Patek Philippe replica Ref. 5980 Nautilus

Late years have seen one stylish pattern — blue dials — going ahead solid in the cheap replica watches world, and another — two-tone steel-and-gold looks — streaming again into vogue following a couple of years out of design. Both are in proof in the current week’s Watch to Watch, the new two-tone, chronograph adaptation of Patek Philippe’s extravagance sport watch, the Nautilus.

Patek Philippe presented the primary Nautilus, a perceived exemplary among game watches alongside the Rolex Daytona, Omega Seamaster, Heuer Carrera, and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, in 1976, and re-built it for advanced tastes in 2007. From that point forward, Patek has discharged a few variants of the Nautilus, with different intricacies (like a year ago’s form with a yearly schedule) and in various materials.

This model, assigned Reference 5980/1AR-001, is the first in the redid Nautilus family to consolidate stainless steel and rose gold, with gold utilized for the bezel, screw-down crown, and chronograph pushers. The arm jewelery has both steel and gold connections and the fold-over catch that is normal for the Nautilus. The case is 40.5 mm in width and water-impervious to 120 meters. Gold, treated with luminescent covering, is likewise utilized for the hour markers on the blue slope dial. The dial has a date window at 3 o’clock and a chronograph subdial at 6 o’clock that counts both minutes (up to 60) and hours (up to 12), while the focal chronograph hand clears around the dial.

The development, which can be seen through a sapphire window in the caseback, is Patek Philippe’s assembling Caliber CH 28-520 C, a programmed development fueling a date pointer and chronograph capacity. It is 30 mm in distance across and 6.63 mm thick, with 327 sections absolute, including 35 gems and 13 spans. Its Gyromax equalization sways at a recurrence of 28,800 vph (4 Hz). Like all Patek Philippe replica watches subsequent to 2009, this one swears off the really popular Geneva Hallmark for its own Patek Philippe Seal, which the organization says has much more stringent norms of value.

Patek Philippe Replica Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph

Patek Philippe Replica Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph

A few years ago, Patek Philippe Replica introduced a new Ref. 5980/1A with a white dial (for laymen: that’s the Nautilus Chronograph). We at Monochrome Patek Philippe Replica Watches were a bit surprised to discover, at Baselworld 2014, that Patek Philippe Replica had already discontinued the steel 5980/1A model and replaced it with a steel Nautilus Chronograph with a second time zone, like the one in the Aquanaut Travel Time Ref. 5164.Patek Philippe ref.5990/1A - live
That means that the 5980/1A-019 (the white-dial Nautilus Chrono) will have been in production for only two years. Since we’re talking about Patek Philippe Replica here, productions numbers are rather low, and this reference is now a very rare bird which we expect to become very collectible. Although the other steel 5980/1A models are not as rare (but super-rare compared to a Rolex Submariner, for instance), we would not be surprised to see their prices climb now that the demand can no longer be fulfilled at Patek Philippe Replica boutiques but only on the secondary market. But now, let’s take a look at the newbie in the Nautilus family, whose additional second-time-zone function works just like the one in the aforementioned Patek Philippe Replica Aquanaut Travel Time, introduced in 2011 .

On the left-hand side of the case are two pushers for changing the local time zone when you’re traveling. Design-wise, Patek Philippe Replica did very well here, because these pushers look like the typical “ears” of the Nautilus case. However, adding them forced Patek Philippe Replica to change the model’s typical two-part case for a more traditional three-part case. Although the entire case construction has changed, the diameter is still 40.5 mm and the case is still water-resistant to 120 meters. Also the overall case thickness is not much greater (the official data is not provided) than the 5980’s thickness of 12.6 mm. When we saw the first images, we “feared” the replica Patek Philippe watch would be too thick and too busy on the dial. After trying it on the wrist, we’re convinced that our fears were groundless.

On the dial, we see the chronograph register at 6 o’clock, and, similar to that on the Aquanaut Travel Time, it features a pointer-date, now positioned on the upper part of the dial. The date indication is connected to the local time, which is your travel destination. When traveling, it can be adjusted both forward and backward, to follow the date of the time zone where you are. To the left and right on the dial are two small apertures, which indicate day and night in both the local time zone and the home time zone. The chronograph pushers – to start, stop and reset to zero – are located on the left-hand side of the case, just like on the Nautilus Chronograph Ref. 5980/1A. Where the old 5980/1A had a 60-minute and 12-hour register for measuring elapsed time, the new ref. 5990/1A has just one 60-minute counter. While you won’t be able to measure how long that intercontinental flight took anymore, the new subdial is cleaner and easier to read.

The movement of the Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph, Caliber 28-520 C FUS, starts with the same base caliber as its predecessor; however, now it has an additional module for the two time zones (called “FUS”) — again, the same module used in the Aquanaut Travel Time. The retail price in Swiss Francs is CHF 47,000 (about $57,300), just a few thousand more than the steel Ref. 5980/1A. That’s still a lot of money, but we’re glad that Patek Philippe Replica didn’t set the price even higher. Despite the fact that the Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph is a great addition to the Nautilus collection, I will miss the 5980/1A, because of its sportier look. I still consider the 5980/1A to be the Magnum Opus of luxury sports fake watches.
