The updated elements of the AAA replica Patek Philippe Ref. 5172G reference use a new, completely polished surface treatment on the white gold case. The diameter of the case is 41 mm and the thickness is 11.45 mm, which is a bit larger than its predecessor. The circular chronograph button with guilloché decoration; the newly designed three-layer lug; and the newly applied Arabic numerals on the dial and the truncheon pointer with a pointed tip. The hands and numbers are made of platinum like the case, and both have a luminous coating. Above the dial is a curved, retro-style box-shaped sapphire crystal.

The rim of the luxury replica Ref. 5172G Chronograph’s jet black midnight blue dial is connected to a white transfer printing minute timer and a tachymeter dial, and uses a sandblasted central chronograph hand to accumulate 30 minutes on the dial at three o’clock. The running seconds ticked on another sub-division at 9 o’clock. Both sub-zones are outlined with white railway track contour lines.
