1526 Perpetual Calendar without a chronograph. Both models were endowed with a face that still thrills collectors: a double aperture for the day and month displays at 12 o'clock and a subsidiary dial at 6 o'clock for the analog date and the moon phases.
The contemporary vintage style of the new Ref. 5320G Perpetual Calendar is underscored by the shiny chocolate brown alligator strap with large square scales. It is hand-stitched, lined, CITES-certified, and secured with a Calatrava cross fold-over clasp in 18K white gold.
