For the first time, Patek Philippe fake offers an annual calendar in a round Calatrava steel case.
By creating an annual calendar in 1996, Patek Philippe has achieved great success in this elegant complication. Previously only used in precious metals, namely gold alloys (yellow, rose or white) or platinum, it can now be made from materials that are more readily available and more versatile. stainless steel. This traditional breakthrough in the complexity of the calendar does not mean any corner. As usual, stainless steel is still a rare material for Patek Philippe… Below is the Patek Philippe 4947A calendar.
Patek Philippe’s patented anniversary calendar was previously only available in gold or platinum, but now it uses a stainless steel Calatrava-style case. The 38mm wide and 11mm high case fits almost all wrists (you can call it neutral if you want) and is completely polished (including the bezel). Despite the classic elegance of the dial, it still exudes a more modern atmosphere when combined with the 5-chain steel bracelet.
The midnight blue dial of the Patek Philippe 4947A calendar is decorated with “Shandong” finishing technology, and the horizontal and vertical satin surfaces are polished. Leaf-shaped hands with a luminous coating indicate the time, enhancing the casual look of this watch. The annual calendar indication is divided into two sub-tables and a date window. The first sub-dial is located at 09:30, indicating the day of the month that the opposite sub-dial displays. The third sub-dial displays the moon phases, and all three sub-dials are decorated with circular patterns. Polishing the Arabic numerals applied in platinum once again brings a more modern approach.
Patek Philippe’s classic Calibre 324 movement is located under the dial, visible through the sapphire back cover. This automatic movement has been used in various other Patek Philippe movements and is equipped with an annual calendar and moon phase modules, thus becoming the 324 S QA LU. This self-winding movement is equipped with a 21k gold rotor with a Calatrava cross engraved on it. It is composed of 328 parts, including 10 bridges and 34 jewels, and its decoration is naturally impeccable.
The frequency of the movement is 4 Hz, which means 28,800 vibrations per hour. The power reserve is stipulated to be between 35 and 45 hours. The movement only needs to be corrected for annual calendar complications once a year. Of course, the movement uses Patek Philippe’s seal, which meets Patek Philippe’s own standards of high quality, precision and finishing.
The Patek Philippe 4947A Annual Calendar uses a one-piece stainless steel five-link bracelet that is completely polished to match the Calatrava-style case.
