Although alternative precious metal and dial combinations exist for the 5227, Patek Philippe took it upon itself to add yet another by introducing the Patek Philippe Calatrava Date replica 5227G-010 with a stark, black face and a white gold case. Like other variations, the design is easy on the eyes and telling time is a breeze, as it should be for any dress watch. A date aperture located at the three o’clock position is nothing out of the ordinary, either—and why should it be, given that the 5227 is a traditional timepiece meant to fly under the radar and quietly radiate superb quality?

As expected, carried over is the 39mm case best fake Patek Philippe, equipped with a hinged dust cover that can be lifted to view the movement through a sapphire exhibition back. Like other 5227 models, the 5227G-010 is powered by automatic caliber 324 SC, which displays traditional high-end finishing techniques like Geneva striping, perlage, and anglage. Perhaps most impressive, though, is the movement’s 3.3mm height, which allows for a 9.24mm thickness as a complete package. By no means is this exceptionally thin like a Piaget, but the profile is elegant enough to exude classiness and, again, radiate quality. A solid-gold rotor, along with a 45-hour power reserve, are like icing on the proverbial cake.
