Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph 5270 is a grand complication Patek that is scheduled to be auctioned off on November 7 2022 at the biannual Children Action Gala. The watch in question is a unique piece of Patek's current flagship perpetual calendar chronograph, 5270 series, cased in titanium with an emerald green sunburst dial.

While it's hard to top the record-breaking Tiffany Blue 5711, the new emerald sunburst dial on the 5270T-010 might even be more attention-grabbing thanks to its eye-popping Soleil finish. It was remarkable how the color transitioned with the light, from a light green tone to a more electric color, and even a saturated look that's almost turquoise or teal in its coloration.
If you're wondering what makes this watch so special, it really boils down to the choice of case metal. Patek Philippe makes very few wristwatches out of lightweight titanium, and the few times they've done so over the years have typically been for charity auctions, such as Only Watch.
There was a Sky Moon Tourbillon in titanium that sold at Sotheby's in 2014, and you might remember that titanium versions of the 5004 and the 5208T-010 each achieved massive prices at Only Watch in 2013 and 2017, respectively. A Patek Calatrava Travel Time 5524 in titanium was also sold to benefit Children Action. But this is the very first time a 5270 will be cased in titanium.
