This is a beautiful example of a Patek Philippe Grand Complication Perpetual Calendar Ref. 5496-001. This watch has a retrograde flyback date, with a now discontinued dial format.

The watch has the ability to accurately show the day, date, month and moonphase; furthermore, it takes into account long and short months, and even leap years! This feature is achieved by the ingenious engineering of the mechanism, namely placing a wheel within the calendar, which rotates only once every four years.

The ultra-complicated movement, with a total of 361 parts, has a power reserve of 45 hours with 30 working jewels. The Calibre 324 S QR movement is automatically-wound by the visible, full-sized gold weight.

The platinum 39.5 mm case gives a great presence on the wrist. The bright silvered dial has classic baton numerals with day, month and leap year apertures. The stark, almost typical Bauhaus styling of the case and dial, is broken only with the injection of the bright red arrow tip of the date indicator hand. 

This example is complete with the correct Certificate of Origin, dated January 2013, the automatic winding-box with accessories, spare solid platinum back, pusher, swing tickets and all instruction booklets. The watch has its original lightly worn black alligator strap with platinum hidden folding clasp.

Overall, this watch has been worn only very lightly since purchase and it is in fantastic and complete condition.

Viewings can be arranged in Central London by appointment.
