At this year’s Basel Watch Fair, Patek Philippe launched the first Nautilus Perpetual Calendar watch to create a casual sports watch with ultra-complex craftsmanship. Patek Philippe has added a perpetual calendar and moon phase function to this sporty watch, which will be rigorous. The watchmaking technique is perfectly reflected in this watch, combined with the ruggedness and sophisticated technology of sports watches, attracting a large number of watch fans.

Complex in the Movement, Classic in Appearance

Complicated Timepieces with Durability

Patek Philippe’s Nautilus collection was born in 1976. This perpetual calendar watch is the first super-complex watch of the series. With the classic Patek Philippe sports watch and the ultra-thin movement, it presents an extremely slim perpetual sports watch.

The case is made of 18K white gold, the visual effect of the object is more exquisite, the bright luster and the iconic case design inspired by the porthole is conspicuous and has developed into one of the characteristics of the Patek Philippe brand sports watch. The vertical satin matte contrasts with the polished chamfer, highlighting the iconic design of the bezel, with a diameter of 40 mm. Compared to the perpetual calendar, the case with a thickness of 8.32 mm is extremely slim, which is also light to wear.

The crown is also made of 18K white gold, with the screw-in design, it guarantees the waterproof performance of the watch. It is engraved with the Patek Philippe Calatrava classic logo and surrounded by non-slip texture for precise timing.

The blue dial is accented with the iconic horizontal embossed pattern of the Nautilus men’s watch, very classic. And it has the same blue sunburst design as the 2016 Nautilus 40th Anniversary Watch. Under the illumination, it will have different visual effects. Compared with the previous models, it has been modified with a wide hour and minute hands, and a platinum-coated solid time scale with a fluorescent coating for easy reading in the dark.

The pointer-type perpetual calendar uses three auxiliary dials: the week at the 9 o’clock position and the 24-hour sub-dial, the month and leap year display at the 3 o’clock position, the date and moon phase display at the 6 o’clock position, evenly arranged on the octagon dial. A practical calendar device automatically recognizes the number of days in each month, even February 29, which will appear in the leap year. The moon phase display is extremely accurate: the moon phase device will not differ from the actual moon line position by one day every 122 years. Perpetual calendar adjustment: Weekly adjustment at 9 o’clock, date adjustment between 11 o’clock and 12 o’clock, moon phase adjustment at 6 o’clock position, very unique, equipped with clever deflection system, it is a perfect blend between the Nautilus series watches and the case design.

The 18K white gold bracelet is delicate and beautiful, perfectly connecting to the case. The matte lateral links and polished central links line up orderly, this watch combines Patek Philippe’s new patented folding clasp. This new patent has 4 independent locks, which effectively prevent any two parts of the buckle from accidentally loosening, reducing the unnecessary damage of the watch.

The interior is equipped with Caliber 240 ultra-thin self-winding movement, embedded 22K gold mini automatic disc and extremely thin perpetual calendar module. The water-resistant is up to 60 meters, so that it can meet people’s daily needs. The case back is designed with sapphire crystal, which can be used to enjoy the complex structure and fine craft of the movement.

 

Summary: Patek Philippe presents a rich and diverse world of watches with its advanced watchmaking craftsmanship, demonstrating the modern urban style and the power of continuous advancement. This ultra-complex sports watch is made with top-quality craftsmanship to reward the public.

The “Follow Me” micro-movie starred by French actress Camille Cottin and directed by Eloïse Lang is full of humor, vitality and pride.

Inspired by the J12 watch and its hard, high-tech precision ceramics, this film shows the feminine charm of a contemporary woman. She is very individual and always unpredictable. She is a dynamic and true heroine!

The micro-movie is scored by Clara Luciani, and her song “The Grenade” is filled with the bass line that makes people want to stop but cannot, giving the film a sense of rhythm.

Like any of Chanel’s masterpieces, the J12 watch seems to have become a symbol of timelessness. As an absolutely pure classic in the eyes of the public, J12 has already surpassed time and become an immortal legend.

In 2000, the J12 watch took the lead in bold use of high-tech precision ceramics. At that time, J12 watch designer Jacques Helu was constantly thinking about how to make black reach an extreme noble? How to make black shine with extraordinary luster? How to make black show the beauty of low-key elegance? Inspired by the streamlined shape of the rowing boat in the nautical world, Chanel developed a unique material consisting of zirconium dioxide and cerium, mixed with pigments and binders, calcined at temperatures above 1000 °C. This high-tech precision ceramic can be obtained after several precise and rigorous processes and multiple machine grinding and polishing. This high-tech precision ceramic exudes a deep black luster, constant and sturdy, and it was unveiled at the Chanel Watch Jewelry Store in Fontaine Square, Paris at the first time. The ceramic bracelet is like a second layer of skin that fits the wrist, naturally sensing body temperature, not as chilly as metal. Ceramics, in the field of watchmaking, have never achieved such precision and detail in the past.

The number 12, which symbolizes the excellence of watchmaking, together with the lucky numbers such as N°5, is an important role in the Chanel Hall and an indelible milestone in the development of the brand.

The J12 watch was a great success once it was launched, and was praised by the international media as “a new classic of the 21st century watch”. The amazing charm of J12 has inspired Chanel’s watchmaking factory in Switzerland to have a higher creative enthusiasm and bolder creative ideas.

In 2003, the pure white J12 white watch was born. White is the color that Chanel is extremely fond of. The J12 white watch, like the black J12, was very popular at the beginning and led to another wave of white watches. In 2011, Chanel continued to boldly innovate and launched the J12 Chromatic watch, which made the bracelet look like a stormy sky. Chromatic captures and reflects light, creating a unique radiant glow that produces a magical glow effect.

Today, 18 years after the introduction of the J12, Chanel continues to introduce innovative variations, inlaid with jewellery, matte design, limited edition, and even the world’s unique collection. No matter how the change is performed, the concise and modern Chanel J12 watch is always a masterpiece in the field of watchmaking.
