And like many Patek Philippe watches with automatic winding function, it operates at three Hz, or 18 000 BPH (beats per hour). To set the time correctly, you need only turn the crown twice every 12 hours; after this initial adjustment, the hands will move automatically. You also get a perpetual calendar display with month and day indications for 2032 up until 2100. What's more? It comes in rose gold!
