The retail price for the new Swiss fake Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5226G: SGD 51,500 inclusive of GST
A new UK luxury replica Patek Philippe Calatrava is often a celebrated welcome to the collection. Last year, Patek introduced the Ref. 6119 which is a phenomenal success as it brought back the Clou de Paris bezel to the collection. This year, the new top fake Patek Philippe Calatrava is in white gold, but with the self winding Caliber 26-330 SC which has sweep seconds, date and hackking seconds.
The main difference to the Caliber 30-255PS used in the Ref. 6119 is this movement has a date mechanism, and the seconds hand is a centrally mounted sweep hand instead of a subsidiary seconds in a sub-dial at 6 o’clock. The price of the 1:1 fake Patek Philippe has increased somewhat with this change, and it is now priced at SGD 51.5k compared to the SGD 40.6k (up since our review from SGD 39k.
But the movement is not all that’s new. The dial of the Swiss made fake Patek Philippe is now a textured dial, made at the press and a dégradé gradient from charcoal grey to black at the rim. The hands are a less classical, but perhaps more contemporary syringe shaped with lume coating, while the Ref.6119’s hands were very classical Dauphine shaped with no lume.
And of course the Clous de Paris pattern which is engraved on the case side. This high quality replica Patek Philippe‘s new design sees the lugs as extensions and integral to the case back bezel. The case is a “just right” 40mm, a smidge above the 39mm on the Ref.6119.
Both these features are also applied to the new cheap fake Patek Philippe Ref. 5326G Annual Calendar Time, and we see these two watches as elder and younger siblings. The 5326, of course has the extremely useful combination of the annual calendar in concert with luxury copy Patek Philippe’s brilliant two timezone execution, and the 5226 is time only, with date. And as we remarked in our commentary on the 5320, the look is decided more contemporary (even though the inspiration is from vintage cameras), and perhaps targeted at a younger demographic than the traditional Patek clientele. Though, in truth, the design is probably ageless and appreciated by children of all ages.
