Ref.5170 watch came out in 2010, it is the first classic chronograph with PATK PHILIPPE adopting its own fully developed movement. The watch is available in gold, white, rose and platinum. In 2019, Patek Philippe redesigned this watch that was loved by the market. The new 5172G-001 watch was replaced with a new polished white gold case with a circular staggered handle and a three-tier lug design. The case design reveals vintage details, and the ‘box-shaped’ micro-arch sapphire glass mirror across the ring is even more unique.
Compared with the previously launched 5170, the new 5172 uses the same CH29 manual-winding chronograph movement, but there are slight differences on the case and dial. For example, the new 5172 uses a round chronograph. , While 5170 is square. At the same time, the 5172 lugs and 5170 are also different in appearance.
The faceplate design has also been renewed. The blue background is contrasted with the white Arabic numerals of the luminous coating in the sky. It is matched with the barton-style platinum pointed hour and minute hands and added with a luminous coating. The central chronograph second hand is sandblasted, equipped with a white transfer minute calculator with an anemometer scale, and a small three-handed hand with a chronograph second hand device for a 30-minute calculator, surrounded by an orbital minute scale. The details of the faceplate are ingenious, ensuring that the day and night light is clear and readable.
The biggest feature of the new 5172 watch is the use of Barton-style hands with digital hour markers on the dial, and the hands and hour markers have a large area of luminous light.
The watch is equipped with a CH 29-535 PS chronograph movement. This movement combines traditional structure with six patented innovative technologies and has become a major feature of the movement. Patented innovations include improved gear shape, improved gear set performance, and a self-adjusting reset hammer. Taking into account the function and performance of the movement, the movement design also adds several technical features, such as the 30-minute instant jump calculator. The elegant appearance and fine details of the watch are clearly visible under the sapphire glass case back.
The top of the chronograph button is staggered
The 5127G-001 watch comes with a blue calfskin strap, which is all hand-crafted to match the dial. The strap is equipped with a white gold folding clasp. Also due to the debut of the new 5127G-001 watch, the 5710P-001 platinum watch will also be discontinued in 2019.
