PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! "It’s very much love at first sight for me with any salmon dial Patek Philippe. The 5270P Perpetual Chronograph is piece you’d consider selling your house for and John Mayer’s unique made-to-order 5004G is a jaw-dropping spectacle of engineering, craft and balanced beauty. The new 5172G sits in somewhere at the intersections of a very expansive Venn diagram as a perfect (yet theoretical and totally unattainable for this writer) watch.A 41mm mechanical chronograph, cased in white gold, it sits balanced on the wrist – vintage pushers not sitting too far out and the case a mere 11.45mm thanks to a lack of rotor. It’s a marriage of soft, pastel salmon pink, mirrored sub-dials at three and nine, with clean applied numerals.And with that lack of rotor in the back, all that intricacy and finishing can be enjoyed when off wrist, thanks to the clear sapphire case-back. It’s a typically impressive marvel of hundreds of hours of work and detailed hand-finishing and Côtes de Genève ‘striping’ along with a touch perlage. It’s a perfect watch.The new platinum 5236P is a very special watch indeed. A grand complication perpetual calendar, this piece’s party trick is packing in all those extra jewels and additional components under the surface to keep, what’s otherwise a normally busy dial, clean.Th automatic 5236P boasts in an in-line perpetual calendar and a new movement (one of the most complex mechanical complications which in theory means the date and time would not require to be changed if the watch were to keep running for decades).These complications in modern times are a flex of the possibilities and abilities of the watchmaker. Does anyone actually need them? No. But that’s not the point.In this instance, it was an extra 118 additional parts just to create this new in-line display, and forging the multiple sub-dials normally making a perpetual calendar a busy affair.It’s a first for Patek, with the day, date and month displayed in three clean and clear windows below the brand, with seconds below and a moonphase. Sitting on wrist there’s heft thanks to the platinum case, but it’s a perfect marriage of a strong, deep blue sea dial with vertical brushed lines, flush enough to sit under a sleeve.Alongside an equally rich blue leather strap, on paper it’s not something I’d have ever thought would have appealed.

. In person and on wrist it’s immediately evident this is a special piece. It glints and glimmers, with the rich indigo dial. You can keep your Nautilus.Patek has also unveiled new World Time variants, including the blue 5230P-001.A more traditionally compact size of 38.5m the dial is adorned with a hand-guilloched motif, the automatic Caliber 240 movement with mini rotor and two city and 24-hour rotating disks serve to keep simultaneous and permanent track of the time in all 24 time zones.It’s a busier dial than most but is a balanced, sharp and detailed piece – the guilloche in the centre a particular point of focus. With its relatively small case size and sitting at just 10.23mm thick thanks to that small rotor, it’s one for dressing up with.And one of the most interesting revelations at Watches & Wonders Geneva 2022 was an entirely rejigged and redesigned, modern, Calatrava.The 5226 is contemporary yet classic, but a move away from the classic Calatravas of old, boasting a charcoal grey dial, applied Arabic numerals and syringe hands.For something of a departure from the slightly thinner tapered bracelets and leather bands, a chunkier, somewhat less Patek offering, the 5905/1A now comes in steel with a very ‘of the moment’ olive green dial.The flyback chronograph and annual calendar sits as a much bigger animal on the wrist, thanks in part to the 42mm case, chrono movement (with a 14.13mm case) and steel bracelet with wider lug width and no tapering.It certainly makes its presence known without being too ostentatious or overtly boisterous. On my wrist it works fairly well – the lugs sitting relatively flat and tidy.At times the subtle sunburst dial is a light olive, others, a deeper almost forest green. It’s a robust piece but still feels entirely wearable on a regular basis. "
