The Aquanaut Travel Time ref. 5650 Replica Advanced Research is the first wristwatch to utilise a compliant mechanism time in watchmaking, making it an intriguing idea on multiple levels.
While the earlier quartet of Advanced Research Fake Patek Philippe Watches were all calendars, the new Aquanaut uses Patek Philippe’s sporty dual time zone wristwatch as a base. The Aquanaut Advanced Research is equipped with the calibre 324 S C FUS.
Functionally it is identical to the movement inside the stock Aquanaut Travel Time ref. 5164, but the Advanced Research version goes about its business in a completely different manner. The first innovation rolled out with the new Aquanaut is a reshaped Spiromax hairspring.
With the Aquanaut Advanced Research Luxury Patek Philippe Replica Watches debuts a new and improved Spiromax hairspring with two terminal curves that reproduce the effects of the Grossmann curve and Phillips curve that are often found in traditional hairsprings of high-end watches.
That’s accomplished with slight bulges in the width of the spring on its inner and outer curves, an exceptionally fine adjustment possible only because of the DRIE technique used to make silicon parts.
Patek Philippe Replica Swiss Movement applied the compliant mechanism to the second time zone display, replacing the traditional network of levers and springs with a crab-like structure with four crossed leaf springs – one pair for the pushers and another pair for the beaks that rotate the gear that moves the second time zone hand backwards or forwards.
