Self-winding

The patented annual calendar was launched in 1996 and has been a success story for the past 20 years. Indicating the day of the week, the date and the month, and requiring correction only once a year, this ingenious mechanism has emerged as one of Patek Philippe’s flagship models. It offers a choice of different displays and nuances of style, always combining elegant lines, noble materials and lavish attention to finish.

A disc, decorated with golden stars and two golden moons against a blue or white background representing the sky, rotates within an aperture. The disc is cut from a wafer of corundum crystal (sapphire).

Gold was condensed onto the disc by means of a vacuum process through a photographic mask to create the shape of the moons and stars.  The aperture is cut at its upper edge in order to represent the lunar cycle.

During the first days of each lunation, the leading edge of a golden moon becomes visible as a crescent on the left of the aperture and appears to wax as it emerges beyond the curved edge of the aperture representing the lunar terminator.

Half way through the lunation, the moon appears full. It then wanes as it disappears behind the terminator on the right of the aperture.

As the moon vanishes, the second moon on the disc is ready to appear on the left.

Sunburst: a brush with metal bristles is used with the abrasive paste to create rays spreading from the center to the edges of the dial. This requires an infinitely steady hand. When the completed dial pivots on its axis, it will reveal a glorious sunburst effect
