  • Catalogue Essay

    The first stainless steel example of the Annual Calendar Flyback Chronograph reference 5905 introduced by Patek Philippe, the 5905/1A-001 officially joined the brand’s catalog in fall 2021, fitted with a lovely and elegant olive green dial.

    The 5905 series was originally born in 2015 as a next-generation evolution of Patek’s popular ref. 5960, with slight updates in the shape of a larger case (40.5mm to 42mm) and a more streamlined dial layout. The movement and overall functionality of the two references remains the same. The 5905 and 5960 overlapped in production for a few short years in the late 2010s, but the elder 5960 has now been completely usurped in favor of the 5905.

    The olive-green dial of the steel 5905 is stunning and best appreciated in person. Interestingly, the specific green shade of the dial is remarkably similar – if not identical – to the cult-favorite Nautilus ref. 5711/1A-014, a highly sought-after model with an olive-green dial that represented the conclusion of the 5711 series as a whole and was released a few months prior to the steel 5905’s debut.

    The present example is in close-to-new condition and is offered with a photocopy of its Certificate of Origin, presentation box, and other accessories.
