Check Out All Patek Philippe’s 2021 Newness

The watchmaker showed what’s new in Nautilus, revamped Calatrava models, and a brand-new perpetual calendar.

At Watches and Wonders Geneva 2021 Patek Philippe presented four new versions of the Nautilus, including this haute joaillerie version with 12.69 carats of diamond pavé.
Geneva—Patek Philippe had lots to show at the recently concluded Watches and Wonders Geneva 2021, which was held virtually. 
 
On display was the “Nautilus” range. 
 
Patek Philippe previously confirmed that 2021 will be the last year it will produce the stainless steel Ref. 5711/1A, but it has something exciting in store for that version of the sports watch before it’s gone. 
 
When the Nautilus collection launched in 1976, stainless steel was still a newer concept for a luxury timepiece and accomplishing the 120-meter water resistance was a challenging feat for a regularly produced watch. 
 
Today, Patek Philippe offers 25 Nautilus versions for men and women, in soon-to-be-discontinued stainless steel, as well as rose gold, white gold, and a combination of steel and rose gold, with metal bracelets or alligator leather straps. 
 
The Nautilus’ next chapter, as unveiled at Watches and Wonders, is four new versions of existing editions.

This stainless steel Ref. 5711/1A-014 with olive green dial sells for $34,893.
This stainless steel Ref. 5711/1A-014 with olive green dial sells for $34,893.
 
For the first time, olive green is introduced into the collection, gracing the dial of the Ref. 5711/1A-014 in stainless steel. The green dial has a “sunburst finish” that assures legibility, the company said. 
 
As it has been since 2019, the Ref. 5711 is powered by the self-winding caliber 26-330 S C movement, that has a stop-seconds mechanism allowing the watch to be set with one-second accuracy. 
 
The olive green sunburst dial replaces the Ref. 5711/1A-010 blue-black gradated dial.

The Ref. 5711/1300A-001 is crafted in stainless steel with new olive green dial and 32 diamonds on the bezel. It costs $94,624.

Taking the style up a notch is another stainless steel Ref. 5711 with olive green dial, this one with 32 diamonds set in the bezel. 
 
The Ref. 5711/1300A-001 is unique in combining stainless steel with diamonds. The 32 baguette-cut stones are flawless and F or G in color, weighing a combined 3.6 carats. 
 
To align with the Nautilus’ signature octagonal bezel with rounded corners, each baguette diamond is cut with a slightly trapezoidal shape. 
 
It’s powered by the same self-winding caliber 26-330 S C movement as the non-diamond edition.

The Nautilus Ref. 5990/1R-001 sells for $106,452.

The Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph Ref. 5990/1R-001 is a rose gold version of its predecessor, which has a flyback chronograph, travel time function with two time zones reading “Local” and “Home,” and an analog date at 12 o’clock synchronized with local time.
 
The rose gold version has a blue sunburst dial, with the hour markers and hands in rose gold with luminous coatings.
 
The watch utilizes the self-winding chronograph caliber CH 28-520 C FUS movement.

The haute joaillerie Ref. 7118/1450R-001 costs $366,667.

There is also a new haute joaillerie Nautilus model. 
 
It’s rendered in rose gold with diamond “snow-setting”—a random pattern of pavé stones of slightly differing sizes intended to minimize the appearance of metal—on the case, bezel and bracelet. 
 
With a 35.2 mm case, the ladies Ref. 7118/1450R-001 features 2,553 flawless F- or G-color brilliant-cut diamonds weighing a total of 12.69 carats. 
 
It’s powered by a self-winding caliber 324 S movement, and like the aforementioned new Nautilus models, has a sapphire crystal case back.

Patek Philippe also announced an updated design and new movement for a brand classic, the Calatrava.
 
Launched in 1932, the classic round wristwatch was Patek Philippe’s first model with a reference number, Ref. 96. 
 
It was designed according to Bauhaus principles, that function should determine an object’s form. 
 
In the near-century since its introduction, the Calatrava has come in a variety of sizes and styles, with different mechanics and features.

The Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 6119R-001 costs $29,570.
The Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 6119R-001 costs $29,570.
 
Now, Ref. 6119 revives the guilloched hobnail pattern on the bezel that Patek Philippe calls “Clous de Paris,” not seen in the Calatrava collection for a few years. 
 
It’s offered in a rose gold case with silvery-grained dial (Ref. 6119R-001) with chocolate brown alligator strap, or white gold with charcoal gray dial on a black alligator strap (Ref. 6119G-001).
 
The new references features is slightly larger at 39 mm with faceted applied gold hour markers and dauphine-style hours and minutes hands. 
 
They utilize the new manually wound 30-255 PS movement with 65-hour power reserve, which offers exceptional power yet slender architecture.

The Ref. 4947/1A-001 sells for $47,904.

Patek Philippe patented its annual calendar mechanism in 1996, which only requires one manual correction per year.
 
Available in different timepieces over the years, for the first time it’s in a round Calatrava case in stainless steel, the Ref. 4947/1A-001. 
 
At a unisex 38 mm, it has a totally integrated steel bracelet with five rows of fully polished links. 
 
The watch features a night-blue dial with a horizontal and vertical satin finish, and a sapphire crystal case back showing the self-winding caliber 324 S QA LU movement.

The ladies’ Calatrava Ref. 4997/200G-001 costs $36,667.

The ladies’ Calatrava Ref. 4997/200G-001 has a slightly larger diameter (35 mm) than its 33 mm Ref. 4897 predecessors. 
 
The case and hands are crafted in white gold. 
 
It features a dial with guilloched concentric waves coated in layer upon layer of transparent midnight blue lacquer. A total of 76 round-cut internally flawless, F- and G-color diamonds adorn the bezel. 
 
The watch is powered by an ultra-thin self-winding caliber 240 movement replacing the previous manual one. 
 
The strap, in brushed calfskin with a satin-like finish, matches the midnight blue dial.

The Patek Philippe Ref. 5236P-001 with platinum case and one-line day, date and month display will set a watch lover back $130,108.
The Patek Philippe Ref. 5236P-001 with platinum case and one-line day, date and month display will set a watch lover back $130,108.
 
Brand new to the Patek Philippe stable is a perpetual calendar with a patented one-line display, showing the day, date and month in a large single aperture at 12 o’clock. 
 
It boasts the highly complex, new self-winding, ultra-thin movement 31-260 PS QL, for which the watchmaker has applied for three patents.
 
The new caliber is in a 41.3 mm platinum case with a vertical satin-finished blue dial with a black-gradient rim. 
 
A sapphire crystal case back showcases the watch’s expert engineering, though it also comes with a solid platinum back. It has a navy blue alligator strap.
