The Geneva based manufacturer of haute horlogerie brought a wide range of news to Baselworld this year. We picked our three favorites from Patek Philippes latest additions.
The 5270R chronograph is just stunning. Maybe there’s something special in the drinking water at Patek Philippes design department because it seems like they always managed to squeeze in a range of complications yet maintaining high readability of their dials. The caliber CH 29-535 PS Q is mounted inside the 41 mm rose gold case. It has a perpetual calendar and the day, month, leap year and day/night display in apertures. Oh, and did I mention it’s a mechanical wound movement?
The Nautilus is one of Gerald Gentas most famous designs. The reference 5711/1R indicates that it’s made out of rose gold and my god, it’s simply brilliant. The simplicity of the Nautilus design comes out even better in rose gold. Inside is the caliber 324 S C and the watch measure, as most modern Nautilus, 40 mm. The saturated dial combined with the polished middle bracelet parts makes the watch complete.
Last and absolutely the best – the 6102R. The transparent sapphire-crystal disk for sky chart and the milky way is mesmerizing. The hand for displaying the date adds a well needed red highlight of the dial and the rose gold case of 44 mm. Inside is the caliber 240 LU CL C and the case back is made out of sapphire-crystal to show the beautiful engraved movement. The watch is water resistant to 30 m, but then again how would swim with this grand complication?
It was all in all a great pleasure to visit our friends at Patek Philippe. See the whole range of news by clicking here.
