In keeping with its Baselworld tradition, Patek Philippe unveiled a selection of 15 debuts - 10 new watches for men, 5 for ladies – that enrich the manufacture’s current collection in a coherent and balanced presentation on the occasion of the industry’s annual rendezvous.
A new self-winding grand complication introduces a technical innovation. The Ref.5520P-001 Alarm Travel Time in platinum combines the exclusive two time zones mechanism with a 24-hour alarm that strikes a classic gong. The quintessential globetrotter’s watch is endowed with a fully integrated movement for which four patent applications were filled.
Patek Philippe is also presenting a debut in the calendar watch segment: Apart from the day of the week and date, the weekly calendar mechanism also displays the week number. The Ref.5212A-001 Calatrava Weekly Calendar in stainless steel features a totally new self-winding base movement with an optimized performance spectrum.
The very embodiment of modern sporty-chic, the Ref. 5168G-010 men’s white gold
“Jumbo” Aquanaut (42.2mm) reasserts its young, dynamic style in a new khaki green design. This audacious choice of colour evokes a sense of adventure and far horizons.
The steel Nautilus, endowed with an Annual Calendar and moon-phase display, now features a new blue dial – the colour of the original Nautilus model of 1976. Ref. 5726/1A-014 displays horizontal embossing and subtle grading from blue to black at the dial’s periphery to create a powerful yet refined aesthetic that perfectly complements the sheen of the metal.
The ladies’ watches also stand out with many refined enhancements. The self-winding Ref. 7115/1200A Nautilus in stainless steel with a diamond-set bezel leverages its presence on the wrist with a slightly larger diameter and new dial colours. The self-winding Nautilus in rose gold melds casual appeal and elegance in two new models with plain bezels and silvery opaline as well as golden opaline dials (Ref. 7118/1R-001 and Ref.7118/1200A-011).
