Patek Philippe Ref. 5396 Annual Calendar

In order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first annual calendar which launched in 1996, Patek Philippe has created 2 new dial variations which will be available in two different precious metal cases.Patek Philippe Ref. 5396 Annual Calendar
For this configuration of annual calendar, the day and the month are visible through two apertures located at top half of the dial under the printing of Patek Philippe.  At the 6 o’clock position is the 24hr indicator which doubles as the day/night indicator. Located in the top half of the 24hr indicator is the moonphase and at the bottom is the aperture which shows the date.Patek Philippe Ref. 5396 Annual Calendar  02

Rhodiumed bridges with Geneva striping, round-chamfered edges and gold-filled engravings, a large rotor in 18K yellow gold with an engraved Calatrava cross, Geneva circular graining, perlage in the center, beveled flanks with Geneva snailing (colimaçons), and gleaming red bearing jewels.
