Patek Philippe - “Jumbo” Aquanaut Ref. 5168G-010

Patek Philippe “Jumbo” Aquanaut Ref. 5168G-010

Following the night blue model unveiled in 2017 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Aquanaut collection, Patek Philippe presents a new version dressed in khaki green.

Introduced in 1997, the men’s Aquanaut launched its young, dynamic style in steel or rose gold versions on a composite strap. In 2017, for the 20th anniversary of the collection Patek Philippe broke new ground by presenting the first version in white gold. With its 42.2mm, this model with a midnight-blue dial and strap also claimed the title of largest Aquanaut.

In 2019, the brand is treating this white-gold “Jumbo” Aquanaut to a new version with a color scheme in khaki green, an audacious shade confering a sense of adventure, far horizons and exploits. The dial’s finely embossed checkerboard pattern provides a distinctive backdrop for the applied Arabic numerals, applied five-minute markers and baton-style hour and minute hands, all in white-gold with a luminescent coating. A sweep seconds hand and a date aperture at 3 o’clock complete the time indications.

The sapphire-crystal case back reveals the 324 S C self-winding manufacture movement that choreographs the ballet of time. With a height of just 3.3 mm, this movement is so thin that even the finished watch has the finesse for which Patek Philippe timepieces are known – and that despite a guaranteed water resistance to 120 m worthy of a dedicated performance model.

The rounded octagonal case is enhanced by a polished finish on the flat and a satin finish on the caseband, while the bezel alternates between vertically satin-finished flats and polished flanks. The water-resistant strap contributes the benefits of its composite material: it is ultra-resistant to traction, wear, salt water and ultraviolet radiation. It also features the new patented Aquanaut fold-over clasp, whose four independent catches optimize the security of the opening and closing action.
