which watch we're wearing
The Rolex Daytona is perhaps the most iconic chronograph watch of the twentieth century and with good reason. Designed and introduced in 1963 to meet the demands of professional racing drivers, its highly-reliable chronograph and bezel with tachymetric scale allows drivers to perfectly measure speeds up to 400 miles an hour. Few things have changed since its introduction, but there are some elements that mark the 2016 116500LN model out from its predecessor.
We’re privileged enough to see numerous examples of the world’s most luxurious watches here at Time 4 Diamonds, but once in a while we have the chance to see something extra-special and this superb Audemars Piguet Perpetual Calendar (26574OR.OO.1220OR.02) in Rose Gold is one of them!
As the trademark slogan goes, “You never actually own a Patek Philippe, you just look after it for the next generation”. After nearly 170 years in the luxury timepiece industry, Patek Philippe occupy a very special place in the hearts of horologists world-wide, and with good reason. The Patek Philippe brand is a byword for the quality and craftsmanship that these stunning watches embody, and the qualities are nowhere more prominent than in the Nautilus line.
Patek Philippe revisted some of its most iconic bestsellers at this year’s Baselworld. One of the most talked about new launches includes the Aquanaut Travel Time Ref 5650 G, created in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Aquanaut collection. The piece, available in a limited series of 500 pieces, features two of Patek’s new innovations – the Spiromax balance sprint made of Silinvar and a compliant mechanism that’s used to set the second time zone in time-zone watches.
