The new watch from Patek Philippe, presented at BaselWorld 2014, is the new Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph 5990/1A which replaces the reference 5980/1A.
The 40.5mm brushed and polished steel case has been updated and it is featuring a column-wheel flyback chronograph. At 2 and 4 o’clock we find the two chronograph pushers or the chronograph functions and the two push correctors at 9 o’clock for aligning the local time hand.
On the dial decoration we find horizontal embossing, and at 3 and 9 o’clock we find day and night indicators for local and home time respectively. The two oversized subdials contains a circular date scale at 12 o’clock and the chronograph 60-minute counter at 6 o’clock. The gold hands and the applied hour markers are treated with luminescent coating.
Beneath the elegant exterior the watch is powered by a brand new calibre visible through the sapphire crystal case back, the self-winding CH 28-520 with a 45-hour power reserve.
It can be yours for “only” US$ 57,300. For more info, please visit patek.com
