Size Does Mat­ter

DA MAN - - Watches -

The ti­tle above has al­ways rung true in the case of fine time­pieces, es­pe­cially for this year’s 20th-an­niver­sary edi­tion of the Aqua­naut from Patek Philippe. Be­ing a cousin of the famed Nau­ti­cal col­lec­tion, this lux­ury yet sporty line strikes a dif­fer­ent chord ow­ing to its light, durable com­pos­ite strap and the dial’s dis­tinc­tive en­grav­ing—whose blue shades grad­u­ate from bright in the cen­ter to darker on the side. Now, it also ar­rives in its biggest size ever, 42.2mm (ex­clud­ing the crown), and in white gold, a first in the col­lec­tion’s two-decade his­tory. Cham­pi­oning an au­to­matic in-house move­ment cal­iber 324 S C, this dive watch has 35 to 45 hours of power re­serve with a 21K-gold ro­tor vis­i­ble from the trans­par­ent case-back. More­over, this ex­cep­tion­ally el­e­gant model can re­ally with­stand wa­ter pres­sure up to 120 me­ters.
