  • Catalogue Essay

    Throughout their long and prestigious history, Patek Philippe has been at the forefront of technological innovations in watchmaking. In 1996, they launched their first annual calendar wristwatch – and the world’s first self-winding annual calendar, the reference 5035 with an all-new movement. Unlike standard calendar watches, which require adjustment at the end of each month with fewer than 31 days, or the more expensive and complicated perpetual calendar timepiece that automatically adjusts the calendar each month, the annual calendar needs adjustment only once per year in February. Since its introduction, the annual calendar has become a mainstay within the Patek Philippe line, and today is offered in several configurations, such as an annual calendar time only model and an annual calendar with flyback chronograph.

    The reference 5396R was released in 2006 in pink gold with obvious inspiration taken from the historic Calatrava models, while the dial resembles the iconic reference 3448 - except this modern watch features a date aperture and adds a 24 hour indication at 6 o’clock. The Calatrava-style case harkens back to one of their best known and iconic designs, the references 96 and 570. The modern case is large, clean and classic, and also used for the time only with date model, the reference 5296 also released in 2006.

    The present example, made in 2011 is fresh to the market and offered by its original owner, and remains factory sealed since it was purchased in 2011.

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.
