Debuted in 1997 as a statement of casual elegance, the Aquanaut collection has enjoyed a number of variations such as sizes and metals. Reminiscent of the Nautilus, the present Aquanaut reference 5065/1 is fitted with a beautiful octagonal shaped bezel with alternating brushed and satin finish. Encased in stainless steel, the watch retains a well-preserved case inspired by a marine porthole and a solid steel bracelet with big and massive links. The embossed texture of the black guilloché dial kidnaps: one gets lost in the depth of its dial thanks to the thickness of the applied luminous material on the hour marks and on the white-gold hands. With its contemporary design, the Aquanaut has become a true classic. Furthermore, the watch comes with the certificate of origin, an extract from the archives confirming its production in 2005, leather wallet, additional strap and Patek’s deployant.
