In 1996 Patek Philippe were the first manufacture ever to produce an Annual Calendar time-piece. Requiring only a single date adjustment at the end of February, the displayed date is always correct throughout the year, irrespective of whether the month contains 30 or 31 days. For this patented and innovative breakthrough in watch-making, Patek Philippe won Swiss Watchmaker of the Year for 1996 and, with variations, its Annual Calendar has remained in production ever since.
Rightly regarded as one of Patek Philippe’s flagship models, the beautiful movement of this Annual Calendar is signed with the Geneva seal and can be viewed through the sapphire-glass caseback. With a diameter of 37mm, this luxurious white gold wrist-watch makes a really special statement in any formal or informal setting.
