  • Catalogue Essay

    First introduced in 2006, reference 5960 was Patek Philippe’s first self-winding chronograph wristwatch with an annual calendar complication. The reference was first launched in platinum with grey dial and later released variants in pink gold and with other dials. The original version, such as the present watch, remains popular as it marks a historic moment in Patek Philippe’s history. Reference 5960 in stainless steel was introduced in 2014 and the company ceased production in all precious metal, making the present platinum watch a very rare example and the most collectible in the 5960 series.

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
