No 6300G-010 Grandmaster Chime for me. I don’t want the most expensive watch in the best fake Patek Philippe catalog. I want a Patek that I have already tried out — even if it was just briefly — and that felt and looked right on my wrist. And that’s why I go back in my memory to last year’s Watches and Wonders. After visiting the perfect replica Patek Philippe booth, I was on a horological cloud nine. I saw and tried out a plethora of classic and contemporary creations that oozed class, heritage, and craftsmanship. Two Swiss made fake watches come back to my mind and fight for dominance.
The first one is the best 1:1 fake Patek Philippe 5172G Chronograph with its salmon dial on the front and its exquisitely finished hand-wound caliber in the back. The little dots on the dial aren’t why I didn’t pick this stunning chronograph; I think the dots add character and visual drama. In the end, the AAA quality replica Patek Philippe 5270P-014 Perpetual Calendar Chrono — last year’s introduction price was €189,500 — and its mesmerizing green lacquered dial with a black-gradient rim and gold applied hour markers hit me a bit harder. It’s a traditional Patek Philippe copy online with a funky touch.
The 5270P-014 is a contemporary classic
Who would have guessed? The high quality replica Patek Philippe 5270P-014 is very comfortable and easy to wear on the wrist. The watch’s 41 × 12.4mm dimensions are pretty much perfect, and the weight of the platinum brings forth a very luxurious sensation.
I wrote earlier that “going hands-on with the green-dialed Swiss movement fake Patek Philippe 5270P-014 perpetual calendar chronograph is like going to see the Berliner Philharmoniker expecting them to play a Beethoven symphony, but hearing the orchestra perform deep house instead.” The top super clone Patek Philippe 5270 has been around since 2011 in many iterations, but the 2022 version in green is by far the most contemporary one so far. And it’s the mix of tradition and modernity that does it for me.
