  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe’s history has been highlighted by some of the most iconic and cherished timepieces ever produced, and their chronograph wristwatches are highly sought after in the market today. Whether a classic vintage chronograph like the references 130 and sporty 1463, or modern iterations such as the references 5070 and 5170, these models are technically sophisticated and offer precision timekeeping. The brand discontinued manually-wound, simple chronograph watches in the 1960s, and reintroduced them in 1998 with the reference 5070, however the chronograph mechanism has long been associated with Patek Phillipe’s most recognised wristwatch model, their iconic line of perpetual calendar chronograph timepieces from the vintage references 1518, 2499, and 3970, to the modern references 5970 and 5270. In 2006, Patek Philippe introduced the reference 5960, their first automatic flyback chronograph wristwatch to incorporate an annual calendar complication, and in 2015 Patek Philippe introduced an updated version - the reference 5905P annual calendar flyback chronograph.

    The new reference 5905P combined the modern design of Patek Phillipe’s annual calendar reference 5205 with a flyback chronograph mechanism in a larger 42mm diameter case versus the earlier reference 5960’s 40.5mm diameter case. Patek Phillipe first introduced the annual calendar model in 1996 with the reference 5035, which offered clients a reasonably priced calendar watch that was more complicated than a simple calendar watch, however less advanced than the perpetual calendar. The annual calendar required a manual correction once per year between February 28th or 29th and March 1st. The model was available either with black or blue dial.

    The present lot is offered for the first time by the original owner and complete with its accessories and preserved in excellent condition. This modern complication will please any watch connoisseur with its modern aesthetic and technically advanced movement.
