First glance at the new watches of Baselworld 2014 

BaselWorld 2014 let’s go! 

More than 140,000m² exhibition space, 1,460 exponents and 150,000 visitors expected during the 

week of the show. 

This year, the watchmaker Patek Philippe is one of the first watchmakers to announce its new 

timepieces. 

The Swiss Manufacture introduces 5 new chronographs with perpetual calendars, but also a new 

annual calendar chronograph, and also a brand new version of its legendary Nautilus model

 

Two new steel chronographs 

Patek Philippe unveiled the chronograph model and the Nautilus Chronograph Time Travel during the 

press conference of the first day of BaselWorld 2014. 

La “Maison” Patek Philippe produced a new stainless steel model inspired by the previous Annual 

Calendar Chronograph (Ref. 5960/1A-001). 

This Chronograph was launched for the first time in 2006 with a platinum version.

Patek Philippe is not well-known for making stainless steel watches, except for their sporty 

collections such as Nautilus and Aquanaut models. Thus, the new yearly calendar containing the 

automatic caliber CH 28-520 IRM QA 24 will certainly tickle the curiosity of many Patek aficionados

The very masculine dial gives an impression of depth thanks to the black color on the hour markers 

placed around the chronograph. The black color is also used on hours and minutes facets (coated 

with Super – LumiNova) on the 12 hours counter hand but also the reserve. 

 A bright red signal is located on the central chronograph hand and on the 60 minutes counter hand. 

To complete the look, the Ref. 5960/1A Annual Calendar Chronograph watch is equipped with a 

folding clasp bracelet in stainless steel. 

You can acquire this beautiful timepiece for the amount of $ 54,800! 

 

A reissued classic 

Another newcomer in the family of sporting luxury watches is the Patek Philippe Nautilus 

Chronograph Time Travel watch (ref. 5990/1A-001). This new issue is a modern interpretation of a 

classic Patek Philippe modelaunched in 1976. It combines for the first time a chronograph and a dual 

time function.

The two markers adjust the time zone. They are also perfectly integrated at 9 am on the side of the 

case to maintain the contours of the classic case of the NautilusPatek Philippe artisans also moved 

the two chronograph push-button closer to the crown to achieve a greater easiness in their use. 

The new automatic movement is the CH 28-520 C FUS Caliber. It can be admired through the 

sapphire glass of the case. A bracelet with folding clasp in stainless steel rounds off the whole. 

 Nautilus Chronograph Ref. 5990/1A will be sold for a price of $ 57.300. In addition to these two new chronographs, Patek Philippe has also launched several models of 

timepieces with a perpetual calendar complication
