Patek Philippe presented an incredibly desirable version of the Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph 5990 model during this year's edition of the Watches & Wonders exhibition…
Originally launched in 2014 in a stainless steel version, the latest iteration is accented with rose gold and equipped with a beautiful dial with a sunburst effect, which in a way unlocked and unleashed the full aesthetic potential of this model. Patek Philippe has managed to make the watch we already know well and love even better. The Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph 5990 / 1R-001 is incredibly beautiful. The rose gold version has retained its iconic 40.5 mm x 12.53 mm case shape, which is immediately recognizable thanks to the rounded octagonal base. The blue dial got the same symmetrical layout as the original, along with two sub-dials one above the other and a dual-zone AM / PM indication on both sides.
The Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph 5990 combines three complications - a flyback chronograph, a dual time zone and a date indicator. The crown that is screwed can be used for winding, but also for adjusting the time. The buttons on the right control the chronograph, while those located on the left can be used to adjust the skeletonized hand for the additional time zone indicator.
The watch is powered by a massive automatic caliber CH 28-530 C FUS whose thickness is 6.95 mm. The mechanism, which is visible from the back of the case, works at a frequency of 4 Hz and offers up to 55 hours of reserve energy. In addition, it comes with an integrated rose gold bracelet, with a clasp created from the same material. The price of this elegant novelty is 106,000 dollars.
