The story of Patek Philippe’s patented annual calendar starts with the reference 5035 in 1996. Designed to appeal to a new generation of watch-lovers, the mechanism offered a more accessible, innovative and user-friendly complication as opposed to the sophisticated Grand Complication perpetual calendar. Being an instant hit, the watch is welcomed by many at its launch due to its versatility. Fast forward to 2005 where the present reference 5146 is the successor of the 5035 with some significant upgrades. The case diameter was increased to 39 mm which wears beautifully on the wrist. With the addition of moon phases and power reserve indication, the signature is located above the date window at 6 o’clock, modernizing the design with pure elegance.
