There’s been a lot said about the new Patek Philippe Ref. 5212A Calatrava Weekly Calendar fake watch, mostly about the new eponymous complication, that it’s a new steel model, and of course, that handwritten font used on the dial.
The Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica has long been seen as the quintessential dress watch, and the brand’s creative risk-taking here is one that will result in a piece that collectors will clamor over for years to come.
The point of inspiration is subtle since the differences in size, material, and level of complication are substantial. However, the Patek Philippe Replica 5212A has two-tiered lugs and a two-tiered case, which is absolutely reminiscent of the 2512.
On the dial, you can easily draw a line between the baton-shaped hour indices, elongated triangular Dauphine hour, and minute hands on both watches. Finally, that beautiful box crystal is so reminiscent of that classic vintage Fake Patek Philippe Watches look that’s achieved with the visual cues from the case design.
