Patek Philippe Grand Complications In-Line Perpetual Calendar

The watch is powered by the self-winding calibre 31-260 PS QL, which includes 503 parts and offers a power reserve of 38 to 48 hours. Share

In 2021, Patek Philippe introduced the Perpetual Calendar 5236P, which quickly became notable for its innovative in-line display, designed to enhance readability. The latest model maintains the core characteristics of the original but introduces a salmon-coloured dial, which continues to enchant and appeal to watch enthusiasts with its timeless design.

The new iteration, designated as the Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar 5236P-010, is encased in a 41.3mm 950 platinum case with a height of 11.07mm, and it offers water resistance up to 30 meters. The polished finish of the case adds a layer of elegance, highlighted by a discreet diamond placed at the 6 o’clock position on the side of the case—a distinctive feature of Patek Philippe’s platinum watches.  Functionally, the watch includes a corrector pusher located next to the 2 o’clock index for adjusting the month and year, while other pushers for setting the date, day, and moon-phase are positioned on the opposite side. The crown is used exclusively for winding and setting the time, simplifying the operations.

The dial of the Perpetual Calendar 5236P-010 is described by Patek Philippe as vintage-inspired opaline rose-gilt, offering an eye-catching visual appeal. It features charcoal grey, white gold applied baton-style hour indices, and a perpetual calendar display arranged in a single line showing the day, date, and month. This display is set within a distinct framed aperture located above the dial’s centre, topped with the renowned Patek Philippe logo.

The dial also includes a detailed minutes railroad track with five-minute interval numerals, enhancing its classic appearance. White-gold baton hands complement the hour markers, and the dial’s functionality is completed with a moon phase display integrated into the small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock. This subdial also houses a tiny round window showing the leap year cycle, with a corresponding day/night indicator on the opposite side.

The mechanism driving the 5236P-010 is the self-winding calibre 31-260 PS QL, which operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides a power reserve between 38 and 48 hours. This movement is powered by a unidirectional mini-rotor made of platinum and features a patented in-line perpetual calendar module consisting of 503 precisely assembled parts. The sophisticated calibre is visible through the sapphire caseback, which is adorned with perlage, Geneva stripes, and gold engravings, showcasing the meticulous craftsmanship typical of Patek Philippe. The watch also offers an interchangeable caseback for those who prefer a more understated look without a see-through element.

Completing the presentation of this year’s model, the Patek Philippe 5236P In-line Perpetual Calendar is paired with a glossy chocolate brown alligator leather strap that features square scales. This strap is fastened with a platinum fold-over clasp, ensuring the watch remains securely attached to the wearer’s wrist. As part of the permanent collection, the 5236P-010 is priced at CHF 120,000, reflecting its status within Patek Philippe’s illustrious lineup of complex and beautifully crafted timepieces.
