Patek Philippe Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph Réf. 5990/1A-001 Automatic Watch

Patek Philippe Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph Réf. 5990/1A-001 Automatic Watch


Patek Philippe presents its first timepiece to combine a dual time zone with a chronograph. These eminently useful functions are showcased together in the new Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph. Local time is set forwards or backwards in one-hour increments by means of two pushers. Their seamless integration into the side of the case at 9 o'clock conserves the iconic design of the Nautilus, launched in 1976 and inspired by the shape of a porthole. As for the chronograph pushers, they are positioned next to the crown. The dial is distinguished by a dual day/night indication, one for each time zone, a date hand at 12 o'clock, and a 60-minute totaliser at 6 o'clock, ensuring at-a-glance legibility. This original combination of six complications was made possible by the development of a new automatic movement which is visible through the sapphire crystal back.
