Patek Philippe Reference 5316 Grand Complication

Patek Philippe has redesigned its famous Grand Complication with a minute repeater, a tourbillon, and a perpetual calendar with a retrograde date. It sports a new platinum case with a two-tier bezel and lugs as well as a black enamel dial with an aperture for the enamel lunar disk. The retrograde date is indicated by an unusual hand with a diamond-shaped tip.
