In October 2022, Patek Philippe unveiled its first-ever automatic ladies' chronograph within the contemporary and refined Aquanaut Luce collection.
Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce Rainbow 7968/300R-001, made in rose gold, is specifically tailored to the dynamic women of today. It is distinguished by a meticulously set rainbow array of baguette diamonds and a palette of vibrant sapphires. This chronograph harmoniously fuses a vivacious sports appeal with the expertise of fine jewelry making. It is complemented with three exceptionally robust composite straps in shades of red, matte beige, and matte white.
The 40 mm watch showcases a white mother-of-pearl dial, adorned with the Aquanaut pattern, baguette multi-colored sapphire hour markers, and gold applied numerals.
Furthermore, the watch is embellished with 40 multi-colored sapphires, totaling 2.31 carats, and 40 diamonds totaling 2.05 carats on the bezel. The hour markers include 12 multi-colored sapphires adding up to 0.31 carat. Additionally, there are 10 diamonds, equal to 0.36 carat, on the fold-over clasp. In total, the timepiece houses 52 baguette-cut multi-colored sapphires (2.62 carats) and 50 baguette-cut diamonds (2.41 carats).
Though initially intended for women, this beautiful rainbow timepiece has caught the eye of men as well. It has been spotted on the wrists of several male celebrities and athletes, attesting to its universal appeal.
This timepiece retails for $212,750, but on the secondary market it trades for about $490,000.
Now, let's delve into the details of these celebrities who have been seen flaunting this exquisite timepiece.
