  • Catalogue Essay

    Initially introduced in 2018, featuring a stainless steel construction with a black dial and an optional orange (or black) strap, the model underwent a remarkable update in 2021. The transformation involved a shift to the more opulent white gold for the case, while the dial now offered in two colour choices: green or blue, as exemplified by the present model, accompanied by matching straps. Consequently, while the choice of case metal adds a touch of luxury, the lighthearted color palette enhances the overall "fun" aspect, downplaying the seriousness of the timepiece.

    With a 42mm diameter case, the addition of two chronograph pushers does not compromise the integrity of the case, ensuring it remains compact and comfortable on the wrist. The watch strikes a harmonious balance between sportiness and sophistication, housing the renowned in-house calibre CH 28-520. This movement, featuring a flyback function, showcases Patek's traditional craftsmanship, including Gyromax and Spiromax technologies, as well as the prestigious Patek Philippe Seal.

    The present Patek Philippe reference 5968G-001 dates back to 2021 and in nearly "like-new" condition, is accompanied by its original full set of accessories.
