Footnotes

  • Patek Philippe created the first annual calendar movement in 1996 with the introduction of reference 5035. This revolutionary bit of mechanics offered a mid-tier complication between the ultra-complex perpetual calendar, and the simpler triple calendar.

    Ten years later, in 2006, Patek Philippe launched the timeless 5396G. An instant classic, the design drew strong inspiration from the 3448 and the famed Calatrava aesthetic. The supremely legible, unfussy dial features separate day and month windows at 12 o'clock, with the subsidiary dial and date window at 6 o'clock.

    The white and pink gold variations were first presented in 2006, with slightly altered models appearing in the subsequent years. This model, both modern and classic in appearance, exemplifies Patek Philippe's superior ability to design the most magnificent timepieces while remaining true to the brand's heritage.
