  • Catalogue Essay

    Combining a flyback chronograph and annual calendar complication, reference 5905 was introduced in 2015. Borrowing aesthetics from annual calendar reference 5205, reference 5905 provided a more complicated upgrade to the beloved model.

    Previously only offered in precious metals, the present watch is the newest iteration of the model cased in stainless steel. Offered with a stunning olive green dial, the result is nothing short of jaw-dropping, a true iteration of sporty luxury. Most notably, the color of the dial is remarkably similar - if not identical - to the cult reference 5711 with olive green dial, further increasing the desirability of the present watch. Moreover, it is accompanied by a three-link bracelet inspired by the Aquanaut, amplifying its sporty elegance. The present watch is only the forth example of the reference to appear at auction.

    Preserved in excellent, virtually "as new" condition - in fact the watch was delivered to the original owner on May 5 - it is accompanied by its Certificate of Origin, presentation box and outer packaging.
