Up Close With Patek Philippe’s Three New Nautilus Models

HighLifeChannel October 24, 2022

On the heels of the debut of the highly-anticipated new Patek Philippe Ref. 5811/1G-001, Patek released three additional Nautilus models. A nod to the brand’s cult Nautilus model, Patek’s three additions are just what the industry needed.

One of Patek Philippe’s rare steel watches, the Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph, has returned with a new blue sunburst dial with the signature black-gradient rim. Powering the timepiece is still the Patek Philippe self-winding caliber CH 28-520 C FUS movement, combining three complications: a flyback chronograph, a Travel Time function that has two time zones with two separate hour hands with the skeletonized hand showing the home time, and an analog date at 12 o’clock which is synchronized with local time.

Exuding unparalleled elegance and sophistication is the Ref. 5712/1R-001 Nautilus is sporting an analog date, moon phases, and a power reserve. Catapulting this timepiece into a new echelon is the palette pairing of the rose gold 40mm case and bracelet with the rich brown sunburst dial — ultimately creating a warm tonal piece. Housed within the watch is the self-winding 240 PS IRM C LU caliber with a maximum power reserve of 48 hours.

Last but certainly not least is Patek Philippe’s take on haute joaillerie with the new ladies ladies’ Nautilus adorned with precious gems. Designed in luxurious rose gold, the octagonal bezel is set with two rows of 68 spessartite baguettes that feature a double color gradation from cognac at 12 and 6 o’clock to champagne at 9 and 3 o’clock. On the dial, the hourm markers are made of ogive-shaped spessartite baguettes in cognac hues. And for the ultimate touch, the timepiece has the iconic horizontally embossed dial but with a subtle wave for feminine sophistication. Inside, the 7118/1300R Nautilus is equipped with the self-winding 324 S C movement, as seen through the sapphire caseback.
