Watch and Brand News Introducing: Patek Philippe 5968A-01 Aquanaut Chronograph Details & Pricing Baselworld 2018

The Aquanaut collection embodies contemporary design with sporty elements. For the first time in the collection history a chronograph has been added, matching the personality of the dynamic watch.

Inside the watch is the CH 28-520 C caliber, a self-winding flyback chronograph movement melding tradition with innovation. It combines classic column-wheel control with the modern, vertical disc clutch which prevents hand bounce and rebound when starting the chronograph. Because this clutch is virtually friction-free, the sweep chronograph hand can also be used as a continuously running seconds hand.

The new 5968A-001 is also being released in steel with a black embossed dial with contrasting orange details on the chronograph hands.
