  • Catalogue Essay

    No longer in production, the Patek Philippe ref. 5960 was first launched in 2006 as the firm’s exciting inaugural attempt to deliver a fully in-house self-winding chronograph. On top of that, the Swiss manufacturer surprised collectors by merging an annual calendar function into the already complicated timepiece, resulting in a watch that nobody expected, but everyone desperately needed. Originally launched as a grey-dialled platinum sports watch, the reference was released in a few other precious metals such as pink and white gold. In 2014, the firm released a stainless steel variant offering the firm’s signature rice bead bracelet fitted with a warm white dial with strong black accents, giving the reference a refreshed contemporary appeal.

    Framed in a stainless steel case, the black-dialled ref. 5690/1A-010 is among the most coveted models that unveiled in 2017, thanks to its short-lived one-year production and modern athletic aesthetic. With an irresistible design boasting distinct Patek Philippe proportions, the dial is highly legible as it optimizes a “bull’s eye” register that unifies the three traditionally separated calendar counters into one fan-shaped formation. Fusing form and function, the watch is complete with a power reserve indicator above the firm’s signature and a chronograph sub-dial with day/night indication.

    The sapphire caseback invites the wearer to admire the Patek Philippe in-house calibre CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H. Assembled by 456 different components, this is a compact and competent movement, tailored to seamlessly power the Annual Calendar Chronograph watch.

    Pivoting away from iconic dress watches, the ultra-sporty stainless steel. 5690/1A-010 is a progressive Patek Philippe example, born ready for action. Offered in excellent overall condition and accompanied by its original accessories, the present timepiece is the perfect everyday utility dedicated to the modern collectors.

    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.
