Swiss watch brand Pierre DeRoche has dropped a simplified annual calendar based on a childhood memory from its co-founder.

The GrandCliff Annual Calendar features a series of twelve cut-outs on its dial indicating the month by means of a rotating red disc underneath the dial, while a date window sits at the three o’clock position.

“When I was a kid my grandfather taught me that to remember the months with 30 and 31 days,” says Pierre DeRoche co-founder, Carole Dubois. “I only had to look at the troughs and ridges on the backs of my hands. It was from this simple answer to a complex question that the idea for the GrandCliff Annual Calendar was derived.”

The mechanical solution was achieved by module specialist, Dubois Dépraz, which is owned by the same family as Pierre DeRoche. The module includes crown-based quick date correction and quick month correction using a corrector.

The annual calendar complication keeps track of the date mechanically, needing adjustment once every year on March 1st and was invented by Patek Philippe in 1996.

The 41mm GrandCliff Annual Calendar features a texture black gradient dial with appliqué indices and is available now via Pierre DeRoche, priced CHF 8,700 (approximately $9,400 USD).
