Introduced in 1996, the Copy Patek Philippe Watches annual calendar has had a stellar run, becoming of the brand’s bestsellers. Thanks to its modular construction, the annual calendar mechanism has been fitted to a variety of base movements, but its most classic form is arguably the window-type display found on the various versions of the ref. 5396.
The dial on the white gold model is a medium grey with a metallic, sun-ray brushed finish, giving it a restrained appearance. While the dial disc is brass, the applied numerals and spherical minute markers are 18k white gold Replica Men Watches, as are the hands. The 24-hour indicator at six o’clock sits on a crisply recessed track that gives the entire dial a bit of depth.

Dials aside, both are identical to earlier versions of the ref. 5396. Typical of a Patek Philippe Iced Out, the case is streamlined and elegant, being 38.5mm wide and a slim 11.2mm high.
