Swiss Patek Philippe 5470P Watch Review, another example of “God’s work”.

Today’s watch is the most powerful in the world of iconic watches. It’s incredible how sophisticated this Patek Philippe watch is technical. I was able to take some time to get to know it. This is the Patek Philippe 1/10 Second Chronograph 5470. Patek Philippe is yet another “God’s Work”.

It is simple to understand the basic structure of a mechanical watch’s movement. Each movement has a similar structure. There will be many details, and even subtle problems, when you implement different functions. It is important to know if the gear meshing is correct, if the pointer is smooth, and if the transmission torque is stable. These minor issues will not impact the watch’s function and brands won’t spend too much time trying to fix them. These subtle mechanical issues are not something that brands will attempt to solve. However, few brands will invest in the best technology and create new structures to do so. This is Patek Philippe. The 5470 chronograph is the latest example.

Why was Patek Philippe able to launch the 5470 chronograph or Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph 5960

5470 is the 1/10 second chronograph that Patek Philippe has ever made. It swings 36,000 times per hour.

Famous watches often use a 1/10 second chronograph. Zenith El Primo Chronograph Movement, Blancpain F385 Chronograph Movement, Grand Seiko Crown Blue Lion 9S Series Movement, all swing frequency 36,000 / hour with an accuracy of 1/10 Second.

Zenith flagship watch, swing frequency 36000 and 1/10 second chronograph.

There is one problem. A majority of 1/10-second watches have a central secondhand, which creates a circle in 60 seconds. The movement is accurate to 1/100th of a second, but it’s not visible with the naked eye. This problem has been a problem that Zenith had previously attempted to resolve. Patek Philippe, a Swiss chronograph maker, has joined the fray and created a chronograph that can be read directly from the dial with a precision of 1/10 seconds. This is the 5470, a remarkable feat of technology.

How to see Patek Philippe 5470 in a fraction of a second?

Two seconds hands are located in the middle of the dial at Patek Philippe 5470. Two seconds hands are located in the center of the dial of Patek Philippe 5470. One is red and one is white (off-white). The timing begins at 2 o’clock. The white hand is the normal chronograph hand and makes a circle in 60 secs. The red hand, on the other hand, is the 1/10 second chronograph hand. It makes a circle in 12 seconds. The red needle is tenths of seconds, while the white needle shows “seconds”. 6.8 seconds is an example. The white needle signifies 6 seconds and the red needle 0.8 seconds.

It is easy to see the red hand. There are 12 red scales on a 5470 dial, with 10 grids between them. This is about 1/10th of a second. The red needle is located on the first grid. This is only a few tenths. No matter where the red needle is located on the dial, you can count the grids starting from the closest red scale in front. The first grid is just a few tenths.

It is, for example, 54.7 seconds in the image below. As you can see, the white needle is passing 54 and close to 55. The red needle counts backwards from the scale in front. The seventh grid is 0.7. This makes it 54.7 seconds total.

The figure shows 54.7 seconds.

It is, for example, 17.9 seconds in the image below. As you can see, the white needle is almost 18, after 17, while the red needle is from the front. The ninth grid is 0.9 and takes 17.9 seconds.

The figure shows 17.9 seconds.

In the image below, it’s 20.0 seconds. The white needle points to 20 seconds, while the red needle falls on the red scale (0, and together it is 20.0 Sekunden).

The graph shows 20.0 seconds.


It seems easy and the basic principles are simple to grasp.

The 5470 uses the manual chronograph Patek Philippe CH29 series manual movement. Original CH29 movement had a swing frequency 28800. The 5470 now has 36000 swing frequencies for 1/10th of a second. The movement’s specific number is CH29-535 PS 1/10.

Patek Philippe 5470 uses the CH29-535 PS1/10 chronograph movement.

The 5470 has an additional 1/10th second red time, so Patek Philippe added a 1/10th second wheel train to the original CH29 normal timing wheel train in order to control the 1/10th second red. The 1/10-second wheeltrain is installed directly on the four wheels (that’s the second wheel of a travel wheel train), and driven by the four wheels. It drives the central red needle through a huge clutch gear called the horizontal clutch. ,start stop.

3. All 1/10 second-wheel trains are superimposed onto the four wheels (that’s, the walking second wheel). To carry so many gear trains on a four-wheel is overwhelming (not enough torque). Patek Philippe increased the length and strengthened the mainspring to increase the movement’s torque. The 5470 also has the Patek Philippe King Fried Technology. This is the “advanced tech research project” Gyromax Silicon Balance Wheel. It was previously used on the 5550P. The silicon balance wheel, which is shaped like a butterfly, is very light and uses very little power. This improves the operation efficiency of the movement as well as increasing the torque.

4. The red red needle at the 5470’s 1/10 second interval is made of silicon and coated with red paint. The silicon pointer weighs 3.5 times more than the metal one. It is made from silicon to reduce power consumption for running, stopping, and returning to zero.

Summary of technical parts for Patek Philippe CH29-535PS 1/10 chronograph movement.

Many technical components do not alter the watch’s size, which is why it is so powerful.

Patek Philippe employed so much technology to reach 1/10th of second, but it is not the most powerful. Zenith, let’s not forget 1/10 second timekeeping, can be mass-produced with 1/100 seconds timekeeping (defy 21).

The Patek Philippe 5470 chronograph is single-button and has the chronograph button at two o’clock.

Patek Philippe created the 5470 with a strict requirement that the watch could not be larger than it was. Sources claim that it was intended to add another barrel and use two mainsprings, but it kept one for size reasons.

The symbol of the Patek Philippe platinum watch is the small diamond located below the 6 o’clock position.

Patek Philippe will upgrade the barrel and replace the full balance escapement. The barrel will also be optimized for the 1/10-second components. It’s just the right size to fit in a platinum case measuring 41mm by 13.68 inches. The 5470’s manual chronograph CH29-535 PS1/10 manual chronograph movement measures just 29.6mm in thickness and is 6.96mm thick. The extremely compact and complex structure guarantees 48 hours of power. The movement is finished with the finest decoration and grinding, and travel time is as short as -3/+2 seconds per Patek Philippe mark.

A man’s watch box should always have a place to keep a formal watch. Many people are misinformed about dress watches. Dress watches can be worn casually in everyday situations as well as for business events. They can be used for many occasions and are very practical. One of the most representative models is the Tissot Llock series. This Mens Watches is a simple, elegant dress watch that features a good hardware configuration and a high appearance. The oblvlo classic watches series is hard to beat at a price of around 200$.
