Patek Philippe 5146 Annual Calendar, launched in 2005, with its moon-phase and two subdials for day and month. It also provides the convenience of an easy-to-read window date display. The Patek Philippe 5146 Annual Calendar is clearly Patek’s response to the oversize watch trend of recent years. With its predecessor – reference model 5036 being 37mm in diameter, the polished 18 karat yellow gold case of the Ref. 5146 is now 39mm in diameter. While the increase in diameter is just 2mm, 39mm is still a conservative size compared to the serving platter–sized watches currently in vogue.Related Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Replica Watches.
The larger scale provides more space for the added functions found on the dial. A hand-stitched brown alligator strap rests between the 20mm lugs of the Annual Calendar and is connected with a gorgeous and well constructed case-matching fold over clasp, signed Patek Philippe. The case has a water-resistance rating of 25 meters. The well padded and sumptuous leather strap adds greatly to the overall comfort of the piece. In addition to the two-position crown on the right side of the case (pulled out to set the time, pushed in to wind the watch), corrector buttons for controlling the various complications are recessed into the case at 2, 4, 8 and 10.
Beneath the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal of the Annual Calendar is an elegant cream-colored dial that is both elegant and rich in intensity—twelve separate steps are required in the lacquering, firing and polishing processes used to create the dial. A combination of yellow gold baton and Arabic numeral markers encircles the dial. The yellow gold hour and minutes hands are coated with Superluminova and are quite legible in all lighting conditions.
The gold sweep seconds hand is slightly less visible but coordinates well with the rest of the dial. This particular Patek dial imparts a great deal of information above and beyond the standard three-hand display. Beginning at the top of the dial, a power reserve indicator is found just below 12. Continuing clockwise around the dial, the next register, a month indicator, is located right of center and just left of 3. At 6, the dial features a standard date indicator with the moon phase indicator positioned just above it. Finally, the day of the week indicator is located just left of center and to the right of 9.
