As fashion for clothing has become more relaxed in recent years, and formal attire has become less appealing to consumers, the popularity for sport and easy to wear timepieces have seen an exponential growth. The Aquanaut which may be the Nautilus of tomorrow was designed specifically to cater to the needs of its new and younger sporty clientele.


The present watch reference 5968 is one of the few examples which Patek Philippe has shown its daring personality in redefining their culture of watchmaking. Being the first Aquanaut to be tailored with a fly back chronograph function, the timepiece is distinguished by its unusual orange accent that has never been seen before among other Patek Philippe collections. In brand new, unused condition, the present watch symbolizes a new chapter for Patek Philippe with its dynamic and remarkable appeal.
