  • Catalogue Essay

    Brought into the world in 2006, Patek Philippe reference 5960 was the brand’s first automatic chronograph wristwatch to feature an annual calendar complication. As a matter of fact, reference 5960 was Patek Philippe's very first self-winding chronograph wristwatch ever manufactured. 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 present example is housed in a finely crafted 18K pink gold case, which is further complimented by the gorgeous white dial.

    Featuring the Patek Philippe in-house caliber CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H made of 456 parts, the reference 5960 brilliantly features day, date and month apertures, a power reserve display and a subsidiary dial for the chronograph with day and night indicator. As the reference 5960R has been discontinued, the present timepiece, accompanied with a Certificate of Origin and original hang tag, is an excellent watch to possess.

    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.
