Description
If ever there were a rare modern Patek wristwatch, this would be it. Our 5960G is new with special box and papers and limited edition certificate. This 5960 is rare for a few reasons: it’s white gold, only 100 were made for the Mercury/Patek Boutique in Moscow, and it has a special color blue dial. In short, it’s a gorgeous timepiece.

Where do I even start, in describing Patek's reference 5960 annual calendar chronograph? Let's start with history: this is Patek Philippe's first automatic chronograph in their 175+ year blue-ribbon history. It's also Patek's first flyback chronograph. And, due to the caliber's unique construction, the central chronograph seconds hand can be operated continuously (to serve as a conventional seconds hand) without harming the mechanism or adversely affecting accuracy.

The reference 5960 also features the first completely in-house chronograph caliber from Patek since the early 1980s. (In the interim years, all of Patek's chronograph calibers have been built from Nouvelle Lemania ebauches). Finally, this chronograph is the first to feature the 30 minute and 12 hour chronograph indicators in the same subdial. So clearly, Patek has innovated meaningfully with their new automatic winding Caliber CH28-520/521. But we've only covered the chronograph so far...

This new Patek Philippe masterpiece also provides an annual calendar, with the day, date and month displays arranged in an arc from 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock. Within the chronograph subdial there is a small aperture which displays a day/night indicator. To round out the complications, a power reserve indicator is located just underneath the date window.
I could stop here, and we'd all be convinced that this is an awesome watch. But the story would only be half told.

The Caliber CH28-520 is, once again, Patek's first ever automatic chronograph. Featuring column wheel construction, with 456 individual parts, the caliber also makes use of a massive 21k gold rotor, 40 jewels, 55 hour power reserve and is stamped with the Patek Philippe Seal.

Case is 18k white gold with a sapphire crystal front and back, with a diameter of 40.5mm. Chronograph pushers are pump style. Case back is screw down. While the watch is extremely refined and elegant, it is also more than a little sporty.

This watch features a unique blue dial. While the 5960P is available with a blue dial with white chapter ring, this dial is a different shade of blue and is all blue. In addition, this watch has special red center seconds hand. White gold applied baton markers and feuille hands with inlaid luminous. Calendar apertures are framed in white gold.

Strap is hand-sewn Patek matte blue crocodile with an 18k white gold Patek Philippe deployant clasp.

Watch is new and complete with special box, hang tag, certificate and papers.
