After having manufactured the first ever wristwatch with Jewish Calendar – The Hebraïka, ANDERSEN Genève created in 1996 the “Perpetual Secular Calendar”. It was the first 100% perpetual calendar Horological Wristwatch Calendar programmed for 400 years – or even 800.This watch has been adorned by watch collectors worldwide. To celebrate its 20th Anniversary ANDERSEN Genève adds one more complication and presents the ANDERSEN Genève – “Perpetual Secular Calendar” 20th Anniversary Project. Only 20 “bespoke” watches will be manufactured.
Introduced in 1996, the ANDERSEN Genève’s “Perpetual Secular Calendar” Wristwatch was the first, hundred percent, perpetual calendar wristwatch.To celebrate the 20th anniversary (1996-2016) of this iconic watch ANDERSEN Genève adds one more complication to the “Perpetual Secular Calendar”:The seven days of the week will be displayed on the dial.
The Latin names of planets were simple translations of the Greek names, which in turn were translations of the Babylonian names, which go back to the Sumerians. The 1st day in Latin is named after the Sun (Solis dies), but Christians also consider the Lord's Day (Dominicus dies), as in Greek.

Days, Date, Months and Leap Years indication over 400 years without settings
Four years' program for the leap year cycle: a wheel with 48 teeth = 4 x 12 months, thus every 4 year, the 29th February appears. This wheel pushes a reduction wheel one tooth forward every 4years. The reduction wheel divides the turning speed into two and hereby the secular wheel of50 teeth is activated and moves on for one tooth every 8 years, e.g. 50 x 8 = 400Thus, the secular wheel turns once in 400 years and is programmed for the secular years: 2000 (with 29 Feb.), 2100 (28 Feb.), 2200 (28 Feb.), 2300 (28 Feb.) and 2400 (29Feb.)
