Finally, a Nice Looking Annual Calendar from Patek Philippe - The ref. 5146
Blog readers warning - Opinion ahead......! Yes, finally Patek Philippe have produced a decent looking annual calendar! If you're not a fan of their Roman numeral effort (and I'm not going to waste my webspace reproducing it here if you don't know it....check out the microsite yourself for a comparison) then you'll be pleased to know they've got round to a semi-Arabic version. Actually it looks like it could have been a Jaeger LeCoultre design. LOL!
Funnily sometimes their Roman numeral versions can work e.g. the old 5038, but for me the whole series to date has been awful - well maybe with exception of the 5056P. Of course some reaction to this new 5146 has been poor (Roman numeral lovers), but hey, at least there is the choice now.
