The calibre movement of this timepiece compensates for the various lengths of each month from March 1 to the end of February, necessitating only one adjustment a year. It is rhodium-plated with fausses côtes embellishment, and the stamp of the Seal of Geneva quality mark, a straight-line lever escapement, balance spring Spiromax, and the patented Gyromax balance that adjusts for cold, heat, isochronism, and for five positions.
It has a shock absorber, a 21K gold rotor, and a self-compensating flat balance spring. Vibrations/hour: 28 800 (4 Hz)
Case, movement, and dial are signed.
Patek Philippe designed this case after its famous Calatrava ref. 96 from 1932. This model pays tribute to the 20th anniversary of Patek Philippe's patented Annual Calendar.
