This is not a total first for Patek Philippe, but it had been awhile since they released a left-hand watch, which are also known as “destro”. Its essentially the Patek ref#: 5372, but with the pushers and crown on the opposite side, plus a new color scheme. Although it doesn’t have a limited edition status, the brand does state on their website that “It is a highly exclusive timepiece crafted in small series for left-handers and connoisseurs of choice rarities.”The 38.3mm case is made of 950 platinum with a mix of satin-brushed casebands and polished surface finish.On the flipside is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. Although the user does have the option to exchange this for a solid platinum caseback that comes included with the watch. Housed inside is the thinnest split-seconds chronograph movement with a perpetual calendar ever built with a height of just 7.3 mm.It features a crown with an integrated chronograph monopusher and split-seconds pusher, all on the left-side of the case. While on the right-side are two very discreet push pieces that allow us to reset the perpetual calendar. Water-resistance can reach up to 30 meters (98 feet).Time is exhibited on an 18k gold plate with charcoal colored gray background, accompanied by gold applied Arabic numerals, while circling around the flange is a 60-minute scale with numerals for every 5-minute increment. Just like the other latest Patek releases, this dial also has a black-gradient effect that becomes more prominent as it reaches the rim.There are three snailed ebony sub-dials: a small seconds at 3 o’clock with aperture for day, a 60-minute counter at 9 o’clock with aperture for month, and the date at 12 o’clock. On the upper-half of the dial we still have two small white dots that serve as a day/night indicator at 1:30 and a leap year indicator at 10:30. Then last but not least this very complicated watch includes a moon phase at 6 o’clock on the lower-half of the dial.The 18k white gold dauphine style central hour/minute hands are easily told apart from the much thinner red lacquered chronograph and split-seconds hands. This color scheme also continues onto the strap for a sporty and cohesive look.
