  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe introduced their first annual calendar model in 1996 with the reference 5035. Prior to then, mechanical watches indicating the day, date, and month were either a simple triple calendar - necessitating a correction at the end of each non-31-days-long month - or a perpetual calendar. After years of research, Patek Philippe patented and launched with reference 5035 the hybrid annual calendar, necessitating only one correction per year, at the end of February. The complication went on to become a staple of Patek Philippe’s production and is today employed in a variety of timepieces. The reference 4936 wristwatch, launched in 2005, was the first annual calendar wristwatch designed specifically for women by Patek Philippe. The dial is made of shimmering mother-of-pearl and fitted with applied white gold Roman numerals, an aperture for the date, and subsidiary dials for day, month, and moon phase.

    The present wristwatch is finely crafted with a diamond-set bezel, and crown. It has a modern appeal with a 36.5mm diameter case, yet the gem-set work and mother-of-pearl dial gives the watch a refined, feminine touch.
