Patek Philippe ref:5204 in the very rare a limited production Rose gold /grey dial!! Now discontinued this unworn timepiece, the iconic split second chronograph with perpetual calendar, factory complete full set now available at Madison Time! A great opportunity to own this breathtaking Patek beauty!
The split-seconds chronograph and perpetual calendar Reference 5204 is heir to one of Patek Philippe’s most sought-after Grand Complications. It has been available since 2016 in two rose gold versions, one with a silvered opaline dial and chocolate brown alligator strap (5204R-001), the other with an opaline ebony black dial and rose gold Goutte (droplet) bracelet (5204/1R). Patek Philippe offers connoisseurs a new variation on the rose gold case by combining this precious metal with a matching slate gray dial and strap. A rare and refined nuance that contributes to renewing the style of this great classic.
Despite the complexity of the movement, the indications on the “sunburst” dial stand out for their perfect legibility. The day and month are displayed in two in-line apertures at 12 o’clock. The date hand at 6 o’clock incorporates the moon-phase aperture. Small seconds and the instantaneous 30-minute counter appear on two subdials at 9 and 3 o’clock. Two small round apertures display the leap-year cycle between 4 and 5 o’clock and the day/night indication between 7 and 8 o’clock – functions enabling accurate adjustment of the calendar. Whether by day or night, reading the time is facilitated by the applied hour-markers and Dauphine-type hands in rose gold, all with luminescent coating.
The transparent sapphire caseback offers a magnificent immersion into the heart of caliber CHR 29-535 PS Q, first introduced in 2012 on Reference 5204P-001. This movement is distinguished by its traditional architecture (manual winding, two column wheels, horizontal clutch) combined with seven patented innovations, including six for the chronograph and one for the split-seconds mechanism.
