As previously referenced, the first generation Patek Philippe Annual Calendar ref. 5035 made its presentation in 1996. Accessible in yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, and platinum, the Patek 5035 sports a 37mm round case with a smooth stepped bezel. As expected, these dressier Patek watches come fitted with exquisite leather straps.
The dials (accessible in dark, white, silver – or in uncommon cases, blue or salmon) of the Annual Calendar 5035 pack plenty of information. At the middle are the luminescent leaf-shaped hands that sweep around the dial, pointing to the luminescent Roman numerals. At that point there’s the threesome of sub-dials to indicate the month, 24-hour time, and day. At last, there’s a discreet date window placed at 6 o’clock.
As with most current Patek Philippe watches, the back is fitted with sapphire crystal for a reasonable perspective on the development inside. In this case, the motor is the automatic Caliber 315/198, which offers users a power reserve of about 40 – 45 hours.
