Marking the first annual calendar in the Aquanaut collection, the new 1:1 fake Patek Philippe Ref. 5261 is a thoroughbred Patek Philippe product.

Using the signature grenade pattern on the dial as the background, the calendar functions are intuitively displayed in two horizontal sub-dials (months at 9 and weekdays at 3 o’clock) and a date aperture at 6 o’clock.
However, this display is not like other aaa quality fake Patek Philippe annual calendars. This is because the annual calendar module inside the movement has been inverted, meaning the moon phases now appear at noon and the date at 6 o’clock. Legibility is impeccable thanks to the generous amounts of Super-LumiNova applied to rose gold hands and numerals and the 5-minute plots on the peripheral track.
