  • Catalogue Essay

    The reference 5960 is a milestone reference for Patek Philippe, as it was fitted with the brand’s first self-winding chronograph – the calibre CH 28-520, designed and manufactured completely in-house. Since its launch in 2006, the reference 5960 has undergone various configurations, first offered only in platinum with an anthracite grey dial, like the present lot, followed by a version in pink gold.

    The 5960 has been lauded for its sporty feel, generous dimensions without sacrificing wearability, and innovative dial layout. A highly practical timepiece that is favored for daily wear amongst collectors thanks to its intuitive annual calendar complication and comfortable yet stylish wrist presence. Manufactured in the reference’s first year of production, the current example is fresh to the market and offered in pristine condition for the discerning collector.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
