Patek Philippe 5960/1A Annual Calendar Chronograph

Patek Philippe 5960/1A With Black Dial – The Casual Annual Calendar Chronograph

Patek Philippe 5960/1A Ebony Black Opaline Dial

Earlier this year Patek Philippe released a stainless steel configuration of the popular 5960/1A annual calendar chronograph. This version features a black dial on what has become one of the most sophisticated high-end sports watches available today.

Its white 60-minute and 12-hour mono counter offers a bold contrast against the ebony black opaline dial, elegantly displayed between the red sweep-seconds hand and 6 o’clock. The day, date and month appear through apertures at 10, 12 and 2 o’clock.

Pointed gold applied hour markers adorn the circumference of the dial. In addition to the time and date, it displays the power reserve and day/night indicator. Its Caliber CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H mechanical self-winding movement is displayed through a sapphire crystal case back.

The movement measures 33 mm in diameter with a height of 7.68 mm. It vibrates at a frequency of 4 Hz with a maximum power reserve of 55 hours. It contains 456 parts, 14 bridges and 40 jewels. It’s hallmark is the Patek Philippe Seal, the company’s quality benchmark.

The aesthetic of this chronograph incorporates classic elements like an annual calendar mono counter while adhering to a sporty contemporary design standard. The 5960/1A’s stainless steel case measures 40.5 mm in diameter and is fitted with an elegant steel bracelet and fold-over clasp. It is water resistant up to 30 meters.
