A “complication” in watchmaking is anything a mechanical watch might do beyond telling the time and simple date. Here are the best new releases of the brand’s novelty watches to celebrate its 189th anniversary.
Annual Calendar – 4948G
Patek Philippe upholds a tradition in complications that are useful in everyday situations, such as Annual Calendars, dual time zones and World Time displays. At Patek Philippe, we enjoy unrivalled expertise in our knowledge and practice of this pinnacle of the watchmaker’s art.
Calatrava Pilot – 7234R
As a feminine interpretation of the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time launched in 2015, the Reference 7234 combines a rose-gold case with a brown dial and a subtle black gradation toward the periphery. Along with its dashing aeronautical style, this model incorporates a second time zone display, notable for its ease of use, and a local-time date. It is also the first self-winding Travel Time model in Patek Philippe’s collection for women.
Patek Philippe Chrono – 7150-250R
Patek Philippe has given a new look to its manually wound chronograph for women by endowing it with a timeless, understated rose-gold case adorned with vintage details, such as round guilloched pushers and a gently cambered sapphire-crystal “box” glass. The silvery opaline dial, framed by a bezel encircled with diamonds, also combines modern spirit with classic beauty.
Aquanaut Luce 5067A
Beside the complication, Patek Philippe is adding a new blue-gray color as a further choice for the Reference 5067 Aquanaut Luce in stainless steel – an unexpected nuance that underscores the modern, youthful design of the watch. The dial reflects casually sporty looks thanks to its Aquanaut-style embossing and the luminescent hour markers and hands. The new color reflects the sporty chic of our era, lit by a bezel set with 46 diamonds.
