Patek Philippe Introduces ‘Annual Calendar Travel Time’ Watch

It’s one of 12 new timepieces shown at Watches & Wonders Geneva.

Patek Philippe’s new Ref. 5326G-001 Annual Calendar Travel Time features a new movement combining two complications: the annual calendar and travel time system.
Geneva—Of the 12 new timepieces Patek Philippe debuted at Watches & Wonders Geneva, one represents its biggest technical innovation. 
 
The new Ref. 5326G-001 Annual Calendar Travel Time marks the first time Patek Philippe combines two specific complications.

20220403_Patek-1.jpg
The Ref. 5326G-001 Annual Calendar Travel Time comes with two leather straps—beige and black.
 
The result is the self-winding 31-260 PS QA LU FUS 24H caliber, featuring an annual calendar, which requires a manual correction once a year, and the travel time system that displays a second time zone. 
 
The caliber has eight patents. 
 
The annual calendar mechanism was invented and patented in 1996. It displays day, month, and date in the apertures. 
 
The skeleton hand signals home time and the solid hour hand shows local time. There is day and night indication for both time zones. 
 
The Annual Calendar Travel Time utilizes the Calatrava case in white gold with a textured charcoal gray dial with black-gradient rim. The 41 mm timepiece comes with two calfskin straps in beige and black. 
 
It’s priced at $76,882.

The 5226G-001
 
There’s another new addition to the Calatrava collection: the white gold Ref. 5226G-001.
 
Like the Annual Calendar Time Travel, it has a guilloche “Clous de Paris,” or hobnail pattern, on the caseband. The motif was reintroduced in 2021 on the Calatrava Clous de Paris Ref. 619.
 
The 5226G is powered by the self-winding caliber 26-330 S C movement. 
 
Its similarities to the Annual Calendar Time Travel don’t end at the vintage-inspired caseback. It also has a gray dial with black-gradient rim and comes with the same beige nubuck leather and black embossed straps. 
 
It also has a sapphire crystal case back showcasing the movement. 
 
Considerably smaller, the 27 mm timepiece sells for $39,033.

The 5320G Perpetual Calendar
 
The 5320G is a new take on the Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar crafted in white gold with a “rose-gilt” opaline dial. 
 
The Ref. 5320 debuted in 2017 with a cream lacquered dial. The style is vintage inspired. 
 
It is powered by the self-winding 324 S Q caliber perpetual calendar, with day and month displayed in apertures at 12 o’clock and the date displayed by the hand 6 o’clock, as well as moon phases. 
 
It has a chocolate brown alligator leather strap with white gold fold-over clasp. 
 
The 32 mm wristwatch costs $94,624.

The 5172G chronograph
 
There’s also a new timepiece featuring the manually wound CH 29-535 PS caliber, the first classically built chronograph movement created entirely in house by Patek Philippe in 2009 that boasts six patents.
 
The 5172G chronograph has a white gold case and “rose-gilt” opaline dial, plus charcoal gray hour and minute hands.
 
It features a central chronograph hand, instantaneous 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, and small seconds at 9 o’clock. 
 
The vintage-style case has three tier lugs and guilloched chronograph pushers.
 
The 29.6 mm timepiece comes on a brown alligator leather strap. It retails for $80,431.

The 5270P Chronograph
 
Meanwhile, green remains a trending hue for Patek Philippe novelties.
 
The Ref. 5270 chronograph with perpetual calendar was launched in 2011, representing the culmination of generations of Patek Philippe double complications originally introduced in 1941.
 
The new 5270P is rendered in platinum with a lacquered green dial and black-gradient rim, a palette evocative of race cars, the watchmaker said. 
 
It features the manually wound CH 29-535 PS Q caliber, the first perpetual calendar chronograph movement Patek Phillipe developed entirely in house in 2011.
 
It’s priced at $211,721.

20220403_Patek-6.jpg
The 5205R
 
Patek Phillipe also introduced a new version of the Annual Calendar Ref. 5205, initially launched in 2010 in white gold and offered in rose gold since 2013. 
 
The 5205R is also crafted in rose gold, but with an olive-green sunburst dial with black-gradient rim. The polished case has recessed flanks, skeletonized lugs, and concave bezel. 
 
There are faceted rose gold dauphine hands and applied hour markers, plus a rose gold frame underlining the date aperture. 
 
