The present watch reference 5968 is one of the few examples through which Patek Philippe has shown a daring personality in redefining their culture of watchmaking. Being the first Aquanaut to include a fly-back chronograph function, the timepiece is distinguished by its unusual orange accent never before seen in other collections. In brand new, unused condition, the present watch impresses with its dynamism and aesthetic appeal.

The present lot is offered in great overall condition, accompanied by its full suite of accessories.
