Watches and Wonders Geneva 2024: April 9th – April 15th, 2024.

Patek Philippe has unveiled a new dial version of the 5236P In-Line Perpetual Calendar at Watches and Wonders Geneva 2024.

First launched in 2021 as the reference 5236P-001 featuring a blue dial with a black-gradient rim in a platinum case (remains in their catalogue), Patek Philippe re-introduces this reference as 5236P-010 featuring a “vintage-inspired opaline rose-gilt dial enhanced by charcoal gray white gold hands and applied hour-markers.”  Patek Philippe’s heritage and expertise in grand complication timepieces is second to none, and the 5236P-010 In-Line Perpetual Calendar continues this legacy.

The 5236P-010 In-Line Perpetual Calendar’s functions:

– Hours and Minutes.

– In-line perpetual calendar display positioned above the centre of the dial. These include days of the week, date, and months.

– Aperture for leap year indicator near the 4 o’clock baton hour-marker.

– Aperture for day and night indicator near the 8 o’clock baton hour-marker.

– Subdial at 6 o’clock displays moon phase and small seconds.

It has an opaline rose-gilt dial. The charcoal gray faceted baton-style hours and minutes hands and the 11 faceted baton-style hour-markers are all crafted in white gold.
