Afaik, most perpetuals have a quick set in the sense that you (a) turn the crown to move all the date indications at once without having to go through a 24 hour cycle: or (b) adjust the indications using a corrector.

It can be painful for the crown only calibres if you have to catch up months and years because you have to quick set through every single past day. It is even worse if the the year is indicated (if the watch was worn more than 4 years ago!). For those that don't track the year, the most is to quick set through a 4 year cycle of 1461 days.

For those calibres with correctors, it's relatively quick and simple to set the day, date, month, and year in a 4 year cycle to bring it up to date. At worst you have to click through 48 months if year and month are coupled together.

I also think that it's due partly to the "complexity" of the sequence of setting the corrector pushers.

At least for the cal. 240Q in the Patek, you have to set to a safe time first, then set to the 1st of the month (pusher 1), then set to the correct month in the correct year (pusher 2), then set the date (pusher 1), and then the day of the week (pusher 3), then moonphase (pusher 4), then time, in this specific sequence.

The bullet bracelet is actually a reissue from an old design.

Green dials seem to be used frequently for middle eastern special editions.
