There’s something intrinsically elaborate about yearly calendars like the Patek Philippe 5396 white gold annual calendar replica watch. Even though a QP (quantième perpetuel, French for perpetual calendar) is arguably the greatest date complication, the yearly calendar can be implemented in a more visually pure fashion, unencumbered by the need to display this pesky season index. There’s an undeniable allure to an annual calendar, an X factor that seems well-suited to a dressy watch with an old-school appeal. Maybe the annual calendar has less to prove than a QP, with sufficient chill to just allow February be itself… And talking of chill, after yesterday’s Nautilus 40th Anniversary releases, which have caused quite a stir, let us indulge in the tranquil beauty of this quintessentially Patek apparel watch, the mention 5396.
Annual calendars are available in many sizes and shapes, from the stealthy and modern MIH Watch (reviewed ) to old-world illustrations from IWC, A. Lange & Söhne, and naturally, Patek Philippe 5396/1g-010 replica . Even within Patek, they offer something of a disperse, from the youthful 5960 (hands ) into the downright sporty Nautilus 5726 and this decidedly classic Patek Philippe 5396, that can be new for 2016 in both white (5396G-014) and rose gold (5396R-012).
Having a beautiful charcoal gray sunburst dial for your white gold along with a shining silver opaline dial to the rose gold, the Patek Philippe 5396 is tightly packed but provides a welcome dial symmetry, its numerous displays arranged along the vertical centre of the dial. Surrounded with a subtle moment track along with a truly beautiful usage of applied Breguet numerals, the Patek Philippe reference 5396 fake watches draw a line through Patek’s unmatched lineage, nodding to past models such as the 565 and 5370 Split-Seconds.
Together with Calatrava-esque dauphine hands, the Patek Philippe 5396 is legible, detailed, and both the hands and Breguet markers are wonderfully finished, sparkling since they interact with any available light. The in depth sunburst end of the grey dial is difficult to capture in photographs but it makes for a very eye-catching effect . The annual calendar could not be mush easier to read, thanks in part to a typical date display at 6. In person, I did not mind the date screen in any way, but I did find myself wondering why they opted for a 24 hour screen instead of putting the date on the sub dial around the moon phase.
