Patek Philippe 1/10 Second Chronograph, a masterpiece of mechanical aesthetics

As the oldest independent family watchmaking brand in Geneva, Patek Philippe watches adhere to handmade exquisiteness. Recently, the brand has launched a new watch, the REF. 5470P-001 1/10-second single-button chronograph watch, which is equipped with a 1/10-second short-time chronograph for the first time. 7 new patents.

The size of the watch is 41mm, and the case is made of platinum, which complements the elegant blue dial. The bezel is a concave design, with a curved sapphire crystal, cabochon shapes at both ends of the lugs, and a brilliant-cut diamond inlaid below the 6 o’clock position of the case, embellishing a luxurious temperament.

The start, stop and reset of the chronograph are provided by a pusher at 2 o’clock on the side of the crown. The classic double sub-dial layout, the 30-minute chronograph at 3 o’clock and the seconds dial at 9 o’clock, the dial edge scale is divided into two layers, the inner ring is the silver dot scale of the second hand, and the outer ring is 1/10 of a second. Train track scale.

Since it is difficult to visually display 1/10 of a second with a single large central second hand, Patek Philippe is specially equipped with two independent timing devices that can run synchronously to drive different hands, one of which rotates in a traditional way, and the other rotates once per minute. One has a red lacquer finish and rotates once every 12 seconds to indicate 1/10 of a second.

The watch is powered by the CH 29-535 PS 1/10 manual-winding movement, which is modeled on the CH 29-535 PS movement and increases the frequency of vibration from 4 Hz to 5 Hz, allowing it to accurately measure 1/10 of a second. The movement contains three innovative components: the Oscillomax silicon escapement speed control system achieves a high swing frequency of 5Hz, and the daily travel time error is only -3/+2 seconds; the 1/10 second hand is made of light and tough Silinvar silicon derivatives, The kinetic energy consumption is lower; the improved barrel shaft reduces the tension of the hairspring and stores more kinetic energy.

Through the sapphire crystal case back, you can see the gold wire parts and gorgeous decorations, and the sapphire crystal case back can be replaced by the platinum solid case back that comes with the watch. The watch is paired with a navy blue calfskin strap with an embossed texture pattern and red stitching, which is very design.

This Patek Philippe watch has a very innovative spirit in the field of short-time timing, and its extraordinary strength makes it have excellent performance. While maintaining high-speed rotation, the 1/10-second hand used for timekeeping can always run smoothly without jumping or vibration. In terms of design, the use of the blue color of the watch also makes the visual look and feel very elegant and refined, which is very in line with the style of Patek Philippe.
