As Patek Philippe’s first self-winding timepiece allying the chronograph and annual calendar complication, the reference 5960 quickly grasped the attention of collectors and became one of the most popular timepieces of the brand.
Encompassing the Patek Philippe in-house caliber CH28-520 IRM QA 24H made of 456 parts, the timepiece features through its dial a day, date and month aperture, a power reserve display and subsidiary dial for the chronograph function with a day and night indicator.
Now discontinued, the present timepiece represents the very first case material that was introduced for this reference.
