Playing with the Devil - When creating watches at Patek Philippe, we often seek a balance between respect for the past and our desire to innovate. Witness Ref. 5960/1A Annual Calendar Chronograph, a wristwatch that emanates the cool sheen of stainless steel combined with a rare classical elegance. The chronograph has always featured prominently in the vast range of complications in which Patek Philippe has demonstrated its virtuosity. For over 175 years, the manufacture has created a wealth of different models, many of which count among the timepieces most admired and sought after by connoisseurs and collectors.
