If you are in the market for a youthful and dynamic luxury watch that is a bit sporty, then the Patek Philippe Aquanaut may be just the watch for you. This new timepiece now delivers chronograph movement, leading it to turn heads, especially among younger luxury watch collectors.
Patek Philippe has been on a path of appealing to a younger crowd. This new Patek Philippe chronograph wristwatch fits the bill. First debuted in 1997, the Patek Philippe Aquanaut is a newcomer to this luxury watchmaker’s product line.
You can get a “Tropical” orange strap version of the Patek Philippe Aquanaut, which also features a double-folding clasp. Also, this form has four independent catches, along with two side buttons. The design has proven to be incredibly reliable and easy to use. One of the great features of this wristwatch is the ability for the wrist size to be adjusted to match most wrist sizes.
To ensure there is greater stability, the strap ends are fixed with standard spring bars, although there are also two pins that provide additional stability. The orange strap is refreshing compared with what you are used to on other luxury timepieces.
Besides the strap, another central feature of this watch is the rounded octagonal bezel. However, the featured contrast goes seamlessly with the strap. The way light reflects off of the dial looks deeply black and light gray. The minute and hand hours are both made of white gold, while also sporting a luminescent coating for easier readability day or night. In fact, it’s quite a delightful contrast to have glowing luminescent green against the backdrop of the black background.
There is a selfwinding feature that provides an exceptionally high degree of accuracy that is expected these days. Also, the novel vertical disk clutch control is the only chronograph movement by this watchmaker that has this kind of clutch. This guarantees that there is no forward and backward skipping of the stopwatch.
There is also a flyback function that has made it exceptionally easy to precisely set this watch, down to the second. The stopwatch can get set starting at zero if there is an ongoing measurement, without getting automatically reset or restarted.
You will be pleased to find out that the selfwinding feature on the Patel Philippe Aquanaut includes a 21K gold rotor that delivers 55 hours of power. In fact, you may even be able to get a little more than this.
There is a monocrystalline form of silicon used on this timepiece that is lightweight, anti-magnetic, elastic, and resistant to corrosion, as well as impacts. It has been produced using a novel process called Deep Reaction Ion Etching. This allows the watch to have the precision of 1/1,000th, of a millimeter, which is extraordinary. Rate accuracy becomes optimized, with isochronism improved.
You can get this sport Patek Philippe Chronograph wristwatch in a stainless steel case that has been polished and brushed, offering water resistance for an astonishing 120 meters. If you are looking for a luxury watch with more youth, this is an excellent choice.
