Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce Haute Joaillerie Reference 5062/450

In this new rose-gold Haute Joaillerie version, the Aquanaut Luce combines the most complex jewel setting techniques (invisible and snow setting). The dial, the case, the lugs, and the clasp are totally set with diamonds in 25 different sizes and shapes (brilliant cut, baguette, trapeze) that together form a unique geometric pattern. An aesthetic and technical masterpiece: Even the hands are set with baguette diamonds, and a brilliant-cut diamond graces the opening in the hour-wheel pipe.
