Making its grand debut at Basel in 2007 in celebration of the Aquanaut’s ten-year anniversary, Patek Philippe, in their typical fashion, did not settle for mediocrity and successfully delivered another exciting revamp of one of the most celebrated contemporary watches of today. Compared to its predecessors, the 5167 featured a 2mm case size increase from reference 5065’s 38 mm to a more modern 40 mm.


Further improvements seen on the 5167 include the removal of the hour marker at 3 o’clock. This then allows the date window to be positioned slightly closer to the center of the dial, thus allowing space for a luminous marker on the watch’s chapter ring. Perhaps the most significant change to this generation of the Aquanaut, though, was the addition of the “Tropical” rubber strap. This strap, unlike the traditional strap of the 5167’s predecessor, is an integrated strap that securely hugs the case.


Duly important to note, increasing the present watch’s value and desirability is the Tiffany & Co. signature appearing between the hand stack and the 6 o’clock mark. Manufactured in 2016, the double-signed Aquanaut gives the watch a decidedly special collectors appeal as a result of their utmost exclusivity. 


The present watch is in unworn condition and comes complete with a full set including the Tiffany box and papers.
