Self-winding

Paying tribute to the 20th anniversary of the Aquanaut launched in 1997, the men’s model is now available in the new 42.2-millimeter “Jumbo” format. It features an embossed dial subtly gradated from black to night blue. Decidedly masculine looks for this incarnation of casually elegant chic framed by a delicately satin-finished bezel. The white-gold case is water resistant to 120 m and protects the self-winding caliber 324 S C movement.

Patek Philippe at Baselworld 2017

A year with two anniversaries and fascinating debuts. Patek Philippe can look back to an uninterrupted legacy of 178 successful years in business, so it is not surprising that the suite of anniversaries is becoming denser. They prompt the Genevan manufacture to craft commemorative watches that recall significant events. In 2017, the Aquanaut collection is celebrating its 20th birthday with an anniversary model while the ultra-thin self-winding caliber 240 movement can showcase its many facets with a number of timepieces presented on the occasion of its 40th anniversary. The future is unfolding with a new perpetual calendar watch featuring a timelessly classic "vintage" design, and also with the latest milestones in the "Patek Philippe Advanced Research" series that are united in a limited edition of the Aquanaut Travel Time.
