The perpetual rolex replica calendar is one of the rarest and most desirable complications to have in a watch, and few can claim as mastery of this complication as Patek Philippe can. After all, Patek Philippe introduced the world's first perpetual calendar wristwatch way back in 1925. And if that wasn't enough, they even invented the annual calendar just 20 years ago - but we're digressing. The complication that interests us today is the perpetual calendar, and for 2016 we see the Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar 5496P-015 in platinum.
The reference 5496 was first introduced in 2011 and is one of six perpetual calendar-only references by Patek Philippe - the others being the 5139, 5140, 5940, 5159 and 5160. other perpetual calendar pieces since most people are used to seeing perpetual calendars with three sub-dials. In fact, you enter "perpetual calendar clock" in Google Images and simply count them the number of results that have the most typical arrangement of three sub-dials. Three replica watches uk sub-dials or fewer, the Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar 5496 watch displays the day, month, date and leap year like any perpetual calendar watch.
You can see the month and day with two openings at 3 and 9, respectively. The date is indicated by a retrograde display inside the dial. A leap year indicator at 12 o'clock and a moon phase indicator at 6 o'clock complete the look of the dial. It is a rather unusual compositional configuration as far as perpetual calendars are concerned, but it is very readable. I actually find it easier to read than the traditional three sub quadrant configuration.
