Patek Philippe has just unveiled its new complications, grand complications and multiple variants of the Nautilus. Needless to say, this unveiling is being regarded as unprecedented in the world of horology.
Patek Philippe Split-Seconds Monopusher Chronograph With Perpetual Calendar For Left-Handers, Ref. 5373P-001
Making its debut, Ref. 5373P-001 is a chronograph meant for left-handed people. Taking bits and pieces from Ref. 5372, this model sits on a 38.3 mm platinum case. Being meant for left handed people, the watch has a crown at 9 o’clock and the split-seconds pusher at the 8 o’clock position. The timepiece also gets the analogue date at 12 o'clock, the subsidiary seconds at 3 o'clock, the moonphase display at 6 o'clock and the 60-minute counter at 9 o'clock, along with the aperture displays for the day of the week and the month as well as the leap year cycle between 10 and 11 o’clock and the day/night indicator between 1 and 2 o’clock. Powering the watch is the Calibre CHR 27-525 PS Q, which is the thinnest split-seconds chronograph and perpetual calendar movement ever produced by Patek Philippe, offering a power reserve of up to 48 hours. The watch is finished on a charcoal black, satin-finish strap.
Aquanaut Luce ‘Rainbow’ Chronograph, Ref. 7968/300R-001
The timepiece with its rainbow-like colours is meant solely for women. The 39.9 mm chronograph is made from high-quality rose gold with a bezel that features a rainbow array of baguette-cut diamonds and sapphires in two rows. The mother-of-pearl dial consists of applied Arabic numerals in 18 ct rose gold and applied hour markers also in 18 ct rose gold with rainbow baguette sapphires and a 60-minute counter at 6 o’clock. The timepiece is powered by Calibre CH 28-520 and has a power reserve of up to 55 hours. The watch is finished on a red, matte beige or matte white strap made from a composite material.
Patek Philippe Split-Seconds Chronograph, Perpetual Calendar, Ref. 5204G-001
Today, many watchmakers are moving away from their signature dial colours and have started to experiment with other colours with green dials definitely taking the driver’s seat. Take the new split-seconds chronograph, perpetual calendar (Ref. 5204G-001). Combining a chronograph with a perpetual calendar, the watch comes on a 40 mm white gold case with an olive green sunburst dial, black gradient minute track and baton-style hour markers in gold with luminescent coating. The watch gets a 18 ct gold dial plate, white gold faceted dauphine hands with luminescent coating. On the dial there is a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, small seconds dial at 9 o ’clock; the dial also gets a double window at 12 o’clock for Day and Month, a leap year indicator at 4:30, a moon phase with date display at 6 o’clock and day/night indication on the aperture at 7:30.
Another important function of the watch is that the crown at 3 o’clock gets a dual setting — when it’s pushed inside, it winds the watch and when pulled out, it sets the time with the stopping of the seconds hand, with two pushers to start and stop the chronograph function and to start and stop the split second hands. This watch has multiple patents, six for the chronograph and one for the split-seconds movement. Powering the watch is the CHR 29-535 PS Q Calibre with 65 hours of power reserve. The watch comes on an olive green calfskin strap with contrasting beige stitching and white gold fold-over clasp.
Patek Philippe World Time Flyback Chronograph, Ref. 5935A-001
The World Time Flyback Chronograph Ref. 5935A-001 combines two complications . This 41 mm stainless steel case watch displays 24 time zones and all mechanisms can be corrected via a single pusher at 10 o’clock. This timepiece gets a rose-gilt opaline dial with a ‘carbon’ central motif, baton-type hour markers accompanied with dauphine hands on charcoal grey white gold with luminescent coating. The watch gets a 30-minute counter at 6 o’clock. The chronograph gets two pushers at two o’clock and 4 o’clock with a crown at 3 o’clock.
Powering the watch is the 28-520 HU Calibre with 55 hours of power reserve. This watch comes with two calfskin straps – grained taupe (originally fitted) and beige with a nubuck finish (additional strap), secured by a steel fold-over clasp.
Patek Philippe Nautilus, Ref. 5990/1A-011
This 40.5 mm stainless steel watch has a flyback chronograph, a second timezone function and a date display. The blue dial gets sunburst finishing and black gradation towards the edges, the watch indicates home time via a separate skeletonised hour hand, along with apertures that provide day and night indications for both the local and home time. The timepiece has pushers at 9 o'clock to help set the time, both local and home; local time can be further set via the crown. The date indicator is attuned to the local time and displayed in a subdial at 12 o’clock; the hour, minute and indices have luminescence.
Chronograph pushers are at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock, and a 60-minute counter rests at 6 o’clock. The watch is powered by the automatic CH 28-520 C FUS movement with a power reserve of 45 hours.
Patek Philippe Nautilus, Ref. 5712/1R-001
A direct successor to the first Nautilus, this 40 mm rose gold watch features a brown sunburst dial, a small seconds subdial sits at 4:30 and the moonphase and calendar function sits between 6 o’clock and 8 o’clock. The watch has a power reserve indicator at 10:30. The gold baton hands and gold-applied indices feature luminescence. This new reference is also available in rose gold and white gold with alligator leather straps (references 5712R-001 and 5712G-001).

The watch is powered by the automatic 324 S C self-winding movement with a min. 38 hours and max. 48 hours of power reserve. The bracelet is secured with a patented Patek Philippe fold-over clasp that has four independent safety catches.
Patek Philippe Nautilus, Ref. 5811/1G-001
The Nautilus collection is what Patek Philippe is known for and Ref. 5811 now succeeds the discontinued 5711.
