  • Catalogue Essay

    The reference 5960 is with no doubt an important milestone for Patek Philippe. It was the first time Patek Philippe featured a non-perpetual calendar into a self-winding chronograph. The 5960 was the first, as it also features an important in-house caliber in a period where Patek Philippe were still using Lemania ébauches in most of their productions. First introduced in 2006, alongside the reference 5980, the first examples were in platinum cases fitted with a grey dial such as the present example.

    Housed inside the timeless Calatrava inspired case, is a beautiful grey dial featuring a never seen before chronograph 12-hour counter. Earning its nickname “the bull’s eye”, the chronographic counter is an iconic feature of the reference, providing an enhanced sporty appeal to the watch.

    Adding to the attraction, the present example is a “new old stock” and it is further single-sealed without having seen a wrist during its lifetime, this is an incredible opportunity to be the first one.
