  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe Aquanaut was launched in 1997 and was the first Patek Philippe to be worn with a resistant rubber strap. Introduced in 2011, the Patek Philippe Aquanaut reference 5164 Travel Time is the very first complicated Aquanaut model. Featuring a practical dual time function indicated by an additional 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 reference 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.

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
