Patek Philippe presents the ‘Annual Calendar Travel Time’ watch

Geneva—Of the 12 new timepieces that Patek Philippe debuted at Watches & Wonders Geneva, one represents its greatest technical innovation.

The new Ref. 5326G-001 Travel Time Annual Calendar marks the first time that Patek Philippe has combined two specific complications.

The Ref. 5326G-001 Travel Time Annual Calendar comes with two leather straps, beige and black.

The result is the self-winding caliber 31-260 PS QA LU FUS 24H, featuring an annual calendar, which requires manual correction once a year, and the travel time system which displays a second time zone.

The caliber has eight patents.

The annual calendar mechanism was invented and patented in 1996. It displays the day, month and date in the apertures.

The skeleton hand indicates home time and the solid hour hand indicates local time. There is a day and night indication for both time zones.

The Annual Calendar Travel Time uses the white gold Calatrava case with a textured charcoal gray dial with a gradient black edge. The 41mm timepiece comes with two beige and black calf leather straps.

It is priced at $76,882.

There is another novelty in the Calatrava collection: the Ref. 5226G-001.

Like the annual calendar time travel, it has a “Clous de Paris” guilloché pattern, or clove, on the caseband. The motif was reintroduced in 2021 on the Calatrava Clous de Paris Ref. 619.

The 5226G is powered by the caliber 26-330 SC self-winding movement.

Its similarities to the Time Travel annual calendar don’t end with the vintage-inspired caseback. It also has a gray dial with a gradient black edge and comes with the same beige nubuck leather and embossed black straps.

Considerably smaller, the 27mm watch sells for $39,033.
