  • Catalogue Essay

    -Released in 2021, the Patek Philippe annual calendar reference 4947/1A is a casually elegant calendar timepiece perfect for most, if not all occasions.

    -Cased in stainless steel at 38mm in diameter, the timepiece is further paired with a matching five-row bracelet. The denim-esque blue dial features a stunning “shantung finish”, a type of silk plain weave fabric finish that showcases both horizontal and vertical patterns. The dial showcases three sunken subdials indicating the day, month, and moon phase, at 6 o'clock a date aperture is present.

    -Inside the timepiece is made alive thanks to the caliber 324S QA LU, which is fitted with Patek Philippe's Gyromax system and Silinvar hairspring.

    -Preserved in virtually unworn condition, the present Patek Philippe annual calendar reference 4947/1A is further accompanied by its full set of accessories.

  • Artist Biography

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
