Everything You Need To Know About The New Patek Philippe Aquanaut Collection

First launched in 1997, Patek Philippe’s Aquanaut collection was inspired by the brand’s beloved Nautilus line, targeting a similarly young and sporty crowd. This year, only a few months after releasing four new Nautilus models, the Genevan watch manufacturer has released seven new versions of the Aquanaut.

The new Aquanaut collection contains five new models of the Aquanaut Luce and two new models of the Aquanaut Chronograph. Fittingly released on the 15th year anniversary of the Aquanaut Luce, the five new Luce’s are enlarged and blinged up versions on the previous models. The increase from 35.6mm to 38.8mm opens up a new unisex market for the traditionally female collection. With three stainless steel models and two in rose gold, the watches are available in black, white or khaki green and feature a bezel set with diamonds.

The Aquanaut Luce

The new collection also features the Aquanaut Luce’s first dual time zone watch, the Aquanaut Luce Travel Time. The stunning new design uses a solid hour hand to display the local time and relies on the brand’s signature skeletonized hand to show the hours of the second time zone. When the wearer is back at home, they can make the skeletonized hand disappear underneath the solid hour hand so that only one time zone is displayed again. With a bezel set with 48 brilliant-cut diamonds, weighing over a carat, the watch offers a dually stylish and practical design for the modern, globetrotting woman.

The Aquanaut Chronograph

The last two models in the Aquanaut collection are the two renewed Chronograph models. First released in 2018, the new 42.2 mm Chronograph models are distinctly masculine, with the tones resembling traditional maritime and military colours. Offered in midnight blue and khaki green with white-gold cases, the watches boast the iconic flyback chronograph movement with a CH 28-520 C caliber and 60-minute counter.
