  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe Aquanaut was launched in 1997 and was the first Patek Philippe to be worn with a resistant rubber strap, also called “Tropical”. It is no surprise that the watch soon became popular among younger clients, looking for a versatile and sportive wristwatch, without compromising the quality and craftmanship Patek Philippe is renowned for. The iconic case and distinctive checkboard pattern on the dial adds to its masculine design.

    Introduced in 2011, the Patek Philippe Aquanaut ref. 5164 Travel Time is the very first complicated Aquanaut model. Featuring a practical dual time function indicated by an additional white skeleton hand, the dial also depicts both home and local day and night indication through two small apertures. Fitted with two pushers on the left side of the case band without breaking the symmetry of the case, the pushers allow easy adjustment to the local time. Retaining its iconic case design with a comfortable size measuring 41mm, the comfort is further enhanced via a rubber strap. The reference was introduced in stainless steel first with a pink gold iteration launched after.

    The present example Patek Philippe ref. 5164 stainless steel is offered in an excellent overall condition and is further accompanied by its original Certificate of Origin, setting pin, and its presentation box.
