It’s a leap year, and in the run-up to that special day Feb 29, Revolution takes a look at some of the Perpetual Calendars that mattered. Here, we turn the spotlight on the Patek Philippe ref. 1591, a sporty perpetual calendar in waterproof stainless steel case and lumed hands:

In 1944, Patek Philippe created what is my single favorite perpetual calendar watch ever made. The reference 1591 was a highly audacious timepiece in that it combined the elegant functionality and technical innovation related to the perpetual calendar with a waterproof case, luminous hands and dial.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
