The First Time In The Series Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5968

Patek Philippe seems to have more ideas for the sports watch family. For example, the Golden Eagle series introduces perpetual calendar styles with advanced high-complexity functions, pushing the trend of high-end sports watch dressing to a new peak. Looking back. Golden Eagle’s brother, Aquanaut series, although it has been available for more than 20 years, the pace of PP’s development of new functional styles still seems conservative. Previously, it could only be roughly divided into three stitches and two time styles, but considering that it does For the potential worth of the entry model, so in 2018 we also unexpectedly but gladly discovered that the brand launched a new work with timing function Ref.5968A. On the one hand, the sports watch combined with timing function is logical, and at the same time, this series finally has the aforementioned two functions. There are more choices, and from the overall design of the watch, it is clear that Patek Philippe hopes to cut into the market of young ethnic groups and show a more lively vigor.

The watch face uses a black gradient design. The orange elements combined with the chronograph function are younger and more vibrant. Its six o’clock direction is a scoreboard instead of the common small seconds dial.

Feature one: the texture is still much higher than the average sports watch
Unlike the 2017 commemorative model, which inevitably uses a precious metal case, this time Ref. 5968A returns to the stainless steel material that echoes the positioning of the series. The appearance of the crown and shoulder guards is visually enhanced by the addition of a timer start and a reset button It looks a little down (in fact, it is only an illusion). It is more convenient to operate by using a large rectangular design. Aquanaut is more delicate than ordinary sports watches. For example, the surface of the case is alternately polished and satin. Sanding, combined with a rich three-dimensional impression through multiple cuts, is an unattainable height for ordinary sports watches.

Same as Nautilus 5740, Ref. 5968A also adopts Patek Philippe’s newly developed folding buckle system in 2018, which integrates Carrjojo Cross into the design to highlight the brand’s genes

Feature two: at six o’clock it is a scoring dial
The watch face dial is indispensable with a series of radial embossed patterns, but the black surface used in Ref.5968A has a little more gradation effect, giving the watch a more pleasing modern feel. In response to the new chronograph function of the watch, the new changes in the faceplate include a 60-minute scoring plate in the six o’clock direction, a second hand chronograph second hand, and a chronograph scale is also added to the scale ring on the periphery of the faceplate. These newly added details are in orange, which stands out against the black gradient background. This one is different from most chronographs in that it directly discards the hour chronograph and small seconds. Although similar binocular or three-eye designs are still common configurations of chronographs at this stage, considering practicality In fact, it is not so absolute, so Patek Philippe boldly got rid of these burdens and let Aquanaut’s first chronograph quickly establish its own recognition with the clearest attitude.

The CH 28-520 C movement uses a combination of a column wheel and a vertical clutch. The advantage is that it improves the accuracy of timing and reduces the chance of wear of parts. Its chronograph second hand can even be used as a large second hand.

Feature 3: CH 28-520 C calibre that can display the large chronograph seconds as seconds
Ref.5968A is equipped with a CH 28-520 C automatic movement, which has been previously applied to works such as the Nautilus series, so it is no stranger to people who like Patek Philippe. This movement has a traditional column wheel device. At the same time, it also combines the relatively recent invention of the vertical clutch mechanism, which can theoretically avoid the hand shaking when the timing function is started, and because the vertical clutch can minimize the friction between parts, so even if the center axis seconds hand Use as a large second hand will not accelerate the wear of the movement parts, you can use it with peace of mind (this is why the watch does not have a small seconds dial like a normal chronograph). Moreover, the timing of the CH 28-520 C has a flyback function. In the case of continuous timing, its practicability is relatively high. In general, the Aquanaut timing function has all aspects of the initial experience, making PP sports watch preferred. People have a reason to shoot again.

The sub-dial at 9 o’clock displays the day of the week and the day / night indication; the second sub-dial at 3 o’clock displays the month, and the leap year displays below; the third sub-dial at 6 o’clock has a small second and moon phase display , And can also indicate a longer period of time, only one day needs to be corrected every 122.6 years. All calendar displays can be advanced individually or simultaneously via the hidden main button at 10 o’clock.

Lange watch factory homemade L922.1SAX-0-MAT movement

   When LANGEMATIKPERPETUAL came out in 2001, it was the world’s first Lange automatic watch with a large calendar display and perpetual calendar function. The L922.1Sax-0-Mat automatic winding movement is equipped with a patented zero-setting device. When the crown is pulled out, the balance wheel stops and the second hand returns to the zero position, simplifying the time setting process. The 21K gold two-way self-winding oscillating weight with external platinum 950 centrifugal pieces can provide a watch with a power reserve of up to 46 hours for short periods of wear. In addition, the oscillating weight is set on the Lange 3/4 splint of the movement. As a result, the watch has a slimmer appearance. The escapement, hand-engraved balance wheel splint, and classic gooseneck spinner are all in sight. The sapphire crystal case back reveals all the finely modified details of the movement; the movement has been assembled twice and fine-tuned from five directions.
