Patek Philippe brings five new works to the 2016 Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show. The first new work combines two well-received complication functions, which will surely become the first big surprise of this year. This was followed by a special design by Patek Philippe to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of its acclaimed annual calendar watch. The other three masterpieces are also revealed one by one: the third one is made for women’s slender wrists, the fourth one remakes the classics, and the fifth one proves once again that Patek Philippe’s complex functions are unmatched.

Ref. 5930 World Time Chronograph
Calendar watch Ref. 5396, which commemorates the twentieth anniversary of the birth of the calendar watch in an elegant manner (its success began with the Ref. 5035 calendar watch introduced at the Basel International Watch & Jewellery Show in 1996. A few months later, it was selected as ‘Best watch of the year’). Since then, 21 models have been launched in the calendar, with a variety of dials in platinum, gold, white and rose gold, and women’s diamond models with mother-of-pearl dials are even more striking. Today, the new Ref. 5396 watch is the 22nd member of the collection.
Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 7122 Women’s Watch
The Calatrava “Timeless White” Ref. 7122 for women’s slender wrists speaks for women. The white dial highlights the eternal beauty, the innovative gem setting technology makes white diamonds more dazzling, and the exquisite case design is its charm.
Ref. 5230 World Time
Due to political reasons, the official city name of the world time zone has been revised several times, and the time zone scale of the world time watch needs to be adjusted accordingly. Patek Philippe took this opportunity to re-sculpt the dial and case of the World Time watch. The new Ref. 5230 watch came into being, replacing all previous World Time watches.
Patek Philippe Master Chord Watch Ref. 6300
In addition, the King of Complexity in the Patek Philippe regular watch series officially changed hands this year. The unique and unique shape of the master string watch Ref. 6300, with a total of 20 complex functions including 5 timekeeping functions, has become the new king in the regular series. Its case is decorated with a hand-engraved Paris studded pattern, which is different from the limited edition Masterpiece Chord Watch Ref. 5175, which is limited to 7 pieces and hand-engraved in white gold.
