Patek Philippe Debuts Two Absolutely Stunning New Timepieces For Watch Aficionados To Drool Over

We have shared a lot of tremendous-looking and superbly-functional watches here over the past several months, but these two new Patek Philippe timepieces are the stuff of a watch aficionado’s dreams.

With the first perpetual calendar in the Nautilus collection and the first chronograph in the Aquanaut range, Patek Philippe has further enhanced their two refined, sporty watch families. The debuts also introduce new patented fold-over clasps providing improved security with four independent catches to optimize opening and closing and to prevent the unintended release.

The first new watch, the Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 5740/1G-001, showcases an analog perpetual calendar that that automatically recognizes the number of days in each month, including the periodically recurring 29th of February.

Sporting an 18K white-gold case, this is Patek Philippe’s thinnest perpetual calendar watch to date.

The dial is decorated with raised horizontal embossing, a typical facet of men’s Nautilus watches, and features the same sunburst blue that graced the versions released on the 40th anniversary of the Nautilus in 2016.

And it can be all yours for the low, low price of $119,700.

The second watch recently introduced by Patek Philippe is the Aquanaut Chronograph, the first chronograph in the Aquanaut collection.

To prepare it for every conceivable situation of an active lifestyle, Patek Philippe endowed the new 5968A-001 with self-winding flyback chronograph movement. And thanks to its screw-down crown, the case is water resistant to 120 meters.

The composite strap is embossed like the dial and is highly resistant to abrasion and wear, as well as to salt water and UV radiation. Patek Philippe offers the watch with two straps: the black one is standard issue and can be replaced with the orange strap that amplifies the accents of the dial.

This watch can be yours from somewhere in the neighborhood of $40,000.
