Patek Philippe Baselworld 2018 Predictions: Nautilus, Aquanaut, Calatrava

Baselworld and Patek Philippe watches means must-see (YouTube) TV. This feature spotlights the 2017 highlights and 2018 possibilities for new Patek Philippe watches from the Nautilus, Aquanaut, and Calatrava model lines. 2017 was the 20th anniversary of the Aquanaut sports watch, and Patek Philippe threw its junior sports watch family a birthday party with Aquanauts 5650G and 5168G. The Patek Philippe Nautilus was unchanged following the 40th anniversary revelry of 2016, but many are speculating that a new Patek Philippe Nautilus perpetual calendar or a tribute to the 1998 reference 3710 power reserve might be seen at Baselworld 2018. The Patek Philippe Calatrava dress watch will mark the 65th anniversary of a watch that can be considered part of this extended family tree; the 1953 Patek Philippe 2526 automatic. Will a new Patek Calatrava debut to honor the legacy of the Geneva powerhouse's first automatic watch? Moreover, certain Patek Philippe watches are slated for retirement, and the list of watches to be discontinued includes references 5960/1A-001, 5960/1A-010, the Gondolo 5200G pair, the 5208P and 5207P/700 grand complications. Fans of craft arts will mourn the passing of the 5131R Cloisonne enamel Calatrava travel time. Possible replacements include a regular production version of the spectacular 5531R world time minute repeater that launched as a 10-piece limited series at the July 2017 Patek Philippe Grand Exhibition in New York City; a precious metal variant of the 5522A Calatrava Pilot's Watch may become a regular model following the 600-piece steel 5522A in steel that was available solely at the Grand Exhibition. However, the launch of new Patek Philippe watches is inevitable at Baselworld 2018.
