The first two are the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Chronographs Replica with blue or green dial – the first time the chronograph complication is introduced to Patek’s pilot watch line. The third, and arguably the most original novelty released by the Swiss giant so far this year, is none other than the Calatrava 24-Hour Display Travel Time Ref. 5224R-001.
Patek Philippe Calatrava Travel Time Ref. 5224R-001
What makes the Ref. 5224R-001 unique is immediately apparent: its 24-hour display of both local and home time using two center hands – a first for Cheap Patek Philippe Replica. However, this isn’t the first time a 24-hour display is used by the manufacture.For the Ref. 5224R-001, the good people at Patek Philippe have reinterpreted the 24-hour display in a resolutely modern spirit.
The Case, Dial, and Hands
The case of the new Patek Philippe Ref. 5224R-001 Replica Watches is rendered in rose gold and measures 42 mm x 9.85 mm. Its modern sizing is tempered by elegant design.To preserve its sleek lines, the case does away with dual time correction pushers and instead opts for a patented correction system using the crown. While a little casual for a Calatrava, the blue calfskin strap with nubuck finish and cream stitching that comes with the watch complements the dial to a tee.
The navy blue dial features multiple types of finishes, from the satin brushing of the hour circle to the fine snailing of the seconds sub-dial. On it are applied Arabic numerals, baton-style hour markers, and cabochon 5-minute markers – all in rose gold and with luminescent coating.
Indicating the time in hours and minutes are syringe hands, something that Patek have really gotten into in recent years. The Swiss Patek Philippe Replica hands for local time are coated with luminescent material while the hand for home time is openworked for distinction. The small seconds hand is sword-style and coated with white varnish.
Driving the Ref. 5224R-001 is the 240-part, 44-jewel Calibre 31-260 PS FUS 24H. The base calibre 31-260 is one that the manufacture is very familiar with, having begun life as the movement for the Annual Calendar Regulator Ref. 5235 in 2011. Ten years later, the calibre was upgraded and fitted into the exemplary In-Line Perpetual Calendar Ref. 5236 super clone, with an increase in operating frequency, a boost in mainspring torque, and a change to a heavier platinum rotor.
The finger bridge architecture of the Calibre 31-260 PS FUS 24H is reminiscent of old pocket watch movements, in stark contrast to the rather contemporary colour scheme and dial design of the Ref. 5224. Bearing the Patek Philippe Replica Watches, Seal, it goes without saying that the movement is beautifully finished. Geneva waves span across each bridge in perfectly parallel rows. Every edge is beveled and polished, every wheel brushed.
