Movement detail from the Patek Philippe 5204P
Every Monday, I’ll be posting a new full resolution image that you can zoom into and pan around for yourself.
This week’s “Full Frame” is a mere 80 megapixel shot of the movement of a Patek Philippe 5204 perpetual calendar with split-seconds chronograph. It was taken with my old Phase One IQ3 80 digital back, before I upgraded to the IQ3 100.
I’ve posted some detail cropped macro shots from this image on my Instagram account before, but now for the first time you can zoom into and pan around the entire movement and explore every detail for yourself!
If you are interested in purchasing this watch, please don’t hesitate to contact K2 Luxury, who were gracious enough to loan me the watch to shoot. You can also follow them on their Instagram account here – they do get some rather stunning pieces, and I’m very lucky to be able to occasionally photograph some of them.
Use the icons in the image below to go full screen, and then zoom into and out of the image.
Final #macromonday post for this week. The #PatekPhilippe 5204.
One more for #macromonday. The split-seconds chronograph hands of the #PatekPhilippe #5204P as you’ve probably never seen them before. Well, I posted a wider shot of this a while back, but I thought it would be fun to share the full level of detail 🙂 #macro #horology #Patek
Just realised I’ve yet to share a detail shot from the dial side of the #PatekPhilippe #5204P. So for #macromonday today, I’ll post a couple. Here’s the thing I’m not a fan of on pretty much all Patek perpetual chronos since the 3970. I just cannot wrap my head around why Patek don’t make all the date numbers in the same sized font as the 5 and 27. Then those two wouldn’t stick out like a sore thumb, and there would be no need for a “chin”, or for the dates to eat into the minutes track. Would be interested to know my followers thoughts on this! #macro
For the second of today’s three shots of Patek Philippes, here’s another angle on the #5204P, available from @k2luxurywatches. #PatekPhilippe #Patek
Here’s that #macro detail of the #PatekPhilippe #5204P that I promised earlier. #macromonday
#PatekPhilippe #5204P-001. Shot from a different angle. Multi-image focus stack parallel to the movement. Note how the end of the deployment clasp is also in focus, because the focal plane is tilted. Detail from this shot coming next. #macromonday
Here’s a full 80 megapixel frame of the movement of the #PatekPhilippe #5204 that the previously posted crops were taken from. #macromonday #macro
So. If you ever wondered just where all that extra cost goes when you move up from a Perpetual Chronograph such as the #PatekPhilippe #5270 (last set), to a Perpetual split-seconds Chronograph such as the #Patek Philippe #5204 (this set) , just compare these two sets of 3×1 panoramic posts! Pop over to my profile for the full comparison. #macro (3/3)
