Patek Philippe pays homage to their great perpetual calendars of the past with the reference 5396. The arrangement of the calendar displays on the dial is very classic. Yet, the 5396 is modern, incorporating all of Patek’s mechanical innovations and in a modern size 38.5mm case. This watch is a home run.
Inspired by Patek perpetual calendars of yesteryear, the dial features central sweep seconds, silvered finishing, almost white, with dauphine hands. The day and month are shown in the dual windows below “Patek Philippe Geneve”, while the moonphase and 24 hour time are displayed in the 6 o’clock subdial. The date is shown in the window at the bottom of the dial. You need to loupe this dial to appreciate the rich details and the amazing design and finish. The embossed white gold minutes chapter is just amazing looking.
The case is 18k white gold with dimensions of 38.5mm diameter by 11.8mm thick. Sapphire front and display back crystals.
