Notes

Patek Philippe launched the Aquanaut, starting with the reference 5060, in 1997 at the Basel Watchmaking Exhibition. A sporty but chic wristwatch destined for the everyday life and designed to seduce the younger generation. Its case of 36mm is based on the beautiful octagonal-shaped designed by Gerald Genta for its oldest, the Nautilus.
From 1998 to 2006, Patek Philippe launched the reference 5065, bigger than the reference 5060: its case measures 37mm, called “Jumbo” size. Housing the automatic caliber 315, the watch has a screw down sapphire case back.
Retailed with a rubber “tropic” strap, giving it a sportier and more modern look, the Aquanaut has seduced the new generations and has become a watch much appreciated by collectors and amateurs.
Preserved in perfect condition, the model presented is accompanied by its original box, certificate of origin, an additional rubber strap with deployant clasp signed, and its instruction booklet.
