There are three new variations of the 5204, 5905, and 5930 timepieces.

Patek Philippe has introduced new updates to its selection of chronographs, including this new Ref. 5204R-011 in rose gold with chocolate brown dial and matching alligator strap.
Geneva—Patek Philippe’s newest timepieces demonstrate its expertise in measuring short time, the watchmaker says.

It has introduced new variations of its 5304, 5905, and 5930 chronographs.

Patek Philippe has been crafting chronograph movements entirely in-house since 2005. It was that year it introduced the caliber CHR 27-525 PS, which it calls the world’s thinnest split-seconds chronograph movement.

In 2006 it introduced a second in-house chronograph movement, caliber CH 28-520, with automatic winding, a vertical disk-type clutch system, flyback function, large single counter at 6 o’clock, and a chronograph seconds hand that can function as a running seconds hand.

Combining this movement with additional complications is the new 5905/1A, a chronograph with annual calendar, and the 5930P, a chronograph with world time.

Ref. 5905 was launched as a platinum timepiece in 2015, then introduced in rose gold in 2019.

The new 5905/1A is the first in steel, a rarity in the Patek Philippe world. The sporty, casual design has a three-link integrated bracelet, and the dial is a new olive color.

It has a central chronograph hand, large 60-minute subdial at 6 o’clock, and three day/date/month apertures presented in an arc.

Visible thanks to the transparent sapphire caseback is the caliber CH 28-520 QA 24H movement with its vertical disk-like clutch rather than toothed-wheel horizontal clutch; the difference decreases wear and tear, Patek Philippe said.

The steel case has a concave bezel and recessed sides. The bracelet has polished outer links and satin-finish inner links and is inspired by the Aquanaut Ref. 5167/1A bracelet.

The watch, measuring 42 mm, sells for $59,140.

Also utilizing the caliber CH 28-520 movement, specifically the HU edition, is the new Ref. 5930P-001.

It’s inspired by a one-of-a-kind model created in 1940, combining the flyback chronograph and world time. The model was introduced in 2015 in white gold.

The new version is rendered in platinum with a green, hand-guilloche circular pattern dial and green alligator strap with platinum fold-over clasp. 

The platinum case has a diamond marking 6 o’clock and “wing-type” lugs that were common to world time watches of the 1940s and 1950s.

The world time function allows simultaneous time display in 24 time zones. Names of cities are printed in green on the corresponding disk.

The timepiece, measuring 39.5 mm, retails for $100,538.

Finally, in 2009, Patek Philippe debuted its third in-house chronograph movement, CH 29-535. It features traditional elements, like manual winding, a column wheel, and toothed-wheel horizontal clutch system, with various innovations.

In 2011, a Grand Complication version of the movement was introduced with a perpetual calendar.

The new Ref. 5204R-011 utilizes the Grand Complication movement, specifically the CH 29-535 PS Q, first seen in 2012, which features a split-seconds chronograph with perpetual calendar and is one of the watchmaker’s “most sought after” complications, it said.

Ref. 5204 was first made available in 2016 in rose gold with a silvered opaline dial and chocolate brown alligator strap, or with opaline ebony black dial and rose gold bracelet. 

The 5204R-011 is also crafted with a rose gold case, plus slate gray dial and matching gray calf leather strap with an alligator-style embossing and a rose gold clasp. 

It is available with interchangeable casebacks, either sapphire crystal or rose gold. 

The case has a concave bezel and two-tier lugs. The sunburst dial has superior legibility with day and month displayed in two in-line apertures at 12 o’clock. 

The date hand at 6 o’clock has a moon phase aperture, and small seconds and a 30-minute counter are present on subdials located at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock.

There is also an aperture displaying the leap year indication between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock, and a day or night indication between 7 o’clock and 8 o’clock. 

The 40 mm watch is priced at $309,893.
