wiss luxury watch manufacturer Patek Philippe’s latest Ladies’ Nautilus models showcase the brand’s gemsetting artistry and innovative use of colour.
The Ladies’ Nautilus Haute Joaillerie model 7118/1452G features a dial, case, crown and bracelet entirely paved with 1,500 brilliant-cut diamonds (6.53 carats) and 876 rubies (6.58 carats).
The refined snow-setting technique was chosen for this model to achieve incomparable sparkle and radiance while the presence of rubies on the bezel, dial and central bracelet links enhances the iconic design which includes a porthole-inspired case and integrated bracelet featuring three rows of links.
Brilliant-cut diamonds set in the Nautilus wave pattern distinguish the white gold dial, while easy legibility is ensured by ogival-shaped, white gold hour-markers set with rubies and hour/minute hands featuring white luminescent coating.
The 35.2mm-diameter case, also crafted in white gold, houses a self-winding 26-330S calibre and meticulous finishing is visible through a transparent sapphire caseback.
A patented Patek Philippe fold-over clasp secured by four independent catches is used for the bracelet ensuring optimum comfort. The new model joins the collection’s rose and white gold versions and is also available as Reference 7118/1451G-001 with diamonds and blue sapphires and Reference 7118/1453G-001 with diamonds and emeralds.
The second offering to highlight is the 7010/1R-013 which boasts a purple lacquered, wave patterned dial, 32mm-diameter gold case and rose gold bracelet.
The model is also available in a new rose gold version featuring a purple lacquered dial and a composite strap with matching fabric motif (Reference 7010R-013).
Ensuring excellent legibility in any light, the ogival-shaped hour-markers, applied Arabic numerals and alphastyle hour/minute hands bear a white luminescent coating while the date is displayed at three o’clock.
A row of 46 Top Wesselton Pure brilliant-cut diamonds (0.8-carat) dazzles along the bezel while the bracelet, with its patented Patek Philippe fold-over clap, displays contrasting finishes – satin-brushed with a polished bevelled edge on the outer links and polished on the inner links.
This model is also the first Patek Philippe ladies’ watch to feature the new lockable adjustment system.
The mechanical components of the quartz E 23-250 S C calibre are finished to the same high standards as those of Patek Philippe mechanical calibres.
