  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched to the market in 2006, reference 5960 was Patek Philippe’s first automatic chronograph wristwatch with an annual calendar complication. The reference was first launched in platinum and later in pink gold, such as the present watch. The watch is fitted with a grey brushed dial featuring a ‘bull’s eye’ subsidiary dial, complementing the pink gold case. The reference was eventually discontinued in all precious metals with the introduction of steel versions in 2014, making this example in pink gold highly collectible.

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.

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.
