  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1997, the Aquanaut was introduced as a younger sibling to the Nautilus, Patek Philippe’s first and only other sports watch in its entire collection . A force to be reckoned with, this striking and youthful model was the first to be fitted with an exotic “tropical” rubber strap, one of several clever features that enjoyed much recognition since its conception, especially among younger enthusiasts. Initially launched as a 1000-piece limited edition, the Aquanaut became a permanent fixture in the firm’s catalogue with the official release of the ref. 5065.

    The present ref. 5067A is a stainless steel Aquanaut “Luce”, boasting a bold and brazen electric blue “grenade” dial, perfectly contrasted with bright red accents in the seconds hand and quarter-markers. Housed in a modest 35.6mm stainless steel case, the diamond-set bezel truly brings the watch to life and accentuates its sporty elegance. Concealed beneath its solid screw-down case back is the cal. E23 SC, the reliable in-house quartz movement that powers the watch.

    Offered in excellent overall condition, this Aquanaut “Luce” is destined and designed for collectors with narrower wrists. The diamond-embellished timepiece is both eclectic and bold, which embodies the design codes of Patek Philippe by fusing form and function, along with the ability to amplify or spice up any outfit.
