  • Catalogue Essay

    In light of the soaring popularity in luxury sports watches, the Aquanaut was introduced in 1997 as a younger sibling to the Nautilus. This striking and refreshing take on Patek Philippe’s first and only other sports watch in its entire collection enjoyed instant recognition, especially among young collectors, for it is the first model to be fitted with a “tropical” rubber strap. Initially released as a limited edition of only 1000 pieces, the Aquanaut gained its permanent position in the firm’s catalogue with the official launch of the ref. 5065/1A-010 the following year.

    The ref. 5064A was part of the second generation Aquanauts, released in 1998. Boasting a timeless black embossed dial with centre seconds and a date window at 3 o’clock, the watch is house in a modest 34mm stainless steel case that conceals its reliable in-house quartz movement, the cal. E23 SC.

    Offered in excellent overall condition, the present example is destined the grace the arms of collectors with narrow wrists. Quintessentially a Patek Philippe through and through, the ref. 5064 is designed with distinct design codes of the firm, fusing form and function that elevates any outfit.
