  • Catalogue Essay

    -In 2017, Patek Philippe released the ref. 5168G-001 featuring a blue dial with a 42.2mm diameter case to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Aquanaut. An instant success and extremely well-received at its initial launch, it is still today one of the hardest to obtain references at the boutique.

    -Housed in a prestigious and hefty white gold case, the diameter was enlarged to 42.2mm and featured an eye catching gradient blue dial going from electric blue in the center to marine in the outer part.

    -The watch's sporty looks, stealth white gold case, visual dial and overall rarity make it a must have for the Patek Philippe collector.

    -In virtually "like new" condition and from 2020, the present timepiece is accompanied by its full set of accessories.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
