The Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5960 replica watch stands out with a two-tone dial in charcoal and silvery gray. The ingenious day/night display is based on a small round aperture that progressively changes its color from white (day) to dark blue (night) throughout each 24-hour cycle. It is very useful when the time and calendar displays need to be resynchronized after a longer standstill period. The date changes between 8 pm and 2 am, so manual calendar adjustments must not be made during this period. The distinctive layout is attractive and well organized, giving the watch a delightfully unmistakable personality. All displays are quickly and easily legible. Unlike other chronographs, it does not have three subsidiary dials for the running seconds as well as the minute and hour counters. Instead, it features an unusual combined minute and hour totalizer whose circular dial occupies a large portion of the lower face. On the 60-minute totalizer, the longer red hand counts the minutes on the two outer concentric scales that are graduated from 0 to 30 in red and from 30 to 60 in blue. The shorter blue hand and the inner scale indicate the duration in hours – up to 12 – of events that last longer than 60 minutes.
Eight slender applied hour markers in white gold, eleven luminous dots, and the crisp scale graduations deliver the clarity needed for quick time readings. The tips of the leaf-shaped hour and minute hands extend almost fully to the hour and minute indices, and the tip of the chrono hand neatly sweeps the fractional seconds scale.
The upper half of the dial of the mens fake Patek Philippe Ref. 5960P watch is dedicated to the Annual Calendar that displays the day of the week, the date, and the month in three apertures arranged along an arc from 10 to 2 o’clock. The date at 12 o’clock is very prominent. With its polished white-gold frame, the date aperture creates a subtle visual balance with the totalizer that dominates the bottom half of the dial. Depending on the state of wind of the mainspring, the small hand of the power-reserve indicator below the date aperture moves between the plus and minus symbols.
It makes a solid impression with its technical look and feel, amplified on the wrist by the weight of the platinum case. The chronograph is worn on a brown alligator strap with a platinum fold-over clasp. With a case diameter of 40.5 millimeters, the new Ref. 5960P is among the larger Patek Philippe copy timepieces.
