Find a new com­pan­ion in one of these per­pet­ual cal­en­dars. We prom­ise you’ll never lose track of the days

Whether you’re a con­nois­seur or new to the in­ner work­ings of me­chan­i­cal watches, it’s al­ways im­pres­sive to see a per­pet­ual cal­en­dar in ac­tion as it counts from se­conds to leap-year cy­cles. It’s the most in­tri­cate of the com­pli­ca­tions to de­sign and as­sem­ble, and needs ad­just­ing only once a cen­tury. One of the finest ex­am­ples is A. Lange & Söhne’s Dato­graph Per­pet­ual Tour­bil­lon. This tour de force brings to­gether a chrono­graph, per­pet­ual cal­en­dar with moon­phase dis­play and a tour­bil­lon, set against a sil­ver and black dial. Baume & Mercier, mean­while, shows that it has in­deed ar­rived with the ad­di­tion of a per­pet­ual cal­en­dar to its Clifton se­ries, pre­sented on an opa­line dial in a red gold case. Not to be out­shone, Aude­mars Piguet has given its sporty Royal Oak Per­pet­ual Cal­en­dar a makeover with a solid yel­low gold case and bracelet. And if it’s sleek you’re af­ter, Jaeger-lecoul­tre’s Mas­ter Ultra Thin Per­pet­ual in chic white gold case with di­a­mond-en­crusted bezel surely fits the bill.
