Description

Renowned for their groundbreaking innovations in watchmaking, Patek Philippe holds an indisputable position as one of the most esteemed watchmakers to ever grace the industry. Central to their array of complications is the iconic annual calendar, a balance between the complex perpetual calendar and the triple calendar. The inaugural model, the ref. 5035, debuted in 1996, marking Patek Philippe's recognition of the need for an intermediate calendar. The watch we have here, however, is a modern interpretation of the ref. 5035, the Annual Calendar ref. 5396 which was debuted in 2006. Made of 18kt rose gold, the ref. 5396R features a 38.5mm x 11.2mm Calatrava-style case and a polished bezel that exudes understated elegance and sits comfortably on the wrist. Notable for its symmetrical dial layout in sunburst brown, on which this example also features with the illusive Tiffany & Co. stamp, the ref. 5396R features day and month apertures at 12 o’clock, a central time display, a sub-dial with moon-phase and 24-hour indicator, and a perfectly positioned date window at 6 o'clock. Its overarching design echoes the classic ref. 3448 from the 1960s, showcasing a timeless and elegant aesthetic. This Patek Philippe ref. 5396R-001 Annual Calendar emerges as a compelling modern dress watch, combining simplicity, mechanical complexity, and classic appeal in perfect harmony. THE DIAL Designed in perfect balance and harmony, the ref. 5396R features a brown sunburst dial that is completely symmetrical, which underscores how complex its automatic movement is, while also perfectly matching its rose gold construction. Additionally, this example feature the incredible rare Tiffany & Co. stamp which designates this piece as a watch that was originally sold to a VIP through Tiffany's AD network. THE CONSTRUCTION Purposefully designed as an understated timepiece, the ref. 5396R features a Calatrava-style case with the collection's signature flat bezel and small crown that allow it to sit on the wrist just like how a traditional time-only dress watch should. Additionally, this example is offered on a bracelet instead of the usual leather strap, adding to its heft and wrist presence.
