  • Catalogue Essay

    For the 10th anniversary of the Aquanaut, Patek Philippe released the ref. 5167, which surprised collectors and featured new upgrades compared to the previous ref. 5165.

    First, one may notice that the dial has been upgraded with a more defined pattern, a larger case measuring 40mm diameter and a new three link bracelet with satin-finished center links. Giving the watch a more robust appeal with contemporary dimensions, the ref. 5167 has become today one of the most sought-after Aquanaut models.

    The present example Patek Philippe Aquanaut ref. 5167/1A-001 from circa 2008 belongs to an early example of the reference. Bearing a lengthy bracelet and complete with its full set off accessories, the present example is a perfect timepiece for daily wear.

  • 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.
