Patek Philippe Calendar 5960/1A Steel Watch

For top brands such as Patek Philippe, exotic materials in various colors such as gold and platinum are used almost exclusively on more complex models, while steel is mainly used for more sporty and/or simpler models. Such as Nautilus and Aquanaut. The irony is that once steel, the most common material, is combined with flagship material, it immediately gains a popular status because it has been systematically ignored in the past. In such an environment, exoticism becomes unremarkable and ordinary becomes special. At Baselworld 2014, Cheap Patek Philippe Replica Watches announced that it will stop producing the 5960 annual calendar automatic timing reference for any and all precious metals, and will only be available in stainless steel from now on. This is a bold decision that may make the brand’s more fanatical followers unprepared.

When we write articles for the rarest and most expensive watches of Patek Philippe Replica, we clearly see that a material that was previously neglected or barely available can double the value of almost any reference. Play a key role. Whether the 5960/1A and another Patek product announced with steel (ie 5990/1A) will be like this, only time will tell us the answer, but now let us take a step by step look at the new products in 2014.

The 5960 is an important reference in the history of Patek, because it is the first internal automatic timer of the company. This is an important achievement in any brand’s life. It provides a rather unusual “single counter” layout at 6 o’clock with hourly and minute indications and a day and night indicator with three holes on the upper circumference of the dial to show the date of the almanac , day and month. As far as aesthetics is concerned, this new steel version offers some subtle but effective changes than its more valuable predecessors.

In essence, the result is a more casual, we dare to say a more sporty appearance, this is a rather unusual sight, in the case of citation, although there are always some modern talents at work, but also Always stay in a more formal way. The font used to chronograph the pen scale has become a more modern alternative from the previously quite formal, and certainly more conservative, style, and its luminescent paint is undoubtedly playing an important role in adding fun to things. . The hands have also been redesigned: made of black gold oxide, they have three sides to match the hour markers, and a healthy luminescent coating to improve legibility in dark conditions.

In addition, all date apertures are now surrounded by a unique application frame, also black oxidized white gold, and the timer display is also black inlaid to further increase the depth of the dial and add some to the sub dial. “Visual component.” With that in mind, as a small but considerable difference in the steel model, the timer of the timer has moved from its original position to the circumference of the dial, and two 30-minute timers have replaced the concentricity of the dial. The timer on the circle. Again, a subtle change, but makes the entire timing section look more balanced.

The internal movement (now taking a deep breath) is the fully internal CH 28-520 IRM QA 24. In other words, this means that the movement includes a back-to-back chronograph, an almanac, a power reserve indicator (the time the brand records is between 45 and 55 hours, depending on the length of time the chronograph is working), and a day and night indication. Its basic movement consists of 302 components, while the clever (2.48 mm thick) annual calendar module adds 154 components. Although we often discuss perpetual calendars – calendars do not need to be adjusted before 2100, which means an ingenious transition between them and traditional calendars.

The role of the almanac is that they can distinguish between 30 days or 31 days, so the user only needs to adjust once a year, on March 1. They are less complex and less expensive than their permanent counterparts, but they have interesting, user-friendly features that, if ever, have important clock components. To make all of these controlled mechanical madness more personal, the number “1” on the 5960/1A’s date dial will be painted red, while the other numbers will be standard black and white numbers. Although this is the most intimate thing Patrick can get, it is a secret between art and the owner, in the cool and well-designed elegant ocean.

Since this calibre is the first chronograph built by Patek Philippe Replica Watches, it is not surprising that it will not let this complicated situation lag behind some fancy calendar modules! The “stopwatch” is equipped with a vertical clutch, the wearer wants How long it takes to use, because this design ensures that critical components do not experience the increasing wear and tear of traditional timers. Its accuracy is made by Patek’s own patented spirulina balance spring made of Silinvar (a term that actually includes silicon).

The result of all these patents and long-term research techniques is that an anti-magnetic balance wheel has superior isochronous properties and therefore has better rate results in long-term operation. By the way, the Patek Seal (Betatek’s own quality inspection program ensures comprehensive technical and aesthetic control of all its watches) requires a movement of this size to reach -3 to +2 seconds per day. Accuracy.

In short, looking back at 5960 is undoubtedly a powerful package, we can say that Fake Patek Philippe Watches made a bold decision when they said that they gave up all the precious metal versions is a very modern and historically important calendar-chronograph company. Their determination was further proved, they provided some of the intangibles that were sometimes invisible, but still very effectively modified the original model of 2006. What we have left is Patek Philippe’s 5960/1A watch. This watch is not only the most impressive and technically the most controversial of their series from now on.

The 5960/1A, as indicated in its reference, will only be available on Patek’s “drop links” stainless steel bracelet, with a retail price of 45,000 Swiss francs, or approximately $54,800.
