  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 2006, reference 5960 was Patek Philippe’s first self-winding chronograph wristwatch to incorporate an annual calendar complication. As a matter of fact, it was Patek Philippe's very 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 highly coveted by watch collectors around the world as it marks an important milestone in Patek Philippe’s history.

    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. Now discontinued, the present timepiece, accompanied with a Certificate of Origin and original hang tag, is offered in excellent overall condition.
