The chronograph has always played a leading role amid the vast repertoire of Patek Philippe complicated watches. The various chronograph calibers are offered in the current collection in more than 20 variations – to which three new, resolutely contemporary interpretations have now been added.
On the occasion of the “Rare Handcrafts 2020-2021” exhibition, the Genevan manufacture presents a world debut with six models of grand complication timepieces or icons of watch design featuring artistic decorations such as manual engraving, grand feu cloisonné enamel, grand feu champlevé enamel, grand feu flinqué enamel, manual guilloching and gemsetting.
Available in steel or rose gold, the Aquanaut Luce now features a larger diameter and a new integrated composite strap. The Aquanaut Luce ladies’ line is joined by a totally new travel companion with an exclusive Travel Time quartz movement. The men’s Aquanaut range welcomes the first Aquanaut chronograph in white gold with color accents in night blue or khaki green.
Calatrava & Calendars
The manufacture presents a bouquet of technical and aesthetic debuts: the Calatrava “Clous de Paris” with a new manually wound movement and a contemporary design; a new perpetual calendar with an innovative in-line display; the patented Annual Calendar in its first ever round steel case; the Calatrava ladies’ model with a guilloched, blue lacquered dial with a self-winding movement in a slightly larger case.
The manufacture is showing four new faces in its Nautilus collection: the Ref. 5711/1A in stainless steel features an all-new sunburst dial in olive green, also available with a baguette diamond-set bezel. The Ref. 5990/1 Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph combines rose gold with a blue sunburst dial and the very rare Nautilus Haute Joaillerie has a sparkling random pavé set diamond complement.
The manufacture is continuing the renewal of its Twenty~4 collection, which has come to epitomize timeless feminine elegance. The “manchette” or cuff-style models with quartz movements now include a new version in rose gold with a chocolate-brown sunburst dial. The Twenty~4 Automatic, in a round case, offers two new models, one in steel adorned with an olive-green sunburst dial, the other in rose gold, its dial gilded with a rose-gold sunburst.
