Launched in 1997, the Aquanaut is a modern classic beloved by many for its versatility and distinctive design. Inspired by the Nautilus, the watch sported a “tropical” strap, made to be ultra-resistant to wear, salt water and UV radiation. Considering its versatility, this model has been explored in many ways by Patek, producing it with various complications and in both male and female versions. Nicknamed “Aquanaut Luce”, Patek Philippe introduced the reference 5067 in 2004, is still produced today, and represents a more luxurious version of the Lady Aquanaut. The case of the present example has been manufactured in stainless steel and preserved in very nice conditions with its iconic and distinctive embossed black dial with applied white-gold Arabic numerals and luminous indexes. The bezel is embellished with 46 diamonds of 1 carat. Offered with the certificate of origin confirming the sale of the present watch on the 16th of December 2012.