The annual calendar has day, date, and month displayed in apertures along an arc. Created in 1996, it requires a correction once a year on March 1.
 
The watch is powered by the self-winding 324 S QA LU 24H caliber. 
 
The 32.6 mm timepiece features a hand-patinated two-tone olive green alligator leather strap with prong buckle.
 
It’s priced at $55,592.

20220403_Patek-7.jpg
The 4910/1200A
 
In 1999, Patek Philippe launched its first collection exclusively for women, the Twenty-4. 
 
The 4910/1200A is its latest iteration. It has a steel case and bracelet with fold-over clasp.
 
It’s powered by the Caliber E 15 quartz movement. 
 
The dial is rendered in olive green with white gold applied hour markers and Arabic numerals with luminescent coating. The case is set with 36 Top Wesselton Pure diamonds totaling 0.42 carats.
 
It’s priced at $15,377.

The 5230P World Time watch


Notable this year for Patek Philippe are several new World Time watches. 
 
The World Time mechanism was invented in the 1930s by Louis Cottier.
 
The new 5230P timepiece features the self-winding 240 HU caliber with World Time display that shows all 24 time zones. 
 
The local time is displayed at 12 o’clock, chosen by using the single pusher at 10 o’clock. The mechanism for this was patented in 1999. 
 
The platinum case has a diamond at 6 o’clock. It features a blue, hand-guilloched dial with circular pattern inspired by the Ref. 5110 released in 2000.
 
It comes on a navy blue calfskin strap.
 
The 27.5 mm watch is priced at $70,968.

20220403_Patek-9.jpg
The 5231 G World Time watch
 
The 5231 G utilizes that same 240 HU caliber with World Time display. 
 
Over the years, Patek Philippe’s World Time watches have sometimes featured cloisonne enamel maps on the dials. The 5231 G follows in this tradition, showcasing Oceania and Southeast Asia, a companion to the Ref. 5231J-001 debuted in 2019 that depicted America, Europe, and Africa. 
 
It has a white gold 38.5 mm case and matte navy blue alligator strap.
 
It costs $88,710. 

20220403_Patek-10.jpg
The 7130R World Time watch
 
The final new World Time watch is the 7130R, also featuring the 240 HU caliber with World Time display showing 24 time zones. 
 
This edition has an olive-green dial with a hand-guilloched center in an old-basket weave motif. The city names are depicted in white on an olive-green disk. 
 
It has a 36 mm rose gold case, rose gold applied hour markers, and lozenge-shaped hour and minute hands. 
 
The 27.5 mm wristwatch features 62 diamonds on the bezel and 27 on the buckle. In total, the 89 diamonds weigh 1.03 carats. It has an olive-green calfskin strap.
 
It’s priced at $57,957.

20220403_Patek-11.jpg
The 5374/300P
 
The latest version of the Ref. 5374, introduced in 2016, is a high jewelry edition. 
 
It has a curved platinum case with baguette-cut diamonds around the caseband, minute repeater slide, and lugs. The concave bezel has a double row of modified baguette-cut diamonds that form a perfect circle.
 
There are diamond minute markets and baguette-cut blue sapphire hour marks. Patek Philippe says the elaborate stone-setting creates an “amphitheater” effect, with the dial at the center. 
 
In total, it features 228 diamonds weighing 11.62 carats and 13 sapphires weighing 0.72 carats. 
 
The dial is in blue lacquer with black-gradient rim, and its leaf-shaped hands are in white gold. 
 
The self-winding R 27 Q caliber has a minute repeater chiming on two gongs that are wrapped almost two times around the movement.
 
The 5374/300P has a blue alligator strap. The case is 42 mm in diameter.
 
Its price is available upon request.

20220403_Patek-12.jpg
The 7121/200G
 
The final of Patek Philippe’s 12 new timepieces is the 7121/200G.
 
The ladies’ watch utilizes the manually wound 215 PS LU caliber with moon phases and small seconds.
 
It has an officer’s style case crafted in white gold with straight lugs and screwed-in bar straps. 
 
The blue sunburst dial has gold applied Breguet numerals and white gold ear-shaped hour and minute hands. 
 
A double row of diamonds adorns the bezel using the Dentelle setting technique. The 132 diamonds total 1.09 carats. 
 
The 33 mm timepiece has a blue alligator leather strap.
 
It costs $42,581.
