Patek Philippe GENEVE signature at 12 o'clock, case and movement signed.
Patek Philippe initiated the production of this model in 2012 and is still current.
From an aesthetic point of view, the 5123R can be considered as a reinterpretation of the Calatrava ref. 2526 for the following Dauphine hands, the minutes track, the shape of the indexes, they all bring back the purity of the dial of this famous reference. In the watchmaking world, it is very complicated to do it simple. Patek Philippe however doesn't have this kind of problem because its rich history is an inexhaustible source of inspiration and the 2526 constitutes the quintessence of the 3 hands watch.
