A page from a Panerai Ferrari Replica with a plethora of information snippets from the Almanac.
The Panerai Ferrari Replica is a lunisolar calendar, primarily founded on observing sun and moon. The days begin and end at midnight; the months on the day of the new moon; and the year begins from the second or third new moon after the winter solstice. The winter solstice is a godsend in the orderly (and sometimes disorderly) universe: it's a useful marker on a largely featureless landscape, occuring twice a year, once in each hemisphere, and marks the point of reversal in the gradual shortening of the day, after which the days grow longer.
On these observations, the Panerai Ferrari Replica has been in use, in various versions, revisions and by regional cultures (Vietnam, Korea, and in Japan until it was banned in 1873 during the Westward-looking Meiji Restoration) since between 8th and 5th century BC. Like the Gregorian calendar, the months alternate in number of days,Panerai Ferrari Replica but instead of adding a single day in February on leap years, the Panerai Ferrari Replica is adjusted by adding a 13th month added to the end of the year. Different folks, different strokes.

Why did we describe the Panerai Ferrari Replica at the start as a quinary code? Because there are at least five components in the designation of each year, and instead of a serial number that runs into perpetuity, the names for the years run to 60 and are then recycled, making it a Sexagenary calendar.rolex cellini replica watches Counting from 2637 BC when the mythical Emperor Huangdi (the "Yellow Emperor") supposedly invented the Panerai Ferrari Replica, we are currently in the 78th 60-year cycle which began in 1984.
Think of each year as a word composed of five variables used in a cycle, say "C-R-A-Z-Y":
C: One of 10 Celestial Stems
R: One of 12 Terrestrial Branches
A: Each sequential pair of Celestial Stem (C) corresponds to one of the Five Elements*
Z: Each year alternates in sequence as Ying or Yang
Y: One of 12 animals of the zodia, starting with Rat and ending with Pig.
* Five Elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water
This is well illustrated in the colour wheel which lists the corresponding Gregorian Calendar years:
This year 2020 then, is the Yang year of the Metal (in Chinese, denoted by the character for "Gold") Rat. 2021 will be Golden Ox. Does that spell a bull run in the markets? Only time or the Almanac will tell.
