Patek Philippe 5960R, retail $59,500

In 2006, Patek Philippe launched its first automatic chronograph that included an annual calendar in platinum, the 5960P, and a star was born.

This year at the Basel Fair in Switzerland, Patek introduced a new version of this hugely popular watch in rose gold, the 5960R, and it promises to be just as much of a fan favorite.

The 18kt rose gold of the case, coupled with the lighter grey of the dial, gives the watch a softer, more retro feeling than the platinum version, while the matte brown alligator strap and adjustable deployant buckle add an elegant finishing touch to this horological masterpiece.

With a 40.5mm case, the watch has the easily readable day, date and month apertures; power reserve indicator; day/night display; plus the signature 60-minute and 12-hour monocounter at 6pm. The 5960R has a sapphire crystal back to showcase this complicated watch movement.
