  • Catalogue Essay

    An instant success — the ref. 5960, introduced in 2006, was Patek Philippe’s first automatic chronograph wristwatch to incorporate an annual calendar complication. In fact, it was the very first automatic chronograph ever serially produced by Patek Philippe. The reference was first launched in platinum with a grey dial. Patek Philippe later released variants in white gold, pink gold, and stainless steel.

    The present configuration, made in stainless steel with a black dial, was released in late 2017 and only offered for one year. Phillips is honoured to offer the first example of reference 5960/1A with black dial and bracelet at auction, which is not only fresh to the market, but also accompanied with original certificate, box and other accessories. It will be an absolute pleasure for any collectors to have in their collection, to own one of the most exclusive modern complications created by Patek Philippe.

    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.
