Aus Bildungsstreik 2009
Turning the 5235 over you almost expect a conspicuous label on the movement that says "Silinvar!" Nope, nothing like that. In fact, if you didn't know what you were looking for then you'd altogether miss that these special parts are in the movement at all. I think Patek Philippe did that on purpose. The amount of people who understand mechanical movements are small enough. So start putting labels talking about metal versus silicon on these movements and you are asking for confusion from a lot of consumers. The movement does look as nice as ever with is proper Patek finishing.
You made it this far so I might as well talk about what the watch does. I am sure there are other Patek Philippe replica watch regulator style watches, but this is the first one that I have personally come across. Regulator style watches are thematically based on old reference clocks used by watch makers and other people who needed an accurate clock to use when setting other clocks and watches. These have separate dials for the hours, minutes, and seconds. The main dial is usually reserved for the seconds while the hour and minutes get subsidiary dials. Thin blued hands do a nice job against the metallic surfaces and railroad track style markers. I will mention it now because they did such a good job, but I love how Patek Philippe matched the color of the hands with a blue alligator strap on the case. Don't you love the design of the strap buckle? Totally retro-cool.
