  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 2006, reference 5960 was Patek Philippe’s first self-winding chronograph wristwatch to be fitted with an annual calendar complication. In fact, it was Patek Philippe's first automatic chronograph ever produced. The reference was first launched in platinum with a grey dial. Patek Philippe later released variants in pink gold, white gold and stainless steel. The original version, such as the present watch, remains popular as it marks a historic moment in Patek Philippe’s history. The stainless steel version of reference 5960 was introduced in 2014 and the manufacture subsequently ceased production of all precious metals.
