Patek Philippe’s new Aquanaut Luce “Rainbow” chronograph is the first in the range to feature a chronograph movement as well as the colours of the rainbow made from baguette diamonds and baguette sapphires. It is also the first self-winding Patek Philippe ladies’ chronograph, combining the best in fine watchmaking with high jewellery excellence.
Featuring a rose gold case, self-winding calibre CH 28-520, a vertical disc clutch, and a large 60-minute counter at 6 o’clock, this sporty elegant timepiece is both stylish and functional.
The octagonal bezel is adorned with two rows of baguette-cut gems. The inner row consists of 40 flawless rare white Top Wesselton diamonds (2.05 carat). The outer one, slightly angled, sports 40 sapphires in the colours of the rainbow (2.31 carat). Each of them was hand-picked to assure the perfect transition from one colour to the next.
The stones have an elaborate invisible setting technique in which the gems are horizontally notched on the lower facet. They can then be set on “metal rails” that are invisible from the outside. The gems also feature on the mother-of-pearl dial.
At 39.9mm this elegant watch features three straps in red, matte beige and matte white. The watch is delivered with all three straps, allowing the wearer to change it as they please via a simple process. To finish, the patented Patek Philippe fold-over clasp is adorned with ten baguette diamonds.
