Patek Philippe - Ref. 5212A-001 Calatrava Weekly Calendar

Patek Philippe is expanding its collection of timepieces featuring calendar complications with the addition of a weekly calendar that also displays the current week number.

Patek Philippe 5212

The new Ref. 5212A-001 Calatrava Weekly Calendar comes in a stainless steel 40 mm x 11.18 mm case which stands out for its polished bezel which extends over the two-tiered, gently curved strap lugs. The vintage aspect is emphasised by a box-type sapphire-crystal glass with a slightly cambered profile.

The silvery opaline dial displays an unusual layout with five hands from the centre. The hours and minutes are indicated with elegant Dauphine hands in blackened white gold. They feature two lapped facets, a perfect match for the applied baton indexes in blackened white gold with four lapped facets each. A slender counterbalanced hand tracks the seconds while the day of the week is displayed by a hammer-shaped hand with a red hammer head on a circular scale in the middle of the dial.

A second hand of the same design delivers week number and month readings on two concentric scales at the periphery of the dial. These calendar indications are complemented by an aperture date at 3 o'clock.

Based on the handwriting of one of the manufacture’s designers, the black typography was created explicitly for this watch.

A 7-point star on the hour wheel in the centre of the movement controls the day-of-week display. Via a lever, a second 7-point star with an extended Sunday tip drives the 53-tooth week wheel. The calendar displays advance semi-instantaneously in discrete steps to avoid energy consumption peaks.

Corrections of the day-of-week and week-number displays are performed with two push pieces recessed in the case flank at 8 and 10 o’clock. The date can be corrected with the crown pulled halfway out.

Thanks to a fail-safe concept, the user can perform such corrections at any time of day or night without risking damage to the movement. The manufacture places great emphasis on convenience and user-friendliness. Pursuant to the international ISO 8601 standard, Patek Philippe chose Monday as the first day of the week rather than Sunday, which is commonplace in some countries.

Interesting to mention, the first week of the year is the week that includes the 4th of January. The 53-graduation scale considers years with an extra week. This is the case every 5 to 6 years. The next occurrence falls in 2020.

The weekly calendar mechanism is not the only special feature of the Ref. 5212. Patek Philippe also endowed this watch model with a totally new movement based on the self-winding calibre 324 whose designation 26-330 reflects its diameter of 26.6 mm and height of 3.3 mm. Beating at a a frequency of 28,800  vibrations per hour, it offers a power reserve of 35 to 45 hours.

The refined architecture of the movement and its finishes, in line with the Patek Philippe Seal standard, are showcased through the sapphire-crystal case back.
