Patek Philippe Aquanuat Ref. 5065A - Jumbo Aquanaut
We have already established how the High Priests of High Complications that is Patek Philippe ended up making its sports watch The Nautilus. So what is this!? Another Steel Sports Patek? The story of the Aquanaut is actually quite different than that of The Nautilus - it was made as an hommage to celebrate that watches 20th Anniversary, and be an even sportier sports Patek. The first Aquanaut was launched in 1997 and paid tribute to its big brother with its bezel shape - but thats about it. The porthole style ears have been dispensed with - and the watch now has lugs that can fit either a strap or bracelet unlike the Nautilus. The watch overall has a more youthful and sport appearance. Furthermore - these early Ref. 5065 offer tritium dials that will continue to age beautifully over its many years of wear and use. The present example is very attractively priced and comes on a nearly full ‘uncut’ bracelet. The ‘Jumbo’ Case size coming in at 38mm making it the idea size for a variety of wrists.
*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.
