Patek Philippe unveiled new Calatrava & Aquanaut Luce timepieces
Patek Philippe introduced the first chronograph model in its Pilot style watch family, combined with a Travel Time function and a date indication by hand joined with local time.
This new automatic 42mm model comes in a white gold version, with a sunburst blue-grey or khaki green lacquered dial. Each dial has applied numerals and sword-shaped hands in white gold with a luminescent coating.
The Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Chronograph is powered by the self-winding mechanical movement Caliber CH 28‑520 C FUS, with a 45-55 hour power reserve.
We noted the sporty additions to the Calatrava collection – three new 40mm white gold timepieces in a modern, graphic style.
The ebony black dials are enhanced by three types of finishing, with an embossed carbon pattern in the centre. The yellow-accented version is the most striking.
The Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce is now enriched with the patented Annual Calendar, a day/date/month calendar which requires only one manual correction per year, at the end of February. We liked this new timepiece because it’s a new complication proposal for ladies, with no precious stones, just precious mechanics. And the blue-grey colour is perhaps the most striking from the Patek palette. The 26‑330 S QA LU self-winding movement ensures a power reserve of 35-45 hours.
