  • Catalogue Essay

    Presented at Baselworld in 2015, Patek Philippe’s reference 5905P features an elegant 42mm diameter platinum case with an annual calendar and a flyback chronograph complication. The reference was first available only in platinum and in 2019 released in a 18K pink gold variant with a “chocolate” brown dial.

    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, 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. 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 a new, highly attractive version - the reference 5905P annual calendar flyback chronograph.

    The present example is offered for the first time at auction by the family of the original owner, and features a blue dial. It is offered with the full set of accessories, and is extremely well-preserved with hardly any signs of wear.
