  • Catalogue Essay

    First introduced in 2006, reference 5960 was Patek Philippe’s first self-winding chronograph wristwatch with an annual calendar complication. The reference was first launched in platinum with grey dial. Patek Philippe later released variants in pink gold and stainless steel.

    The present example is preserved in excellent condition and belongs to an early example of the reference still bearing the Geneva seal stamp on the movement. Now discontinued, early examples of the reference encased in platinum has witnessed a growth in interest from collectors in recent times.
