replica Patek Philippe Watches Nautilus Ref. 5740 – The Nautilus We Must Own

One of the surprises at Baselworld 2018 was Patek Philippe’s decision to add a grand complication model to the Nautilus collection, specifically a perpetual calendar. Or is it? The Nautilus with complications is an old story (travel times, chronographs, annual calendars have all been featured over the years), and the idea of a "timeless" was being heavily promoted by the pre-Basel rumor mill. Therefore, when Patek Philippe launched the Ref. 5740, there was a distinct feeling of "surprise - what surprise?"

This movement is one of the greatest in Patek Philippe’s history: the ultra-thin automatic caliber 240 Q – also present in the current series of Calatrava case models. 5327. It is essentially the same movement introduced in the landmark Ref. 5327. The 3940 was created in the mid-1980s and has been continuously improved over the years. These improvements included the Gyromax balance wheel and Spiromax (silicon) hairspring. The perpetual calendar display uses hands to indicate the day of the week, date, month and leap year, as well as the moon phase and 24-hour display. replica watches for sale

The white gold case measures 40 mm (diagonally, from 10 to 4 o'clock), has a screw-down crown that helps ensure water resistance to 60 meters, and has a white gold case with a folding clasp. Watch chain.

wear on wrist Even though there's a lot going on on the dial (and below) for a Nautilus, this is still every inch a Nautilus. In fact, what's really remarkable is that its case design (which has barely been modified since its original creation by Gérald Genta in 1976) is so solid that even the information-rich three-register display doesn't compromise its clarity and cohesion.

The horizontally ribbed dial – the same clear blue as the 40th Anniversary model, with the usual (subtle) sunray brushing – anchors these displays nicely. As with all caliber 240 Q models, the subdials are arranged very intuitively so information is easy to absorb. The combined date and moon phase dial at 6 o’clock is larger than the other two dials, adding weight and balance to the overall structure. Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon

The 5740 feels great on the wrist - nicely weighted, beautifully balanced and perfectly sized. Fortunately, Patek Philippe resisted the temptation to go with a 42mm diameter for the 40th Anniversary series (if it was indeed tempted) and stuck with 40mm. Such a powerful design doesn't require big, noisy dimensions. And it's slim. At just 8.43mm, it’s over a millimeter thinner than the Calatrava 5327 version of the QP, and a tad thicker than the “simple” 5711 (which measures 8.3mm). (For further comparison, its thickness falls between the 8.10mm thick Vacheron Constantin QP and the 9.5mm thick AP Royal Oak Perpetual.)

The elegant arrangement of the calendar correction pushers (distributed around the lugs and “lugs” of the case) is barely noticeable at first. But that's exactly what Patek Philippe likes to make in its creations: subtle visual improvements that involve seemingly disproportionate technical effort—in this case, what Patek Philippe calls a "deflection mechanism" (basically a Multiple shafts bent at right angles)).

The same goes for another stealth innovation (also introduced on other 2018 models): the new patented folding clasp with four independent latches - very smooth operation (we experienced it) and much faster than the standard watch The buckle is more secure (we are testing it). Tell). Can we talk about the end of the movement? No – this is Patek Philippe’s grand complication. You already know it's beautiful.

Who is it for? If you want the ultimate horological complication but can't get enough of the classic styling, this is the one for you. If you're tired of waiting for the 5711... (I'm kidding - though, with some dealers asking top dollar for the simplest Nautilus, the price difference between it and the larger complications is starting to look a lot less impressive fear.) replica Richard Mille RM 030 watches

Any surprises? How clean and simple the dial looks – although it can be cluttered with sub-dials, indicators, horizontal ribbing and sunray brushing.
