Hands-on – Patek Philippe 5204R Split-Seconds Chronograph Perpetual Calendar – Baselworld 2016 (live pics & price)
At Patek Philippe, there’s the chronographs. There’s also the super-chronographs. There’s a uber-chronograph too. And finally, there’s the 5204, which could be called the “king of chronographs“, a mix of a split-seconds chronograph and a perpetual calendar, so-to-say, the proper essence of what Patek Philippe is. This watch is complicated, it is extremely demonstrative and it is a collector’s grail. For Baselworld 2016, this uber-chronograph is now available in 18k pink gold, precisely under the reference Patek Philippe 5204R-001, which seems to be the perfect occasion to have a look back at this split-seconds chronograph perpetual calendar.
