The Patek Philippe Aquanaut was launched in 1997, and celebrated its 20th anniversary last year. The watch was first introduced as a limited production but was hugely successful but also controversial like its predecessor the Nautilus. It is a model of casual elegance that combines similarity with the 3800.
Its fascinating appeal originates from a surprisingly modern form with a gently rounded octagonal shape. The surface structure of the landmark dial reflects the attractive texture of the tropical rubber strap. The complex construction of the case is underscored by the screw-down crown for extra protection on the wrist of active people. The “Tropical” strap, made of a high-tech composite, is soft, comfortable, resistant and hypoallergenic and t gives it a very different sporty look.
The Aquanaut 5167A is one of the most popular watch in the market today. It is versatile, sophisticated, modern and yet classic.
