Terms like "broke the internet" and "a viral sensation" are often overrated but when Patek Philippe launches new additions to their collection, watch lovers across the globe are almost moonstruck with a certain level of madness, a kind of frenzy that is inexplicable. Well, Patek has just painted the town green with two new green shades! The very sentiment aroused by the Patek Philippe’s newly launched chronographs with additional complications. 

Among Patek Philippe's extensive collection, the chronograph has always played a prominent role. In the present collection, the various chronograph calibres are available in over 20 versions, including three new, resolutely contemporary interpretations of the 5204, 5905, and 5930 models. 


The Reference 5905 self-winding flyback chronograph with Annual Calendar, now available in steel, exudes a decidedly sporty vibe. The elegant and casual "sunburst" olive green tint of the rhythmic dial is dignified and casual. Contrasting polished and satin finishes add interest to the connected bracelet.

The central chronograph seconds hand can be used as a perpetual (running) seconds display. The unique Annual Calendar accounts for 30- and 31-day months automatically; requiring only one change every year on March 1st. Sporty and steel go hand-in-hand, it seems! The way a Patek Philippe complexity watch is worn daily is being reinvented with its striking and casual design.


By mixing rose gold with a matched slate grey dial and calf leather strap, Patek Philippe offers aficionados a contemporary interpretation of an iconic model. A match made in heaven, indeed! This unique and subtle delicacy contributes to the Grand Complication's much-desired style renewal.

With its conventional construction (manual winding, two-column wheels, horizontal clutch) combined with seven patented innovations and highly refined manual finishing, the transparent sapphire caseback provides a breathtaking immersion into the heart of calibre CHR 29-535 PS Q.


This legendary watch is reimagined in a new edition with a sporty and cosmopolitan style, combining the brilliance of platinum with a green face and a gleaming bottle green alligator strap. This iconic model's personality is reinforced by a mix of classicism and assertiveness.

A circular hand-guilloched pattern in the dial centre demonstrates Patek Philippe's mastery of exquisite crafting techniques. The World Time function displays the time in 24 time zones with an unusual patented mechanism that allows all displays to be corrected simply by pressing the 10 o'clock pusher.

These new launches by Patek Philip further enhance the brand's sporty, elegant segment and that green most certainly adds a bright pop of colour to the wrist. Striking, bold, legendary, etc, etc... One could describe them with many flowery adjectives, but do we really need to? Let's face it, it's’ a Patek Philippe with yet another twist.
