The Patek Philippe reference 5320G was first introduced in 2017, as the latest chapter in a legacy of great perpetual calendars. The 5320G harks back to much admired Patek Philippe perpetual calendars of the 1950s’, displaying syringe-shaped hands (reminiscent of the unique steel perpetual calendar reference 1591), with an off-white dial, applied luminous, white-gold Arabic numerals and additional luminous dots at each hour, to match the hands – sized at a contemporary 40mm.
The 5320G has a glossy, cream-coloured lacquered dial with two, uniform apertures for the day and month, and a moon-phase display and date array at six o’clock. The dial is classically understated, balancing the outer-minute track perfectly. The watch displays four hands – hours, minutes, and seconds for the time, with the date indicator at six. Overall, the dial layout is cleanly designed, with two discrete windows showing the leap year and day-and-night indicators, respectively, on each side of the moon.
This watch comes complete with the original certificate, wallet, instruction booklet and Patek box.
