  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe introduced their patented annual calendar complication in 1996 with a new mechanism that took into account the different lengths of the months and required only one annual adjustment in February. The legibility of the calendar functions were made easy thanks to the month and day that were indicated via two apertures at 12 o’clock with the date, moon phases and 24 hours indication elegantly placed on the lower half of the dial. While the perpetual calendar is a complex and high-cost complication, the annual calendar is more accessible and became a strong seller for the brand. Since its introduction 24 years ago, Patek Philippe has added it to a variety of models, and in 2010, offered it for the first time in the iconic Nautilus with the reference 5726.

    The present example is offered at auction by the original owner, and housed in the immediately recognizable case designed by Gerald Genta with a 40.5 millimeter diameter. Its condition is superb - hardly ever-worn, and complete with box, certificate and accessories. The reference 5726 is a wonderful marriage of sportive luxury and high complication – certain to excite the discerning collector.

    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.
