There's something intrinsically ornate about annual calendars such as the Patek Philippe Aquanaut replica. While a QP (quantieme perpetuel, French for perpetual calendar) is perhaps the best date complication, the annual calendar could be performed inside a more aesthetically pure fashion, unencumbered by the necessity to display that annoying year indicator. There's an indisputable attract a yearly calendar, an X component that appears well-suitable for a dressy watch by having an old-school charm. Most likely the annual calendar has less to demonstrate than the usual QP, getting enough chill to simply let Feb be itself. And talking about chill, after yesterday's Nautilus 40th Anniversary releases, that have caused a significant stir, let's now enjoy the tranquil great thing about this quintessentially Patek dress watch.

These "wrong-only-once-a-year" annual calendars are a good illustration of precisely how now this complication suits a wrist watch of minimal modernity. The Patek Philippe Aquanaut replica measures 38.5mm wide on the matte black alligator strap for that white-colored gold or perhaps a brown alligator for that rose gold version. Water-resistant to 30m and fitted with azure crystals back and front, the Patek Philippe 5396 feels really special. Just like a Patek should, I guess.

On wrist, the Patek Philippe Aquanaut replica sits low and, because of its reserved situation sizing, I found it quite comfortable. To my eyes, within the white-colored gold,this can be a really beautiful dress watch having a classic appeal and merely enough complication to trap the attention and lure the enthusiast.
