In 1996 Patek Philippe were awarded a swiss patent for a new type of calendar indication, the “Annual Calendar”. This new complication indicates 30 and 31 of each month and only has to be reset on the 28th or 29th of February each year. The first wrist watch to carry this new mechanism was the ref 5035 “Annual calendar”. Now dsicontinued, this new model paved the way for many future models and a Patek Philippe design that has grown in to one of the companies most iconic designs. Based on the Gondolo design, this particular model of Annual Calendar is the very fine and rare Gondolo Calendario ref 5135. Now discontinued, it is made in an all Platinum square cushion shaped case with signature round brilliant diamond between the lugs. Held on a genuine black alligator strap with matching Platinum pin buckle. Fitted with the highly complicated and decorated Manufacture calibre 324 S QA LU 24H mechanical self-winding movement. Features include Annual Calendar, day, date, month, moon phase and 24-hour indicator. Slate grey dial with applied gold markers and diamonds. Finished with a sapphire crystal glass and case back.
