Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph 5960P Blue Dial

The most approachable of Patek Philippe's "Complications" series, the annual calendar was actually invented by the brand in 1996. Unlike the triple, complete, and perpetual calendars, the annual calendar is a decidedly modern invention, set in-between the triple and perpetual calendar in complexity. An annual calendar requires an adjustment just once per year – at the end of February; before March – but is otherwise correctly calibrated to indicate the passing days within each month without fault. Patek Philippe offers its annual calendar wristwatches in a number of different executions, with the information displayed on the dial in distinctive ways and sometimes combined with an additional complication. In 2006, Patek Philippe debuted the 5960P – a hybrid annual calendar and flyback chronograph placed in platinum.

The 5960P is one of the most contemporary looking watches in Patek Philippe's catalog today. The example we're offering in the fashiontourbillon.com Shop today dates to 2012 and features a bright sunburst blue dial with red and white accents. Three apertures are set in the top half of the dial, indicating date, month, and day of week. A stacked register at six o'clock simplifies the chronograph functionality into a single area on the dial. Oh, and the beautifully decorated caliber CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H inside? It's nothing but Patek Philippe's first in-house self-winding chronograph – ever.

This Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph is in overall excellent pre-owned condition, which indicates that there are signs of very light wear, possibly some small scratches on the case. The case has been professionally refinished. The dial and hands show no major flaws to note and present in like-new condition. The reverse of each lug is stamped with a hallmark, all of which remain crisp. The Patek Philippe signed "cousu main" or hand sewn, dark blue alligator leather strap is in like-new condition and is fitted to a platinum Patek Philippe deployant clasp. During our quality control check, any necessary adjustments are made to ensure the watch is functioning as intended.

The dial, crown, case, movement, strap, and buckle are all signed by Patek Philippe. This watch is accompanied by its original Patek Philippe box, papers dated January 4, 2012, and manuals.

NOTE: Please be aware that this watch comes with an alligator leather strap as an accessory. If the watch is shipped to any international destination, we will not be able to include the alligator strap due to laws regarding the sale and shipment of exotic leather goods. In this case, we will include a fashiontourbillon.com strap.
Antoni Patek and Franciszek Czapek started making watches together in Geneva in 1839. They separated in 1844, and in 1845, Adrien Philippe joined Antoni Patek to form Patek Philippe & Co. Today, Patek Philippe is the last family-owned, independent watch manufacture in Geneva and is universally regarded as the maker of some of the world's most collectible timepieces. Patek Philippe is just as well-known for its highly complicated watches – including split-seconds chronographs, perpetual calendars, minute repeaters, and world timers – as it is for its simple dress and sport watches in the Calatrava and Nautilus collections. In the 21st century, Patek Philippe has continued to evolve thanks to its Advanced Research division, adopting new techniques and materials, such as silicon, before many other Swiss brands.
