The FirsT se­ries

DA MAN - Caliber - - LEGACY -

The first per­pet­ual cal­en­dar wrist­watch, how­ever, was a one-off spec­i­men. The first se­ries-pro­duced per­pet­ual cal­en­dar time­piece from Patek Philippe was launched in 1941. This model, Ref. 1526, be­came par­tic­u­larly no­table for set­ting the sig­na­ture dial con­fig­u­ra­tions used by later mod­els, with two aper­tures show­ing the day and month in the up­per half of the dial. The lower half, mean­while, is dom­i­nated by the moon phase and date in­di­ca­tor on a sub-dial.

Pow­er­ing the watch is the Cal­iber 12’’’-120 SC move­ment, which re­sides snugly in the 34mm yel­low gold case. The min­utes and hours hands are sim­i­larly in yel­low gold, which con­trasts nicely with the steel sec­onds hand and the sil­ver dial.
