The remarkable Patek Philippe 5270G
Patek Philippe’s outstanding Perpetual Calendar Chronograph
Meet THE Patek Philippe 5270G 001 Grand Complications Perpetual Calendar Chronograph. This extraordinary watch was first introduced onto the market by Patek Philippe back in 2011. It was discontinued in 2013 when the brand introduced two different dial types for the watch; a silver dial 5270G 0013 and a blue dial 5270G 0014.
The 5270G 001
Other than the two new colours introduced on the 5270G 0013 and 5270G 0014, the dials also had other features changed. For instance a scooping “chin” was created where the date/moon phase sub-dial at 6 o’clock interferes with the seconds/minute track on the outer circumference. Additionally, the seconds and minutes subdials at 9 & 3 o’clock have been noticeably altered in style and a tachometer scale was added on the outer circumference.

The 5270G 0014
The introduction of these two new dials and the discontinuation of the 5270G 001 in 2013 has made the 5270G 001 all the more collectable and rare. It is surely a matter of personal taste and preference whether you like the 001, 0013 or 0014. However undoubtedly the limited nature of the 5270G 001 heightens its appeal for those looking for something special and limited. Of course, none of this information is really needed to truly appreciate Patek’s perpetual calendar chronographs, vintage or modern, which are icons and masterpieces in their own right. Indeed, this watch is one of Patek Philippe’s most important, appreciated and collectable watches – with a price tag to match.
The introduction of the 5270G in particular was a major event for the watch world
since it was the brands first perpetual calendar chronograph that had the entire
movement – design and manufacturing – made 100% in-house.
