Footnotes

  • In January 2006 Patek Philippe released the reference 5960, an annual calendar chronograph with an in-house automatic movement. The power reserve indication and subsidiary 30 minute register were marked with a 60 minute scale, allowing for greater chronograph timekeeping accuracy and the compact case design and round pushers were a gentle nod back to the Reference 3970.

    The reference was initially launched with a brushed grey anthracite dial and it was not until 2010 that Patek Philippe introduced the blue dial to their platinum examples as seen with the current lot. It can be argued that in comparison with the earlier grey variation, the blue version provides a more legible dial offering a stronger contrast against the platinum.

    At 40mm, the reference 5960 is very wearable and a stellar example of Patek Philippes modern high complication timepieces.
