Patek Philippe Sophisticated Research has an 18K white-gold case measuring 40.8 mm in diameter and 11 mm thick and water-resistant to 120 meters. It really is equipped with all the cleverly conceived dual time-zone function that Patek has used in preceding models which include the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time and Nautilus Travel Time, and its self-winding movement characteristics, for the first time, two major technical innovations: an optimized Spiromax balance spring with an inner boss; as well as the so-called flexible mechanism for the time-zone settings. The watch will probably be issued in a restricted edition of 500 pieces.
The watch consists of Patek’s automatic caliber 324 S C FUS, which within this model has been enhanced with two innovations created by the Patek Philippe Advanced Investigation laboratory. The first will be the Spiromax balance spring created of Silinvar, which can be equipped with two terminal curves and optimized with an inner boss. It improves the isochronism with the balance in the vertical orientations from the watch. Consequently, its price accuracy ranges among -1 and +2 seconds every day – equivalent for the precision of knock off Patek Philippe‘s tourbillon watches.
The second innovation requires the time-zone setting device, which replaces the usual pivoting articulations with so-called ‘compliant’ or flexible mechanisms. This device, which is composed of only 12 filigreed steel parts with various intersecting leaf springs – as compared to the 37 parts utilised in the far more standard mechanism ?a transmits the actuations with the two time-zone pushers towards the local time show.
This Aquanaut displays the neighborhood time and date also as a second time zone (normally the wearer’s dwelling time) and also a day/night indicator for each time zones. Two pushers within the left-hand case flank handle the settings. On trips this replica Patek Philippe across various time zones, the local time hour hand could be adjusted forward or backward in one-hour measures. Inside the method, the day/night indicators and, if applicable, the date are also changed. When the owner is headed east, the nearby time is set with all the pusher at eight o’clock. The pusher at 10 o’clock corrects the regional time on westbound trips.
The Aquanaut Travel Time Ref. 5650 capabilities a vibrant blue dial adorned with the collection’s familiar embossed pattern and light-to-dark colour gradation. At 9 o’clock, the replica watch have carved out an ample aperture via which the silvery steel flexible mechanism – with its four crossed leaf springs, meticulously finished surfaces, and chambered edges – are on dynamic display.
