Like its predecessors in the Patria family, the Admiral Blue exudes both mechanical and aesthetic perfection. To achieve its impeccably smooth and glossy dial, several layers of enamel must be applied, with each layer polished to perfection after every single application. Such is the dedication of Tutima, with the amount of time and effort that goes into creating a flawless work of art. On the dial, stainless steel hands manufactured in-house complement the lustrous blue enamel background beautifully.
The Patria Admiral Blue comes in a 43mm stainless steel case, with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Its hand-stitched strap is made of blue alligator leather, matching the dial. At the back, the Patria’s gold-plated Calibre Tutima 617 automatic movement can be seen through the transparent crystal.
