Technological developments don’t occur in a linear fashion. This watch is the perfect example. While the perpetual calendar was invented by Thomas Mudge in 1762, it took more than 250 years for Patek Philippe to invent the annual calendar complication used in this ref. 5205.The first annual calendar, the ref. 5035, was introduced by Patek in 1996. Sporting a day, date, and month function, the watch can distinguish between months that are 30 and 31 days in length. As a result, you only have to manually adjust the watch once a year, at the end of February.This ref. 5205R is a post-modern interpretation of the annual calendar watch. Housed in a large 40 mm 18k rose gold case, it definitely isn’t your grandfather’s dress watch. The watch features a bold concave polished bezel and lovely pierced lugs. A sapphire see-through case back gives full view to the expertly finished automatic movement with a 21k yellow gold rotorThe large white dial has a contemporary and dynamic look. Three large apertures at the 11, 12, and 1 o’clock positions display the day, date, and month functions, while a 24-hour indicator and moonphase complication are shown in a large sub-dial one the bottom half of the dial. These details match well with the inclusion of long applied 18k rose gold baton markers and bold rose gold dauphine hands.This 5205R dates back to 2013, is in unworn condition, and comes as full set with the original box and papers. The watch comes on a chocolate brown alligator leather Patek strap with an 18k rose gold Patek ardillon buckle.
