After releasing the first-of-its-kind World Time Minute Repeater 5513R recently, Swiss watch maker Patek Philippe has now revealed another take on its Aquanaut model. The Aquanaut Chronograph Reference 5968a isn’t hugely different to previous models, but features a range of subtle updates.

The main new addition is a self-winding chronograph, which sits alongside functions including travel time and the classic time/date setting. Elsewhere, Patek Philippe have given the new watch — which comes with a stainless steel case — a variety of rubber strap options, including a bright orange design and a plain black version. Head over to the Patek Philippe web site for more information about the Aquanaut Chronograph Reference 5968a, with the model priced at 38,600 CHF (approx. $40,700 USD).

In related news, Rolex has revealed a rose gold GMT-Master II watch.
