WHEN SIZE MATTERS. In the matter of timepieces larger displays caught more attention, and the 20th-anniversary edition of Patek Philippe’s Aquanaut takes this route
Being a cousin of the famed Nautical collection, Patek Philippe‘s luxury yet sporty line strikes a different chord owing to its light, durable composite strap and the dial’s distinctive engraving—whose blue shades graduate from bright in the center to darker on the side. Now, the Aquanaut also arrives in its biggest size ever, 42.2mm (excluding the crown), and in white gold, a first in the collection’s two-decade history. Championing an automatic in-house movement caliber 324 S C, this dive watch has 35 to 45 hours of power reserve with a 21K-gold rotor visible from the transparent case-back. Moreover, this exceptionally elegant model can really withstand water pressure up to 120 meters.
