  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 2006, the Patek Philippe reference 5960 is celebrated by collectors for housing their first in-house automatic chronograph movement 28-520/521, in addition to being their first chronograph wristwatch with the annual calendar complication. Initially released in platinum, variants in pink gold, white gold and stainless steel were later added to the production. The present example features a lustrous pink gold case perfectly complementing the alluring brushed grey dial.

    What is great about the annual calendar complication is that it requires only one correction every year in February, making it a more user-friendly version than the regular calendar which requires adjustment five times a year, as well as a more accessible version of the perpetual calendar. Further equipped with the flyback chronograph, the present watch features an attractive sub-dial at the six o’clock with the 12-hour counter surrounded by a 60-minute counter with red and blue numerals and hands. Beneath the centre of the counter, sits a small aperture which shows the day and night indicator, resonating harmoniously with the subtle power reserve indicator beneath the beautiful date display at the 12 o’clock of the dial. It is precisely these minute details which makes the reference 5960 a stunning timepiece. Preserved in excellent overall condition and accompanied with presentation box, this present watch is a gem that should not be missed by any wise collectors.
