Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5270P-014
referee. 5270 is Patek Philippe’s current resident perpetual calendar chronograph. Ref. was born in 2011. The 5270 was the pinnacle of watchmaking technology for the brand and preceded the highly sought-after Ref. 5970. It’s hard to believe that Ref. 5270 has been around for 11 years. But even more amazing is how Patek Philippe has managed to keep the reference fresh, namely by introducing a new generation, bringing back the much-loved salmon dial, and this year, the potentially controversial green dial. At Watches & Wonders 2022, Patek Philippe launched Ref. 5270P-014. This latest release represents the first part of the next generation (fourth generation) of Ref. 5270.
