    Reference 5961 is the sparkling diamond-set upgrade of reference 5960 (please see Lot 2547 and 2548 in this sale). This timepiece will most certainly gather the interest of diamond-set watch enthusiasts.

    Reference 5960 and 5961 was Patek Philippe's first self-winding chronograph with an annual calendar and the in-house calibre CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H. Furthermore, the present watch is fresh to the market.
