Heavily inspired by the Nautilus, the Aquanaut was first introduced in 1996, dedicating a more contemporary and sporty approach to attract a younger audience. The present reference 5167 was introduced in 2007, cased in stainless steel and features a black embossed dial, complimenting exceptionally well with the rubber strap. An elegant example of modern watchmaking, the present Aquanaut is complete with its box and certificate and has been retained in nice original condition.
