This 5905P* features an annual calendar complication with chronograph functions, a rarely seen combination for watches that has become an integral part of Patek Philippe’s modern annual calendar offerings.
The 5905P has a mixed heritage, as it draws upon two previous annual calendar pieces, the reference 5960 and the reference 5205 respectively, as demonstrated by its blended reference number. The watch borrows the sectors and elongated indexes found on the 5205, while retaining the overall dial layout and sub-seconds style of the 5960.
This 5905P has a deep navy sunburst dial, appearing in lighter hues when exposed to direct light, three calendar apertures displayed across the top of the dial, with day, date, and month placed from left to right, as is typical with Patek’s annual calendars. The 60-second sub-dial found at 6 o’clock also includes a discreet day/night indicator placed just above the 30 second marker.
The lume-filled, dauphine-shaped hands found on the 5905P are not derived from previous references, but are a new addition that is pleasingly modern. Further to this, as opposed to the round pushers found on previous generations of the annual calendar, this 5905P sees them replaced with flat pushers, allowing for a sleeker look.
The watch is powered by the calibre CH28-520, an automatic movement which can be viewed from the sapphire caseback. The movement also bears the Patek Philippe seal on the rotor, which guarantees the movement’s accuracy.

This Patek Philippe 5905P is in good condition overall. Superficial marks are found on the case and lugs consistent with relative wear over time. More specifically these surface marks are found surrounding the calendar pushers on the mid-case, likely as a result from operating the annual calendar function. The hallmarks and engravings on the caseback are crisp and well defined.

The annual calendar complication was invented by the Patek Philippe manufacture in 1996, first made available in the reference 5035. It was developed to show relevant information about the day, whilst also offering a more accessible price point for such a complication, when compared with the brand’s perpetual calendars.
The annual calendar mechanism only requires adjustment once a year in February, as it accounts for the long and short months throughout the year.
Where Patek Philippe's perpetual calendars have been somewhat restrained, the annual calendar has proven to be a complication where they have been able to be more expressive with variations in dial colour and case material combinations.
However, afew mavericks saw things differently. Whereas many tried to move towardsinnovation and progress, a handful of individuals saw the value of doublingdown on tradition, as one of the only ways to ensure that watchmaking couldsurvive. Against all odds, the perpetual calendar experienced a revival.
