Complex Art 5960r Rose Gold Watch From Patek Philippe

Patek Philippe enjoys a high reputation in the watch industry. Its products have high-performance movements, excellent materials and gorgeous appearance, which are examples of many low-end brands competing to imitate. Relying on the brand philosophy it has always adhered to, clarifying its own brand positioning, it has been among the high-end watch fields. Come and enjoy the Patek Philippe Complication Chronograph 5960R today.
 Patek Philippe’s complication chronograph series 5960R grey dial watch case is made of luxurious and elegant rose gold. Rose gold has become the darling of fashion people because of its romantic name and soft charming colors, just like all kinds of lovers. The tone of the surface of the disk is gray, white is contrasted, the three-dimensional gold hour markers and hands highlight the style, and white is the background color of the ribbon, which has a more prominent meaning and shows the unique charm of its function. The layout of the disk is compact and consistent. The 60-minute and 12-hour counters are combined into one to save space. Connected to the case is a dark brown crocodile leather strap, which matches the color of the rose gold material, highlighting the layers without appearing abrupt.

Overall, the appearance of the Patek Philippe 5960R grey dial watch is clear, the layout is reasonable and orderly, and the elegance is a little deeper. Gray is its breakthrough. So far, all mechanical watch brands have rarely adopted gray as the main color of the dial. In Baidu’s explanation, gray is simple, ethereal, and elusive, interspersed between black and white, and is a neutral color. It can be used with any color as a background color to make other colors stand out. The Patek Philippe 5960R dial uses gray. The reason probably lies in this.
The Patek Philippe 5960R grey dial watch is located in the complex function chronograph series. The complexity of the function does not need to be elaborated. I believe that watch friends who know this Patek Philippe series have already been familiar with it. The 5960R has a window-type day, date, and month display, an annual calendar function, a 60-minute and 12-hour flyback cumulative timekeeping function, a day and night display function, and a power reserve display function. It is not surprising that each of these functions can be taken out individually. Some basic functions, but when these simple and uncommon functions are integrated together, it has become a model that countless mechanical watches cannot reach.
 The functional feature of the Patek Philippe 5960R watch is the combination of the chronograph standard and the ordinary second hand, which is a height that cannot be reached by other brands. Traditional chronographs generally separate the standard second hand and chronograph second hand, and Patek Philippe not only breaks through the traditional chronograph second hand, but also brings a visual feast. When the chronograph function is not activated, the central large second hand is the standard second hand for walking. When the chronograph function is activated, the central large second hand will jump to the 12 o’clock position to start timing, while the internal seconds wheel continues to run, but the chronograph function When stopped, the second hand will return to where the standard second hand should be. So this is a very complex and challenging performance, and a technology that other brands have not mastered.

The sophistication and accuracy of Patek Philippe’s Super Complication Chronograph 5960R watch relies on the self-winding mechanical movement Cal.CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H made by Patek Philippe. The movement is based on the 28-520 movement, which extends some functional modules and has the Patek Philippe mark, ensuring its high quality from the movement to the watch. The watch equipped with this movement includes the entire 5960 and 5961P watches. This movement is specially developed for the chronograph series with complex functions. It has a 55-hour power reserve and Patek Philippe’s patented Gyromax balance wheel. The delicate functional and decorative sanding process, through the back, we can watch the very perfect appearance and operation of the Cal.CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H movement.
 Since ancient times, Patek Philippe watches have established themselves as the most perfect watch in the world. It has extremely strict control over brand models, and requires that each watch must be made in strict accordance with the Patek Philippe mark standard. Therefore, Patek Philippe watches represent quality and value. The Patek Philippe 5960R grey dial watch has a bold and unique appearance design. It uses chaotic and ethereal gray as the main color of the dial, blending fashion and wisdom, reflecting the elegance of a gentleman; pursuing excellence in function, integrating multiple functions to form its own The complex function system gives the watch a very high degree of fun and practicality; Cal.CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H movement is stable in performance and completes each function with high quality, making the time accurate and unique. The structure reflects the craftsmanship and value.
The 5960R grey dial watch was launched in 2006 with a quotation of 66w RMB. The super high price has made many watches inexplicable. As an art and luxury product, its price only reflects its own value.

Two Complex Functions Merge Into One Patek Philippe 5905r

In 2015, PATEK PHILIPPE will combine the automatic chronograph seconds function with the calendar function to release the complex chronograph 59050-001 and 59050-010 watches. And in 2019, Patek Philippe is committed to enriching this series, and once again launches a rose gold case style 5905R-001, with a coffee-colored radial face plate with a black gradient effect.

Ref. 5905 combines Patek Philippe’s critically acclaimed automatic flyback chronograph and annual calendar with two complex functions, launching a new rose gold case modification in 2019

Following the previous platinum model, the rose gold model will be launched again in 2019, with a black coffee-colored gradient dial and a sandblasted chronograph second hand, making the watch particularly elegant.

The dial of the watch is designed with the technical appearance of an extremely short-term measuring instrument and the elegant style of Patek Philippe. The dial is equipped with three-sided royal-style luminous coating hour and second hands, rose gold hour markers and five-minute luminous dots. The junior hand is sandblasted and the seconds are counted using the chronograph seconds function. At 6 o’clock, there is a large auxiliary display panel, counting from 1 to 60 minutes. Three arc-shaped display windows show the day, date, and month.
