The new Aquanaut Chronograph Ref. The 5968A-001 is equipped with the CH 28-520 C/528 movement, an automatic winding flyback chronograph movement that combines tradition and innovation. It has a classic column wheel and a modern vertical disc clutch, which prevents the hand from rebounding in either direction when the chronograph starts. Since the clutch has almost no friction, the chronograph hand can also be used as a continuously running second hand. The power reserve is 45 to 55 hours.

The appearance of the watch is very attractive, and the chronograph function has been successfully integrated into Aquanaut’s typical

The 60-minute counter echoes the typical outline of a slightly rounded octagonal bezel. The large button of the chronograph is directly adjacent to the two nuts to protect the screw-in crown.

The orange chronograph display (large chronograph hands, quarter-second scale of the peripheral railway minute scale, 60-minute counter) contrasts with the black dial with embossed patterns.

Gold figures coated with luminescent compounds and two luminous baton-style hands enhance clarity.

Patek Philippe (Patek Philippe) provided two composite straps. The black strap is a standard issue. The orange dial highlights the striking color. To increase comfort, Patek Philippe equipped this waterproof and sturdy strap with a new Aquanaut folding clasp with four independent locks.

This is Patek Philippe’s first new watch in 2020 referee. 6007A-001 Calatrava celebrates the opening of the company’s new manufacturing facility in Geneva.

After the cancellation of Baselworld and the Geneva-based Museum of Watches & Wonders (formerly known as “SIHH”), which was only available online, this year’s watch industry experienced a creepy silence. When will Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Tudor release their new products? The answer is of course: whenever these three brands feel like it.

The 6007A-001 was designed to celebrate the opening of the new building in Maison, Jamestown, and its dial features a gorgeous new blue dial with external minute and internal hour tracks, and white Arabic Index, and smaller concentric railway tracks with triangular hour markers. Inside the dial is a gray-blue “carbon” style with a cross-hatched texture, while the date hole at 3 o’clock and a set of painted platinum batons tie the dial together. Its appearance is set in a 40 mm polished steel case, with a modern feel, yet it can be traced back to the history of the Calatrava series in the 1930s.

This watch is powered by the self-winding 324 SC movement, and is equipped with a calf leather blue leather strap, white decorative seams and pin buckles. The sapphire case is engraved with the cross of Catatrava (the long-term symbol of Patek Philippe) and the words “New Manufacture 2019”.
