Introduced three years ago as the entry-level sports chronograph from Patek Philippe, the ref. 5960/1A was originally in white with black accents. Now the colour scheme – the ref. 5960/1A-010 – has been inverted for Baselworld 2017.
Hardly earth shattering news but it’s from Geneva’s best so some hearts will beat faster nonetheless.
The new dial is “ebony black opaline”, while the rest of the watch remains the same. A 40.5mm steel case with a matching steel bracelet, and the automatic calibre CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H inside.
Price and availability
Pricing has yet to be announced, but expect it to cost similar to the US$51,000 of the existing ref. 5960/1A in silver.
