  • Catalogue Essay

    The reference 5960 is a milestone reference for Patek Philippe, as it was fitted with the brand’s first self-winding chronograph movement – calibre CH 28-520 - designed and manufactured completely in-house and furthermore merged with the brand's signature annual calendar complication. Since its launch in 2006, the reference 5960 has undergone various configurations. The present example in platinum with anthracite dial represents the very first series of the piece. It was later realized in pink gold as well as in steel.

    The 5960 has been lauded for its sporty feel, generous dimensions without sacrificing wearability, and innovative dial layout with the calendar indications on the top part of the dial and the chronograph indications on one single subdial - sparking the informal nickname for the piece: "Bull's Eye" - placed in the lower section of the dial. Reference 5960 is a highly practical timepiece that is favored for daily wear amongst collectors thanks to its intuitive annual calendar complication and comfortable yet stylish wrist presence.

    The present first series example is preserved in excellent and barely worn condition and is accompanied by all its original accessories such as the Certificate of Origin, presentation box and outer packaging.
