We are proud to introduce this highly sought after Patek Philippe Aquanaut watch for sale in mint condition.
The definition of Swiss luxury and prestige in watchmaking, Patek Philippe timepieces are widely considered to be the pinnacle of the most luxurious and special wristwatches available around the world. Unrivalled in their approach to perfection and craftsmanship, Patek Philippe watches are highly sought-after due to their quality, intrinsic value and the fact there are not many produced compared to other luxury watch manufacturers.
When launched in 1997, the Aquanaut created a sensation. It was young, modern and unexpected from such a “traditional” brand like Patek. Its case was a rounded octagon, inspired by that of the Nautilus. And it sported a “tropical” strap, made of a new composite material ultra-resistant to wear, salt water and UV radiation.
This version the reference 5167A-001 was launched in 2007 and is still produced today thanks to its classic design. Set in a polished 40.8mm stainless steel case with a brushed bezel, the dial still features the embossed rounded criss-cross texture, which became less pronounced than on the 90’s models. It is a clean black fusé colour with large block hour markers and hands with luminous filling. There is also applied full Arabic numerals and a date feature at 3 o’clock, which are protected by a flat sapphire crystal glass. The watch is powered by the Patek automatic calibre 324 S C movement, which is visible through an exhibition caseback. Water resistant to 120m thanks to its screw-down crown the watch comes fitted on an unworn + uncut black ‘tropical’ composite strap featuring the same pattern as the dial with a steel Patek triple-folding clasp.
Originally purchased in 2014 and in mint condition, not worn since its 2022 service with Patek. The watch comes supplied with the original inner and outer boxes, Patek Philippe booklets, instruction manual, leather booklet, additional uncut tropical rubber strap (sealed). service documentation (2017 & 2022), original purchase invoice and certificate of origin.
