Two new products with pure gold bezels

   Patek Philippe launched the Nautilus women’s self-winding rose gold diamond watch in 2015. A new version with a solid gold bezel is now available, adding a new addition to this collection of women’s watches combining classic style with sporty qualities.

   The case has a water resistance of 60 meters. It uses the well-known design of the first men’s watch of the Nautilus series in 1976. The two slender side lugs mimic the locks and hinges on the porthole. The octagonal bezel is rounded and inverted. Corner edges. The bezel and the top of the case are decorated with satin patterns, and the sides are mirror-polished to form a subtle contrast effect, highlighting the delicate structure. The dial is available in two colors: brilliant white and honey gold. The gentle corrugated embossed pattern is a signature feature of women’s watches in the Nautilus collection, giving the watch an outstanding personality. The three-dimensional blocks, as well as the hour markers and hands, are made of rose gold with a fluorescent coating to ensure legibility. The rose gold three-dimensional frame makes the date window at 6 o’clock more eye-catching.

   These two Patek Philippe watches are an example of a new style of casual softness and elegance. Through the sapphire crystal case, you can admire the exquisite hand decoration of the Caliber324SC self-winding movement (beveled and polished plywood edges, Geneva stripes, rounded Geneva-striped automatic plate and Calatrava doji engraving pattern, etc.).

   The rose gold bracelet combines polishing with satin decoration, and a new folding clasp with built-in adjustment allows the wearer to increase the length of the bracelet by 2 to 4 mm to ensure more comfortable wearing. When operating, just pull one of the two bracelets or pull both ends at the same time, even if the watch is already worn on the wrist.

   The new Ref.7118 / lR-001 and 7118 / lR-010 (gold bezel models) will join the Ref.7118 / 1200R rose gold diamond bezel models.
