PATEK PHILIPPE is the watch king, I don’t know which one you will choose as your first choice. Compared with the popular Nautilus and grenades, Patek Philippe is actually better at formal watches, especially in complex functions.
Open Patek Philippe’s watch catalog, the first is the super complex function timepiece. What is super complicated timepiece? It refers to movements with one or more functions of minute repeater, tourbillon, perpetual calendar, and split-second timing.
You can always trust Patek Philippe’s complex models, and today I will introduce a complex function timepiece-Ref.5961P.
Looking at the model, you can tell that this is the top configuration made of platinum. His low-end version Ref.5960 was released in early 2006, which has a special meaning for Patek Philippe-it is the first self-winding chronograph of PP. This complex replica watch with annual calendar, day and night display, and timing functions forms a complementary positioning relationship with Ref.5970 (released in 2004) in the same period. It seems that the functions are similar, but there are obvious differences in reality. First of all, the 5970 is a perpetual calendar plus a month plus timing, which is more advanced in function. In addition to the simplified functions, the most important thing is that the 5960 has an automatic winding function. You must know that the previous Patek Philippe has never produced an automatic chronograph movement!
At the same time, this is a Patek Philippe replica watch with a new layout. The traditional layout of the timing dial is three eyes. And this time Ref.5960 can see that the new version of the dial design has been improved by leaps and bounds. First of all, 6 o’clock is the overall mode of the chronograph dial. The small dial contains a chronograph minute hand and a chronograph hour hand, and a small dot for day and night display is added below. It can be seen that this design is more compact and concise than the previous timing dial, and has been redesigned, with bold fonts, enhanced contrast, and better readability. The 12 o’clock calendar window (day, date, month) is more clearly outlined.
The six o’clock direction is the 12-hour and 60-minute timing display. The long hand is the minute pointer, pointing to the 1-30 minute scale on the outer circle and the 30-60 minute scale on the middle circle; the shorter pointer is the hour hand; the six o’clock direction of the small dial is Day and night display window, blue represents night, white represents day.
The dial is matte blue lacquered and set with 8 baguette diamond hour markers. There are 36 elongated diamonds on the outer ring, and each diamond is a top gemstone between D and G colors. Clarity must be Internally Flawless (referred to as IF grade), and traditional hand-setting techniques are used to highlight the beauty of the gemstone and give it its most dazzling luster.
A diamond is hidden below the case at six o’clock, which is also a tradition that Patek Philippe has continued since the brand was launched in 1999, and it is also a classic iconic design of Patek Philippe’s platinum case.
There are three sunken buttons on the outer edge of the left side of the case. The nine o’clock position is used to adjust the day, the ten o’clock position is used to adjust the month, and the middle position is used to adjust the date.
Cara Zhuohua’s one-way folding buckle is also inlaid with 22 baguette diamonds, creating the ultimate style of local tyrants. The overall surface diameter is 40.5MM and the thickness is 13.53MM. It is not difficult to imagine its wearing comfort. In addition, the heavy feeling brought by platinum is different from other precious metals.
Equipped with CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H automatic chronograph movement, the integrated complex functions of this movement include automatic return timing, annual calendar, power reserve display and day and night display, etc., and the water resistance is 30 meters. It can be seen that it is not easy for the replica watch to maintain a slender figure under the combination of various complex functions.
The thickness of the movement benefits from Patek Philippe’s strong research and development capabilities on the movement. The movement can be divided into two main areas from the back. One side is responsible for the automatic winding function, and the other is responsible for the timing function. The two modules are on the same plane, which is very difficult for the movement design.
This is not a simple superposition or modification, but a design layout that breaks the original chronograph movement. A large eccentric change has been made, which not only ensures the efficient operation of the automatic winding function, but also realizes the original timing function. It also retains the guide wheel column and has a chronograph second hand flyback function. And from the feedback of several replica watch repair masters, the stability of this movement is good. Although there are many functions, the modules are clear and easy to maintain.

The annual calendar part is basically the same as the 315 movement annual calendar component of Ref.5035 launched in 1996. This is also the first time that Patek Philippe’s annual calendar component has been used. In the past, it was a perpetual calendar, and the annual calendar was also called a full calendar. The disk displayed the date, week, and month. At the same time, the patented device for large and small months also greatly reduces the number of date adjustments, and only needs to be adjusted once a year in February.
All in all, this PP movement with 28-520 calendar modules can be said to be the main movement of the P family’s complex timepieces. In particular, the automatic winding function fills the deficiency of the original manual timing movement and caters to the needs of the new market. It can be seen that this movement is equipped with many replica watches, and it is equipped with this movement in Nautilus and Aquanaut, which shows that Patek Philippe has high hopes for this movement.
If you like complicated models but want to wear them easily, you can choose the steel model 5960A or the new 5905A. This is also one of the very few formal replica watches that use steel.
