Patek Philippe unveil eight new timepieces, extending its series with creations that honour the iconic designs of the past and showcase the true mastery of Patek Philippe watchmaking.
Introducing Five New Chronographs
Patek Philippe evolves its collection of complications with five new chronographs, including a split-seconds monopusher chronograph for left-handers and the first chronograph in the Aquanaut Luce ladies’ collection. Each new timepiece honours the tradition of Patek Philippe complications watches, enhancing its wearers everyday life, with ingenious and useful features that demonstrate an unrivalled knowledge in fine watchmaking.
Split-Seconds Monopusher Chronograph with Perpetual Calendar Ref. 5373P-001
Patek Philippe’s Ref. 5373P-001 represents a monumental time in the Swiss brand’s history as the first left-hander chronograph to be unveiled in Patek Philippe’s recent history. The unique arrangement caters for the left-handers and those who simply have a taste for unusual watchmaking and rare novelties. Equipped with caliber CHR-27-525 PS Q, the thinnest split-seconds chronograph movement with perpetual calendar ever built, the platinum case maintains its refined and distinguished appearance. Embodying modernity in its movement and design, the charcoal-coloured dial with a black gradation and red varnished chronograph hands reflects a sporty and contemporary style echoed on the strap.
Aquanaut Luce “Rainbow” Chronograph Ref. 7968/300R-001
Evolving the trailblazing series of ladies’ complications timepieces, Patek Philippe introduces its first self-winding ladies’ chronograph – the first chronograph in the Aquanaut Luce collection. This new timepiece embraces traditional craft, applied with the modern active woman in mind. Baguette diamonds and multi-coloured sapphires adorn this timepiece, creating a magnificent display of colour around the dial, complemented with three ultra-resistant composite straps in matte white, matte beige and red.
Split-Seconds Chronograph with Perpetual Calendar Ref. 5204G-001
A reinvention of a grand classic, Patek Philippe unveils the split-seconds chronograph with perpetual calendar in a white-gold case and olive green sunburst dial with black gradation. This timepiece continues the theme of striking green Patek Philippe watches unveiled this year. Combining two of Patek Philippe’s most coveted grand complications, this timepiece is a complete embodiment of the pioneering spirit of the brand, showcasing traditional architecture and seven patented innovations.
Self-Winding World Time Flyback Chronograph Ref. 5935A-001
Ref. 5935A-001 represents another reinvention of a cult model, unveiling the first of its kind in stainless steel. This timepiece signifies a unification of sporty and vintage design, the carbon motif in the centre of the opaline rose gilt dial exuding a modern and dynamic spirit. The World Time function is one of Patek Philippe’s signature creations, simultaneously indicating 24 time zones and relying on the exclusive patented mechanism to correct all displays with a single pusher.
Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph Ref. 5990/1A-011
The Ref. 5990/1A-011 Nautilus Travel Time chronograph is one of Patek Philippe’s rare steel watches. The Nautilus Travel Time chronograph is reinvented with a new sunburst blue dial and black gradation. The sporty and elegant timepiece combines three innovative and useful functions: a flyback chronograph, a Travel Time function (two time zones with two separate hour hands; the skeletonized hand shows home time) and an analog date at 12 o'clock which is synchronised with local time.
Introducing Three New Versions of the Nautilus Cult Watch
Revisiting a legend, Patek Philippe pays homage to the iconic Nautilus model, introducing three new casually elegant interpretations including the successor of the legendary Ref. 5711.
Nautilus with an Analog Date, Moon Phases, and a Power-Reserve Indicator Ref. 5712/1R-001
The ultimate embodiment of sporty elegance, the renowned Nautilus is given a new and illustrious warmth with a case and bracelet in rose gold with brown sunburst dial and black gradation. The distinct arrangement of the complications on the dial makes for incredible legibility and maintains the instantly recognisable face.
Nautilus Joaillerie Ref. 7118/1300R-001
Patek Philippe introduce a new ladies Nautilus jewellery version, combining the warmth of rose gold with the unique luster of spessartite gemstones. The signature octagonal bezel is adorned with two rows of spessartite baguettes, displaying the delicate art of gemsetting in the creation of a double colour gradation from cognac at 12 and 6 o’clock to champagne at 9 and 3 o’clock.
Nautilus in White Gold and Blue Sunburst Dial Ref. 5811/1G-001
An homage to the original 1976 design, Patek Philippe introduces the 5811/1G-001 in white gold featuring a blue sunburst dial with black gradation to the periphery. This new model is subtly refined to reflect the ever-evolving technology of Patek Philippe, equipped with a secured fold-over clasp, a new lockable adjustment system, and a new pull-out piece lever system that replaces the split stem.
