  • Patek Philippe Ref. 5204R-001

    01: DOUBLE DUTY

    The split-seconds chronograph (also known as the rattrapante) is considered one of the toughest complications to make. Unsurprisingly, Patek Philippe went a lot further by outfitting its version with a perpetual calendar as well. Despite housing two powerhouse complications, the brand’s Ref. 5204R-001 in rose gold retains an elegant 40mm case size.
