A hint of mother-of-pearl, a soupçon of gold, a smattering of diamonds… Patek Philippe brings a swathe of softness to its famous annual calendar. A visual enchantment that contains a wealth of technique.

One of Patek Philippe’s most iconic complications lends itself to a precious and refined version for women. The generously sized pink gold case has been redesigned with more pronounced curves to accentuate its feminine nature. The annual calendar was invented by Patek Philippe and displays the day, date and month all year long, requiring just one manual correction on March 1st. This Annual Calendar Ref. 4948 also features a moonphase display. All these indications are set against a dial in white Balinese mother-of-pearl, surrounded by applied Arabic numerals in gold. The timeless elegance of its design, the 374 pure diamonds adorning the bezel, case, lugs, crown and buckle, and the enduring value of a Patek Philippe complicated watch transform this jewel of watchmaking aesthetic and technique into a precious object whose fresh charm will continue to delight generations to come.
