Patek Philippe’s New Regulator Annular Annual Calendar Watch 5235

The new image of Patek Philippe’s new Ref. 5235 Regulator Annular Calendar three-needle and one-line correction watch is unprecedented in its watchmaking works. This is Patek Philippe’s first watch with a ‘calibration watch’ dial, equipped with a large center indicator, an auxiliary hour dial (at 12 o’clock) and an auxiliary seconds dial (at 6 o’clock). This watch uses the new Caliber 31-260 REG QA movement, which is Patek Philippe’s first ultra-thin self-winding movement. It is made through a mini-automatic dial and can display the auxiliary second hand at 6 o’clock. This is also the first new basic movement using SilinvarR components. The escapement wheel and fork lever of the PulsomaxR escapement and the spring of SpiromaxR are made of innovative silicon-based materials. The new watch features an annual calendar feature that displays the month, week and date in a window, which is one of Patek Philippe’s most popular complex features. The Ref.5235 Regulator Annular Calendar correction watch once again confirms the philosophy of Patek Philippe Watchmaking Workshop, that is, the ultimate goal of timepieces is to be as accurate and reliable as possible. The design of the dial is very special, the large center hand, the auxiliary hour hand at 12 o’clock and the auxiliary second hand at 6 o’clock. This design is to commemorate the floor-standing pendulum clock, which is famous for its accurate travel time. This pendulum clock has been used as precision time-adjusting instrument of watchmaking workshop and observatory for more than 200 years. Until the appearance of the quartz watch and radio tuning instrument.
     Patek Philippe Ref. 5235 Regulator Annular Calendar three-pin first-line correction watch, 18K white gold case, diameter 40.5 mm, thickness 10.65 mm, 31-260 REG QA ultra-thin automatic caliber movement, window type calendar device, can display month, Day and day, power reserve 60 hours, frequency 23,040 half-pendulums per hour, SpiromaxR balance spring, PulsomaxR escapement: (SilinvarR fork lever and escapement wheel), Patek Philippe imprint, waterproof 30 meters, square scale crocodile leather watch band.
     In adjusting the time of the timepiece, the watchmaker needs to see the second hand clearly, so move the hour hand to the eccentric position so that the hour hand will not catch the second hand for several hours of the day. One of the best examples of precision pendulum clocks is a time-adjusted pendulum clock produced by Patek Philippe & Co. at the beginning of the last century. The pendulum clock has been in the office of the company’s current honorary chairman, Philippe Stern, for many years, showing the correct time in seconds.
    It is definitely a major innovation of Patek Philippe to have three independent display hours, minutes and seconds on the dial of the timepiece. It is beyond the scope of design. Based on the new layout, Patek Philippe has realized many innovations. The famous Caliber 240 movement is undoubtedly the best choice for creating a new ultra-thin self-winding movement, but the most unusual is that its auxiliary seconds dial is located at 5 o’clock instead of 6 o’clock. The Calibre 240 movement was born in 1977. The main board is embedded with a 22K yellow gold mini rotor. The movement thickness is only 2.53 mm. It is still the thinnest automatic rolling mill on the market, providing valuable inspiration for new research and development. Patek Philippe’s new Caliber 31-260 REG QA self-winding movement inherits all the advantages of the original work, and uses a number of innovative technologies to become the latest benchmark for building the movement. At 6 o’clock, the auxiliary dial of the second hand is located right in the center of the movement and the center of the outer ring. The appropriate size makes it obtain the best reading effect, which once again confirms the concept of Patek Philippe’s balance time display.
     Caliber 31-260 REG QA ultra-thin automatic winding mechanical movement, diameter 33 mm (basic movement 31.74 mm, annual calendar device 33.00 mm), thickness 5.08 mm (basic movement 2.60 mm, annual calendar device 2.48 mm), number of parts 320 , Number of jewel bearings is 29, Power reserve is 60 hours, 22K gold mini auto disk is refined in one direction.
Innovation 1: SilinvarR swing device
     At the beginning of the design of the movement, it was decided to use a silicon-based high-tech material SilinvarR. This is the first time in the history of Patek Philippe. These include the patented SpiromaxR hairspring with Patek Philippe’s patented end curve geometry. Although flat-rolled, it can still be concentrically stretched. It controls the time of the watch through the PulsomaxR escapement, and its SilinvarR fork lever and escapement wheel also use Patek Philippe’s newly developed geometric structure and have been patented. The SpiromaxR balance spring helps to improve isochronism, and the PulsomaxR escapement can improve energy efficiency. Together, the two bring higher running accuracy and long-term reliable performance. In addition, SilinvarR modules have complete magnetic resistance, shock resistance, and excellent corrosion resistance without the need for lubrication. 5235 The silicon-based high-tech material SilinvarR swing device Patek Philippe’s exclusive patented end curve geometry SpiromaxR hairspring and PulsomaxR escapement
Innovation 2: The new travelling gear train-gear
     Patek Philippe’s engineers expect to develop more than just this new swinging device. They overhauled the time train, balance and pinion between the main barrel and the escape wheel. The gear tooth shape and pinion leaves have undergone in-depth analysis, recalculations, and redesigns based on the center wheel, third and fourth wheels, and their corresponding pinions. These new shapes can improve the meshing of gear teeth and pinion blades, reduce friction, increase the tolerance range of different wheelbases, and improve the efficiency of energy transmission between the barrel and the escape wheel. While reducing friction, it significantly improves energy conversion efficiency.
Innovation 3: High frequency of 3.2 Hz
     The new Caliber 31-260 REG QA caliber 31-260 REG QA innovative technology designed to improve energy efficiency and isochronism also has a variety of positive effects. The classic Caliber 240 self-winding movement oscillates 21,600 times per half cycle, while the new movement’s vibration frequency has increased by nearly 10% to 23,040 vph, which is equivalent to 3.2 Hz, and the power reserve has also been increased. After the vibration frequency is increased, it is easier to meet the travel accuracy requirements of Patek Philippe Seal (not more than -3 / + 2 seconds every 24 hours). At the same time, because the energy conversion efficiency of the travelling wheel train and the escapement is improved, the tension of the mainspring can be reduced, thereby reducing the shear force experienced by the balance wheel. This can reduce the friction between the fine grinding wheel pivot and the jewel bearing, further improving the life and reliability of the movement. These two points are very important to meet the requirements of the Patek Philippe mark, and are also necessary conditions for the watch to be passed on from generation to generation.
Innovation 4: Super Long Mainspring Provides Power
     Due to the high energy conversion efficiency of the movement, a softer and longer mainspring can be selected. Although the Calibre 31-260 REG QA movement has an increased vibration frequency and only one main barrel, its maximum power reserve can be increased to 60 hours, compared to the classic Caliber 240 movement, which only has a maximum of 48 hours. There is another advantage to lengthening the mainspring: the torque torque curve is smoother and the amplitude is smaller when the mainspring is relaxed, so the rate during the full and non-refining period remains stable. Result: The travel time accuracy is maintained for a longer period of time. You don’t have to readjust your time and calendar on Monday, even if you’ve been idle for the entire weekend.
