The annual Basel International Jewellery and Watches has been opened, and the special report team in front of the Watch House has begun to work. They will bring you the latest, fastest and most comprehensive watch exhibition reports. Now let us first appreciate the big picture of the latest watch launched by Patek Philippe at the Basel watch exhibition.
There are two types of Patek Philippe’s most popular complication watches: an annual calendar that only needs to be adjusted once a year and a chronograph with a precision chronograph. The Patek Philippe Almanac chronograph with these two functions is one of the most admired by many watch enthusiasts. This time, Basel, Patek Philippe launched a new platinum Ref. 5905P annual calendar chronograph, a total of two watches.
This new Ref. 5905P annual calendar chronograph inherits the appearance of the Ref. 5205 calendar, but uses a new color scheme and details. The 42mm case is made of 950 platinum, which is perfect in both appearance and finishing details. The chronograph seconds add a clear minute scale to the corresponding outer scale, and the inside is a large ring with a platinum three-dimensional hour scale. There are also three windows showing the almanac function between the 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock positions. The date window at 12 o’clock is large with a polished platinum frame. At 6 o’clock, there is a large 60-minute cumulative timer, and a small day / night window under the hands.
The movement adopts Cal.CH 28-520 QA 24H automatic winding movement, which combines the two popular functions of flyback chronograph and annual calendar. Launched in 2006, it was developed, designed and manufactured entirely by Patek Philippe. The large 21k gold automatic rotor has artistic decoration on both the rotor and the splint. The splint of this movement is not decorated with classic Geneva stripes, but is rounded with grain to echo the circular pattern on the rotor. Elegant contrast between gold and silver rhodium-plated surfaces, sparkling chamfering and rich ruby bearings, exquisite and beautiful.

In the future, we will continue to provide more and more intuitive exhibition reports for everyone, so stay tuned.
