Prestige Hong Kong - Tic Talk - - INDUSTRY | BY THE NUMBERS -

Patek Philippe launched the Aqua­naut in 1997, making it 20 years since this rounded oc­tag­o­nal cre­ation first made waves. Basel­world 2017 ush­ered in the Aqua­naut Travel Time Ref. 5650G "Patek Philippe Ad­vanced Re­search" in a lim­ited edi­tion run of 500 pieces. It's packed with in­no­va­tions, such as an open dial to show­case the ground-push­ing "com­pli­ant (flex­i­ble) mech­a­nism in steel", used for set­ting the sec­ond time zone. It’s also the first watch by Patek to com­bine this fea­ture with a sil­i­con bal­ance spring.
