Mark the poetic passage of time as the moon makes its way across the Milky Way. Featuring a finely textured cream-coloured dial surrounded by 66 diamonds, or a spiral patterned mother-of pearl dial with 273 graduated diamonds, both these Moon Phases are equipped with the manual- wind Caliber 215 PS LU.

Featuring a 24-hour and day/night indication for all 24 time zones, these are watches no sophisticated global traveller should do without. The automatic Caliber 240 HU drives both these World Time watches. A clean, elegant guilloché dial and 62 diamond bezel finish them to perfection.

With the ability to take into account the varying lengths of each month including leap years (the next time you’ll need to adjust it is in 2100), it’s no wonder Perpetual Calendars are horology’s most revered and coveted grand complication. Equipped with the ultra-thin mechanical self-winding Caliber 240 Q, these by Patek Philippe rise above and beyond the usual fanfare.

Last year saw the 20th anniversary of the Annual Calendar, a complication that Patek Philippe introduced when it unveiled the reference 5035 in 1996. Requiring an adjustment just once every year, both these timepieces bear an automatic Caliber 324 S QA LU beneath a Shantung silk décor inspired dial (for the white gold version) and Balinese mother-of-pearl dial (rose gold version).
